Managing People & Organization Profiles

People Administration saves you time, money, communicate with your audience, and sell your events online. You can create reusable profiles for staff, instructors, speakers, volunteers, sponsors, or any type of role someone might fill within an event and/or organization. Managing profiles is easier than writing a blog post.

An active subscription for the People Administration feature upgrade is needed to manage people (e.g. staff or speakers) on your Event Smart website.

It is also included in the business plan. Want to upgrade to this plan? Make the switch from your My Account page on

Display is Dependent on Your Theme

Each of the front-end views are dependent on the theme you are using. Some themes have different colors, layouts, and spacing. Some themes will display the full profile information on the archive pages, and some themes will rename the archive pages with the name of the People type.

The images shown above are from the Eighties theme.
