How to add a calendar to PlaceCal

NB: This guide uses Eventbrite as an example, but it will work for any calendar feed.

Log in to PlaceCal, then click the button labelled “add new calendar”


It’ll take you to the page in the screenshot below, and your Eventbrite organiser URL goes in the box outlined in red:


Other important fields on that page:

Partner Organiser: Make sure your organisation is selected from the dropdown list there.

Name: You can give your calendar any human-readable name you like here. This should be one that will make sense to you later, in case you add multiple calendars and want an easy way to tell them apart.

URL: This is where to put the organiser URL you’ve copied from Eventbrite. It’s the feed PlaceCal can take your events from. Whenever you add new events to Eventbrite, PlaceCal will pick them up.

Importer Mode: Leave this set to Auto.

Location: It should be obvious which one applies to you here, there are various ones to cover various cases - such as organisations that only meet in one venue, multiple venues, or that have no specific venue. If it’s not obvious or there doesn’t seem to be an option that applies to your organisation, please contact the person you’ve been meeting with about PlaceCal, or alternatively support@placecal.org.

Contact information: None of this is compulsory, it depends entirely on what you want to share. The information on the left (Public Contact), will show to anyone looking at your events on PlaceCal. The information on the right (Partnership Contact), will only be visible to PlaceCal developers - it’s there in case we need to contact you about this calendar for any reason.


Click “Create Calendar” at the bottom of that page, and you’re done. PlaceCal will queue it for import, though it may take a few minutes to start showing.
