Organise activities and sporting events directly from the Spond platform. It's easy and stress-free, giving you more time on the pitch or wherever your activities take place.


What types of events are available?

Single event and match

Suitable for matches, tournaments and other activities. These can be created one by one, or you can mass-create individual events via season planner. If you want to set up many events or matches at the same time, it's recommended to use the season planner.

Recurring event

Suitable for training sessions that are on the same day of the week and at the same time. You can choose whether the event should be repeated every week, every other week or every month. Monthly recurrence occurs on the same calendar day each month, regardless of the day of the week.

What features are available within events?

We have created a separate article that explains the different settings in more detail, which you can find here.



Lack of access to create an event

You must be an admin in the group to be able to create events. If you are an admin but still do not see the Add button or the + sign under the Events tab, it means that your admin role does not include access to Events.

How to check which admin role you have

  1. Open the group where you are trying to create an event

  2. Select Members inside the group

  3. Select the tab Administrators

  4. Select your own name and look under Administrator roles

How to check which access rights your admin role includes

  1. Open the same group where you checked which admin role you've (you can have different roles in the different groups)

  2. Select the three small dots (...) to go to group settings

  3. Scroll down to Roles and rights

  4. Select the role you've

  5. If you lack the necessary rights, contact an admin in the group that has the right to edit admins



FAQs

Do participants need to be invited right away or can it also be done afterwards?


You can invite more participants at any time after the event has been created. To do this, open the event after it's been created and select the Invite -button you find inside the event.

Can I export events via open API?


We do not currently offer an open API for Spond, so the ability to export posts to external websites is not available. We are constantly evaluating future features based on feedback from our users.
