How to Use the Event Description Editor

Last Updated: May 28, 2015 03:54PM EDT
As of July 24th, 2013, the Meetup event description editor has been simplified so Organizers can create Meetups with a consistent look and feel across all platforms. Formatting options such as color and font-size have been removed, so Meetups render better on mobile devices. Meetups scheduled on the calendar before July 24th will retain their formatting, unless edited. Past Meetups will keep their original formatting.

Meetup event descriptions are designed to help Organizers paint a picture of what their Meetups will be like for members. Organizers can add photos, links to resources or use basic formatting options to make key information stand out.

Here are some best practices to keep in mind when scheduling great Meetups:
  • Keep it simple. Make it easy for members to scan your Meetup content for relevant information.  
  • Use bold, italics or bullets for emphasis. Highlight important details so they stand out.
  • Add photos to give members a sense of where you're going and who attends your Meetups. It’s an optional feature, but a nice touch when setting expectations for your members:
