Creating Events - At Zimidy we encourage creating events with open spots for new friends to join, but you can create events in several ways. Here are the event types on Zimidy:
There are a lot of other event settings worth discussing as well, let's spend some time on those:
That should do it for events, if we're missing anything, let us know!
Now that you've created your event, let's talk about how to manage it.
There are a few features worth calling out that event organizers have exclusive access to.
After the Attendee Panel, you get to the Partner Panel. The coolest part about the Partner Panel is that we get to showcase local businesses, these are businesses owned by your friends and neighbors that can help you have a great time at the type of event you're setting up right now. Many of these businesses offer special pricing or special offers to the Zimidy community, so, don't be shy, take advantage of these great offers and get a helping hand from someone right in your town.
If you have a business and want to show up in this area, let us know, we'd love to hear from you.
That wraps up the manage event functions on Zimidy, but, there is one more really important feature that comes up after you finish an event. Providing reviews.
There are few things in life better than getting something for nothing. At Zimidy, we love to give our active members something for nothing. Host events with Zimidy, get points. Attend events on Zimidy, get points. Review people, get points. Invite your friends/family to join, get points. Come by our offices and wash our cars, I'm sure there are some points in there for you somewhere. Definitely a high-five, for sure. Just to be clear, let's do a quick recap of how points are earned:
We know that earning points is only great if you can do something useful, so, we provide great opportunities to use those points.
Be careful! If we identify any attempts to improperly use the system to gain extra reward points you may lose all earned points or be subject to account termination.
Not all points are created equal. Earned points are the good ones; you can use these right away to do whatever you want to do with them. Pending points are a promise that if everything remains the same, you'll receive these points in the future. Points can be pending, for instance, if you create a new event. The points that you will earn are considered pending until the event is completed. If the event happens to be cancelled instead, then... no points for you! Those pending points will be removed from your total.
DFA is our buzzy term for Chat. It stands for "Down for Anything", and while it isn't literal, it means you're willing to meet new people and have conversations to set up events in your area. Can't find anything in the event list that you want to do right now, well, just set up your DFA settings and chat with people that want to do the same stuff you're looking to do. We're confident you can get something together. Really though, it's not necessarily "Down for Anything", it's "Down for the things you set up as interests in your profile", DFTTYSUAII... ok that's a terrible acronym. We'll stick with DFA, we think you get the point. When you can't find anything you want to do in your searches and you want to do something right now, just set DFA ON and browse local people in your area to connect with now. We make it easy to search nearby and within the things you want to do, today. You'll have a cool new event kicked off in no time.
DFA Browse/Chat connects you to everyone in your area. Turn DFA on, from your profile, add your interests, and you're on your way to a memorable day/night! When you access the DFA Browse/Group Chat window you notice two sections:
There are a few options when chatting with other Zimidy members:
We let you slice and dice events in as many ways as we could think of, just to make it easier for you to find what you care about. If it got a little confusing though, here is a breakdown of what each of the filters is set up to do:
