How to enable Events in Una Social Network

Introduction

In Social Media, events are intended to broadcast upcoming real-world gatherings and occasions. Whether it is about a cultural event, business-related event, or simply a party, your users would appreciate the ability to organize and invite other people using your platform.

In this tutorial, we are going to step-by-step guide you on how to enable and configure the Event feature in your Una Social Network.

 

Getting Started

In Una, the Event functionality is empowered by the Events module. This module is not available by default in a fresh Una installation. Fortunately, the process of installing additional modules is extremely simple and straightforward. You can find detailed instructions in our guide on How to install Apps in Una Social Network.

As soon as the module is installed, you can see it listed at the Home Page of your Una Studio.
