What is the difference between a public, private, and secret event?

Public, private and secret events defined

Public event— All local OpenSports users can see public events in the upcoming events list.

Private — Only members of your group, or anyone who you invite to the event, can see private events.

Secret — The event is completely hidden from your group members. Only members who you invite can see secret events.

You CAN switch an event from one privacy setting to another after it’s been posted (you could switch it from public to private; private to secret, etc).

Who can see what kind of event? Let’s break this down a bit
