Please note, even if your Event is free to enter, you must connect your Hoofpick account to a Stripe account first, otherwise you will be unable to create an Event.
If you have already connected Stripe to your Hoofpick account, go to your dashboard and navigate to Event in the menu on the left. Use the drop down to click on Event.
To create a new Event, click on the green + button in the top right.
Complete the Basic Information. Any field marked with a * must be completed before you proceed to the next step.
Make sure the Status is set to 'Active' for people to see your Event. It can be set to 'Inactive' if you want to create an Event, but only you can see it.
If you would like your Event to be seen on the public domain at hoofpick.net, make sure you set Display on Hoofpick to 'Active'. But if you want your Event to only appear on your private domains (your Website, Facebook Page, Mobile App) then set this to 'Inactive'.
Once you have completed the Basic Information, click Next.
Give a Description of your Event. You have an unlimited character space to provide important details about the Event (e.g. class information, entry closing date, prize money, etc.). Then click Next.
Complete the Event Information, for example:
(Please note these fields are optional).
Fixed Horse Fee: £5 ground fee per horse (do not include a currency symbol)
Fixed Rider Fee: £5 programme fee (do not include a currency symbol)
Late Entry Fee: 50% for late entries
Apply to entries after: 13/12/2019
Then create Classes for your Event, for example:

Entry Fee: £10 (do not include a currency symbol)
To add more Classes, simply click on Add Event/Class and a new space will be provided for an additional Class.
When you have finished adding Classes and Fees, click Next.
Now you can add Media to your Event. Include images and documents (PDF files such as schedules, rules, etc.) by selecting 'Choose file' to upload a file* from your device.
To add multiple images or documents, click on More and a new space will be provided for an additional upload.
*All files should be less than 2MB each, and total upload on any submission should not exceed 10MB. If you experience difficulties uploading multiple files, try a lesser quantity, finish creating the Event, and then go back and edit it to add more.
When you have finished uploading Media files to your Event, click Next.
You can give your Event Sponsor a feature photo and link to their website if you complete the Sponsor Information.
If you don't have a Sponsor, skip this step and click Next.
You must provide the Terms & Conditions for entering your Event in the T&Cs tab. This is a required field to complete before you click Next.
Lastly, you can create FAQs by entering a frequently asked question about your Event and then providing the appropriate answer.
To add multiple FAQs simply click More and a new space will be provided for an additional question and answer.
To delete a FAQ, click on the red delete button next to it.
Once you have completed all the details and required fields for your Event, click Submit.
You will be taken back to Event in your dashboard with a message to confirm 'Event has been inserted successfully'. Your Event will now appear in the list below.
