Why should I use MangoApps Events?

MangoApps events are the easy way to invite employees, customers, and partners to attend a get-together, or schedule something in advance so that MangoApps users are notified. Any meeting that needs an RSVP or guest list can be made into a MangoApps event.

Who can attend my Events?

Full Company: Any MangoApps user can attend your event. In addition to MangoApps users, external guests can attend your event, just invite them by email address.

Private: Users can request to join if they were not invited explicitly. The event is visible but not the contents to uninvited users.

Secret: Users cannot see this event exists without being invited first.

Team: Any member of the team can RSVP the event. This event is not visible to users outside of the team.

How can attendees interact through events?

Attendees interact with the event wall. On the wall, users can post short messages, pictures, or links that other attendees can see. Attendees add comments to what has already been posted and can check back later to see what’s new.

How can I see the event guest list?

Users can see the event guest list by:

  1. Click “Events” from the left navigation bar.
  2. Find and click on “View Full Event” in the event on the upcoming events calendar.

What are the Event privacy types?

There are 4 privacy types for events:

  • “Full Company” such that anyone can join without an invitation.
  • “Private” where Event administrators must invite attendees or attendees must request an invite by searching for an event.
  • “Secret” where the event cannot be searched for and an explicit invitation is required.
  • “Team” Any team member can join at will, non-members cannot.

The privacy settings are decided by the Event creator or an administrator during the creation of the event.
