Change who is the event admin

The website developer/host for our website is getting notifications about pending payments for one of our events. When I look in EE>Management>Message, I can see the message that was sent to him and it has him listed as “event admin” so that’s why he got the notification. But I cannot figure out how to change the event admin to me and my email instead of his. I looked through all the settings and don’t see this anywhere. Please, can someone tell me how to change the email associated with the event admin?

Hi there,

You need to change the account set as the author of the event.

Go to Event Espresso -> Events -> {click on the event}

Look for the ‘Author’ metabox in that section and it will show the developers account. (If you don’t see an author metabox, click on ‘Screen Options’ top right and make sure the checkbox is clicked there).

Set the author to your account (or whichever account you want to use) and save.

The emails will now go to the email address set on the account your selected.
