When scheduling an event, you can specify the event to be public, private or unlisted.

Public event—appears on the Upcoming Events page and the Recorded Events page, if the event host makes the recording public. On the Upcoming Events page, an Enroll button appears for the event until the host starts the event.

Private event—appears on the Upcoming Events page and the Recorded Events page, if the event host makes the recording public. On the Upcoming Events page, the text Private appears instead of an Enroll button. Once the time is within 15 minutes of the event's scheduled starting time, and the host starts the event, a Join button appears.

Unlisted event—does not appear on the Upcoming Events page. However, it appears on the Recorded Events page if the event host makes the recording public.
