What types of events can I create?
Cally.com has four event types:
- Group event
The organizer suggests a number of dates/times. Participants can indicate their availability for each date/time with 'Yes', 'Maybe' or 'No'. The organizer can see which date(s) is the best for the whole group and set it.
The organizer provides a number of dates/times. Participants can indicate their availability per date/time with 'Yes', 'Maybe' or 'No'. The organizer can schedule one or more participants per date/time (at once or per date/time at various moments).
- Attendance (RSVP)
With this type, the date(s) specified by the organizer are already fixed in advance. The organizer only wants to know who will be present or absent. Participants can indicate their attendance per date/time with 'Yes', 'Maybe', or 'No'. No final date is set afterwards.
The organizer specifies one or multiple dates/times (these are fixed and will not be set or confirmed afterwards). Participants can register for a desired date/time (only 'Yes'). The organizer can maximize the number of people per date/time (same for all dates or different per date/time). The number of dates/times a participant can register for can also be maximized. This determines and limits the turnout.
When creating the event, the type of event can be set in the 'What' step, where you specify the event title. At the bottom under ‘Type of event’ are the different types of events you can choose from:
Please note that once the event has been created, you can’t (always) switch types of events. So consider carefully if the chosen event type fits with what you want to achieve.
