Basic structure of the event overview

Julia Walther Updated by Julia Walther

This article explains the basic structure of the Sweap overview page and introduces the different ways to view your events.

The card view is set as your default view. You can also use the list view or the calendar view. Events that you archive can be found in the archive.

1. Basic funtions, fields and buttons

You will most often use the search bar to search for an explicit event. However, you can also quickly search for specific terms or keywords within your overview page.

You will find the search bar in almost all menu items in Sweap - there are only a few areas where you will not see a search bar.

More information about our search function can be found here.

1.2 Creating an event

With the button "+ Create Event" you create a new event. After successfully saving a new event, it appears in your overview. You can find the button "+ Create event" in the tile view as well as in the list view.

More information about creating a new event are stored within this article.

2. The different views in Sweaü

2.1 The card view (startpage / default page in Sweap)

Your events are displayed as cards with the most important information, such as the current status of your guest list. You can sort events according to various criteria, search for a specific event or create a new event. Clicking on the card opens the desired event and takes you directly to the dashboard of the event.

You can sort your events by clicking on the action menu "Sort". There are various options available for you to sort by.

With this function you can filter your events. You can filter for

  • Event Tags
  • Visibility Groups
  • Type of Event
Sorting events

You will find a quick menu in the upper right corner of each of your event cards - you can recognise it by the three dots. You can use the quick menu to

  • pin or unpin your event (pinned events are highlighted and displayed enlarged at the top of your cards view)
  • change the status of the event
  • duplicate, archive or even delete your event.

2.2 The list view

The list view shows all the events information within a list.

There are many fields that are displayed already per default, for example the name of your event and the date of your event (start and end time).

You can use the "Visibility" button (in the upper right-hand area of the screen) to show and hide many other fields of your events and put them in your preferred order by dragging and dropping. This way you always have the most important facts about your events at a glance.

2.3 The status filter within the action bar

Within the tile view and the list view, we show you the status of your events. This gives you the opportunity to get an even better overview about your events and their particular state.

By default, we always show you "All" events first. Use the status filter in the action bar to filter and display your events by status.

For example, if you only want to see the events that are currently running, click on "Ongoing" in the action bar and the remaining events with different status will be hidden.

3.2 The filters

You will find filter fields in the row below the column name. There you can select the corresponding filters. At the bottom of the screen, you can see whether you have set filters and which filters you have set, and how many entries were found using these filters. The button next to the display of the activated filters can also be used to reset them.
