The petition events feature was built to allow campaign creators to run more active and robust campaigns. The campaign events tools are not automatically available for all campaigns. Instead, these events tools become available once the petition is moderated to good or above AND has received more than 100 signatures. Once the petition passes these thresholds, a new Organise Events tab will appear in the campaign creator tools and an Organise Hand-In Event button will appear in the Deliver Petition tab.
After clicking the Set Up an Event button in the Organise Events tab (or clicking the Organise Hand-In Event button in the Deliver Petition tab), the petition creator can quickly create an event associated with their campaign. These campaign events look like other events, except that they list the petition name on the event page.
During the petition event creation process, which is otherwise the same as the process for creating other events, the petition creator will have the option of inviting the current signers of their petition to join the event. The invitation will need to be approved by organization administrators before being sent.
Once the event has been created, organization administrators will need to moderate the event. If the event is set to good or above, new signers will be shown an event pop-up asking them if they want to attend the event.
You can also choose to show petition signers the normal social share pop up, followed by the event invitation pop up, and then the donation modal. This post-signing configuration can be set in the petition's admin settings.
