To learn more about Distributed Organizing, see articles on set up, Approval Process, and Volunteer Event Creation.

Events created through Mobilize’s Distributed Organizing feature will be synced with your integrations like other Mobilize events. However, these events will only be synced after they have been approved. 

If you are using VAN, the event type that you choose in initial setup will need to be mapped in your VAN settings. Person record matching as well as volunteer attendance statuses and roles will all be synced in the usual fashion once the event has been approved.

*NOTE: Distributed Organizing events will be included with your other promoted events to be displayed on promoting organizations Public Feed.
