For a Free Invitation, how do I invite my Facebook friends or post my event on Facebook?
First, please go to Guest Options under Step 1 when you are creating your invite, and if you have already sent your invite, Guest Options is located under Manage Invitation and Edit Details. Under Guest Options, please check the box to Allow Guests To Share Event, which will allow guests to RSVP from Facebook.
The Post to Facebook link is located in a couple of places for your convenience. The first place is when you are adding guests on the 2nd step, the Post to Facebook blue outlined button appears on the right hand side.
You can then start writing in your Facebook friends' names, and they will auto-populate just like when you tag a friend on Facebook.
If you add MULTIPLE friends in the "To" field, they will all be sent the invitation in a group. If you would like the invitation to be sent privately, each guest name should be type in the "To" field and be sent individually. So you will repeat the sending process for as many guests that you have that you would like to send the invite to privately.
You may also type in a group name if you belong to a group, to add the invitation to your group.
If you've already sent out your invitation, just click on your event title Under Upcoming Events, and you'll see Manage Invitation in green, below the design you chose for your invitation.
Once you click on Manage Invitation, you will see Post to Facebook in blue. We've included a screen shot below to help you locate this added feature.
You may be asked to sign into your Facebook account at any time during this process if you're not already signed in on your computer. Please note that your Facebook friends will NOT appear on your guest list until they RSVP to your event. Once they RSVP, they will be included in the automatic reminder that is sent to your Yes, Maybe, and Not Yet Replied guests.
Stay tuned for the ability to import your Facebook contacts into your Evite Contacts list in the future.
