Modified on Tue, 06 Sep 2022 at 04:18 PM

Venues are the locations where shifts happen. This article details how to add venues to Nowsta and how to customize them. 

Adding Venues

To add a venue, head to the Venues page and select new venue. There are a number of details you can enter for each venue in Nowsta.

Venue Name

The name of the venue is how you'll identify the venue throughout the other pages in Nowsta, so choose wisely.

Venue Address

As you enter the address, Nowsta will try to map the venue on Google maps. Take a close look at the location on Google maps to ensure you've entered the correct address.


You can enter a custom GPS geo-fence radius for each venue in Nowsta. This feature is only applicable if your organization is taking advantage of Nowsta's GPS self check-in functionality. For more information about GPS self check-in, see here

Venue Main Contact

Use this field to add contact information for the Venue's main contact, if applicable. These fields are not visible to those working the event.

Venue Worker Notes

This field is useful if you wish to share special instructions or directions with workers. Anytime a venue is selected, staff will be able to see the associated Venue Worker Notes field.

Venue Admin Notes

Only coordinators and admins can see the notes in this field.

Preferred and Restricted Workers

This section allows you to set which workers are preferred or restricted for a given venue. 

When selecting workers among your worker list, preferred workers will be prioritized and restricted workers will be hidden.
