Next, click on +New email, add the Subject and choose a Template. Now you can edit the email inviting your public to register for your event.

To learn more about the dynamic links you can use for the email configuration check this article.

Magic links are a form of passwordless login. Instead of the user entering any login credentials to sign in, they are sent a URL with an embedded token. It's imperative to remember that those links are unique and non-transferable. If the link is shared and someone else accesses the event, the first access will be disconnected!

Confirmation Email

By default, when people are added to the event and become Attendees, they will receive an automatic email from the platform with the magic link. To add or edit any information, go to Marketing > Communication > Automatic Emails.

Click on the blue button for the confirmation email. The dynamic content called {{event-address}} will automatically become the exclusive, non-transferable magic link.

This dynamic content will pull information from the platform, so you don't need to configure it. You should only configure the rest of the content that will be sent to your event participants.

Via login and password

In case you prefer disabling the magic link and give the participants access via login and password, you can also send them to the participants via email. It is advisable to also include the Virtual Lobby dynamic link.

If the participants try to use the Virtual Lobby link, they will be redirected to the login page as displayed below, once the information is entered they just need to press Login.
