Save the Date Email... IT'S HERE!

    You've asked for it, and we've officially delivered. The Save the Date email is now available across all event types in your Cvent account!

    Get your attendees to block off their calendars early for your event. With the new Save the Date email, you can let attendees know your event dates before you've even sent invitations or opened registration.

    No need to enable this in Event Configuration - just navigate to your usual Event Emails and you will find this new option in the 'Pre-Event Emails' section.

    Yes! So happy for this! We know our event dates and hotel many months before the Agenda is finished. What a great opportunity to inform potential attendees without the need to have the entire registration website set up before you can start using the integrated email marketing tools!

    Where can we get more information on this and ask questions?

    One of the things I have not tried but want to: duplicating this pre-event email and changing it. I send a lot of pre-event communications via the Cvent integrating email marketing functions in Event Management. Promoting the venue, local area, tips & tricks, incentivizing the potential attendees to come early and/or stay late to take advantage of the room rate, etc.

    Having an email object that can be sent before the event registration website is AWESOME and allows us to use the email marketing functions without having to rush launching the event before the Agenda is completed.

    How is this different from a custom email targeting undecided invitees, specifically?

    Hey @Richard Carls, great question! Unlike any other email in your Cvent account, this one can be sent before you launch your event. This allows you to continue editing and testing your event on the back-end while still sending an email out to your invitee audience.​

    @Tristen Asrejadid when your event is still in test mode and has not been launched you can only test up to 100 times. Does that mean that you can only send 100 Save the Date emails before the event is launched or can you send to a larger amount?​​

    Good question, Lauren! Since your Save The Date technically isn't a "test email", but rather a live email before your event has been launched, this does not count as part of your 100 test emails. This can be sent to all invitees added to your event ​
