If you’re like most users, you’re crazy busy. When you’re working on event management, you want to get things done right then and there, on your schedule.

Who likes creating a support ticket at 1am then having to wait because you can’t find the documentation you need? Nobody, that’s who.

This is why VEM’s documentation is designed to make finding what you need intuitive, simple to understand, and quick to implement.

Pro users get a special onboarding guide delivered right to their email (don’t worry free users, you can access it directly at the documentation site).
