Eventboost Integration

Eventboost is an all-in-one event management software and online registration platform which is now able to be integrated with the CrowdComms platform. 

In order to complete the integration there first must be an event created by Eventboost which will have a unique Client ID and Secret. Only Eventboost are capable of generating this information so usually it should only ever be Eventboost that will complete the integration with CrowdComms software. However on the occasions when someone other than Eventboost are generating a integration the user will need to contact Eventboost/CrowdComms client to retrieve the Client ID and Secret before attempting integration.

The user will also need to be able to login the Eventboost site as a registered user/On a 30 day free trial to retrieve the additional required data.
