Creating Events

Events are another option you can use to receive candid images. Events are tied to a candid album by default, unless you explicitly turn it off. You can access the Events tab from the left, and then click on Create Event to get started.

Next you will need to tell us a little about the event you are going to be gathering candids for. Below you will find an example for a school field trip.

After clicking on Save, you should see the newly created event. In order to get candids of this event, you will want to click on View Photos.

After someone has uploaded some photos, you will see them on this screen. For now, look at the top right and you will see a text box with a link to send to parents to upload their photos to. There is also a green copy button you can click to more quickly copy the link to paste into an email or text message.

When parents upload photos through that guest link, they will need to go through the standard approval process. They will show up under Candid Photos -> Awaiting Approval. Once approved, they will be added to the event album, and will show up when you look at the album from the Events tab or the Book designer.
