Starts At API

Link to Starts At using URL parameters

The Basics

You can link to Starts At without using our form and instead using parameters in the URL. This is handy if you want to programatically include Starts At links many times throughout a website. The following features, however, are not available using this method: event description, event URL, and all premium features.

Parameter values must be URL encoded. In our documentation, however, we show both unencoded and encoded values for clarity.

These examples show the many ways you can link to Starts At.

Parameter iso for ISO 8601

Your development tools probably support this format. XKCD said it best.

Parameter title Great Event

This sets the name of the event at the top of the page. You can also set this using msg instead of title.

Parameter t only 13 2020 at 11am PDT at 9pm EST

Starts At will take its best guess handling a range of time formats. Note: this method will always display the event's local time in UTC.

Parameters t, d, and tz

The tz parameter can be the long name of any timezone from the dropdown menu on Starts At.
