On January 11, 2019 customers with EventsNow subscriptions will no longer be able to create new event pages.
On February 28 , 2019 customers with EventsNow subscriptions will no longer be able to log in to EventsNow or export data.
Why is this happening?
Network for Good partners with giveZooks! to power our events tool, EventsNow. giveZooks! will be discontinuing service to all EventsNow customers in early 2019.
What will happen to all my event ticketing data?
All event ticketing data will be inaccessible to customers after February 28th through the DonateNow dashboard. However, all historical online event ticketing transactions will still be accessible through your Donor Management System if you have it. If you choose not to upgrade your Network for Good subscription, we highly recommend exporting this information from EventsNow before September 30.
What about events I have already set up that have an end date before February 28?
You may still use your live EventsNow pages to sell tickets and you will still get your disbursement on the regular schedule for any events that have end dates before February 28. However, you will not be able to log in, edit, or access reports related to your event after February 28.
Because of this, we highly recommend launching any new events from Network for Good’s newer Event Ticketing Pages so you continue to have access to edit and view ticketing details. Furthermore, all events on EventsNow must have an end date before February 28th, 2019. After that date, any “live” EventsNow pages will be shut down.
Does this impact my other Network for Good donation pages?
No. Customers with subscriptions to DonateNow or our newer Fundraising Pages product (Everyday Giving Pages, Event Ticketing, or Peer-to-Peer) will not experience an interruption to these services.
What are my options for selling tickets to fundraising events in 2019?
You will be able to use EventsNow through February 28 (as long as pages acre created before January 11).
However, we encourage customers to use our newer Event Ticketing Pages.
We’re giving all EventsNow customers the option to upgrade to our all-in-one fundraising platform which includes a Donor Management System, Event Ticketing Pages, Everyday Giving Pages, and Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Campaign Pages at a special price. Or, you can simply replace EventsNow with our newer Event Ticketing Pages at no charge. Keep in mind, the EventsNow tool and the newer Event Ticketing Pages do have different features and we recommend upgrading to our all-in-one fundraising platform so you can seamlessly send out emails to event attendees and keep them engaged after the event, segment out contact lists, and more.
