How to manage (and resend) invitations

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Antwonne D

You can manage and even resend event invitations by returning to your event's Marketing section (part of Manage). Just go to "Email Invitations" and copy an invitation to resend it only to guests who haven't responded.

NOTE: This article is about classic invitations. This tool is no longer available for all accounts and is only accessible for users who previously had access to it. For information on Eventbrite's new email promotion feature, eblink{learn about Email Campaigns=>}.
