You can explicitly define which object and field to be mapped from Eventbrite to salesforce by clicking on the Go to Mapping as per the business requirement. We have Event, order, buyer, attendee detail, attendee profile which can mapped explicitly. Field mapping can be done for each of these objects.

For synchronizing data, go to Eventbrite Configuration page in salesforce. You can click on edit on sync configuration to make over all changes in the data to be synced. Further syncing can be done in the following ways:-
1) On demand sync by clicking on Start sync. Further go to Eventbrite Synchronization.
(Make sure to choose Eventbrite data you want to synchronize to salesforce before you start importing data from Eventbrite. The other way is that you can map the Eventbrite objects you want in salesforce.
2) Schedule a sync once in a day by setting the time.
Go to Scheduled sync and select yes next to Enabled Scheduled Sync. Just click to drop down menu next to Daily Sync time to click on time on which you want data to be scheduled.
You can turn the automatic sync off by clicking No.
3) By enabling webhooks also we can do sync.
So that app is constantly getting data from Eventbrite. With Wehbooks, you can sync Eventbrite order and Event Status changes to your salesforce account in real-time.
For this we need to click edit on webhooks section, now we need to give the external accessible URL through salesforce sites in your organization, then enter the URL in the field next to webhooks site URL
4) Finally by single event going to campaign by clicking the Eventbrite sync button on that page. This will enable the import of the data related to the Eventbrite event into the salesforce.
Note:- To run the sync successfully, the Salesforce object needs an Eventbrite Id in the Eventbrite id field.
The Salesforce object should have the Eventbrite Id if the event is created in the salesforce and if the object is not synced with salesforce then you need to feed the EventbriteEventId manually to the object.
Sync logs helps to see the activity of the logs.
Actually to see the logs go to the Integration log on the top of the page.
So increase your marketing and fundraising strategies by integrating Eventbrite with salesforce!!!
