Each event is associated with a category from your catalog, and only one event can be associated with any given category at a time. To display a list of upcoming events in your store, you must also set up a Catalog Events Carousel widget.
Manage Catalog Events
Create an Event
On the Admin sidebar, go to Marketing > Private Sales > Events.
In the upper-right corner, click Add Catalog Event.
In the category tree, choose the category that you want to associate with the event.
Because each category can have only one event at a time, any categories that already have an event are disabled.
In the Catalog Event Information section, do the following:
Catalog Event Information
For the Start Date of the event, use the calendar () to choose the date. Then, use the Hour and Minute sliders to set the time the event begins.
For the End Date of the event, use the calendar () to choose the date. Then, use the Hour and Minute sliders to set the time the event ends.
To upload an Image for the event widget, click Choose File. Then, select the image file from your directory.
In the Sort Order field, enter a number to indicate the sequence in which this event appears when listed with other events.
Select the checkbox of each page where you want to display the countdown ticker:
- Category Page
- Product Page
When complete, click Save.
