My opinion is that if you're going to be a Society organizer for a store on an ongoing basis, you will find it convenient to have all past and future games listed under a single Event, but you should talk to your Venture Captain and follow the standard operating procedure established in your area.
Keep in mind that event has different meanings on the Paizo website than on Warhorn. On Warhorn, you will have multiple events because each table is an event. But for Paizo, an event is simply a way to report tables, which is VITAL. All tables need to be reported on the Paizo website.
The advantage of posting tables on Warhorn is greater visibility. A lot of people know about Warhorn and use it find tables. This is likely why the VC asked for your tables to posted there. With all the open gaming license happenings, more and more players are looking at 2e with fresh eyes.
Talk with your VC. Helping to organize is what we are here to do. Your VC should be there to help you walk through this process.
Once you understand how Warhorn works, it is a great way to keep advertise your tables.

A'aron (sorry had to! Lolol), it is difficult for those scheduling to get a consistent group of players over 18 weeks. So while I appreciate the comment, from my stand point, it is not practical.
Much like 1e, unless the wording allows for any of your characters to gain it, only the assigned character gains the boon.
As pointed out, there are ways to transfer a specific boon or item to another character with ACP. That is new for 2e and a welcome benefit.
You have never played at my table.
Maybe it is something that started in your small group and now you believe it is the rules.
Clearly it is not. You have had a VC and a RVC tell you otherwise.
Do what you will. It will have no impact on me or PFS as a whole.
But it is still wrong.
And I am waiting for your cite on allowing downtime days to be banked. After all, if it is not written. It is not a rule.
Yes, you get 108 days total. But you have to complete the downtime activities in blocks of 4 xp and 8 days. Best to think of it as 3 normal adventures and complete the download accordingly.
The reason for doing it blocks of 4xp is because you could level up in the middle and that will change the DCs.
It is in the Guide. But fine, here is the link:Guide on Downtime
So it is pretty clear.
Downtime is spent in Downtime Units of up to 8 days at a time. If a character earns 8 days or fewer of downtime, it is spent in a single unit. If they earn more than 8 days, the character spends units of 8 days, one at a time, until 8 or fewer days remain, then spends the remaining days as a single unit. Multiple different activities can occur in a single downtime unit, but you can only ever roll once for a given activity in any given unit.
No where does it say anything about "banking". But your question was related to crafting. Let's see what the Guide has on that. It is just a few lines lower.
A few other limitations on crafting:
I added emphasis on the 3rd bullet.
Hopefully that helps. The Guide is dry reading, but if you are going to be GMing, you need to understand what is in it.
I hope you will reach out to your players from your AP and help them get the downtime activities taken care and use up the "bank" of days.
The procedure now is that the player handles the downtime activities.
"Banking" is not sanctioned and I would like to who is doing this. It is outside the Guide and needs to stop now.
The GM(s) need to speak to a VC or RVC to get the process correct. And the players need to their downtime taken care of ASAP.
Players have to take care of download between adventures. A character earns days of downtime equal the experienced earned, plus 50% if field commissioned. So 8 or 12.
Downtime activities are done in blocks of 8 days. If rolling for income, roll 8 days, and then 4 day for field commission. For crafting, do setup, then roll for the remaining days, still in 8 day block.
I think there may be confusion on crafting. If you are crafting something and you earn an amount towards the item, at the end of the days of crafting, the character can choose to pay the remaining amount of what is being crafted, thus finishing it. Or they can continue to work on it after the next adventure when new set of downtime days has been earned. So what is being banked is the days of crafting already put into item, not banking days for use later.
It has been a while and I have been unable to find if the issue was finally resolved.
GMs cannot currently download chronicle boons for scenarios they run
Has this been resolved yet? Have a few boons I would like to get but the sytem is not allowing. Specifically the Planar Anomaly from Skitter Warp.
The character I would like to be put into the running has 3 reporting errors. Three of the tables were reported with the wrong faction. I assume if I send an email to the error reporting email that I can get that fixed?
Or should I plan to play the character 3 more times before the deadline?
Also, can a play have more than one character for consideration? I didn't see anything about that but I could have missed it.

Thanks for clarifing.

This does not answer the question fully. I purchased the Hobgoblin boon many months ago. Can I send an email to get back the difference for a character that has been established for a while now?
Right now there is no alternative to gain that checkmark. Maybe Alex will come on and say that the box can be check without playing.
That said, I play a fairly regular ACG game a couple of times a month on Talbetop Simulator.
If interested in playing a game online, send me a message and I can see that I can do for you.
I konw there are a fair number of online tables being played of ACG.
You are not reading the full text of the boon. You included it in your original post.

When you select this boon, it does not apply to your current character. Instead, select one of your Starfinder Society characters with 0 XP. The character can select one additional active boon during any session. A character cannot select multiples of the same boon in this way, and cannot select an ally boon that matches the prerequisite of an already slotted boon. For example, you cannot slot both an Elite Hireling and Professional Hireling with this ability, though you could slot a Digital Imp and a Professional Hireling.
Since all Hirelings boons start with Basic Hireling, all the upgrades have Basis Hireling as their prerequisite.
The intent was to not have two active Hireling Allies.
Welcome. You realize that you posting in forum that is specific to organized play? While many of us also play homegames, here is where we talk about the Starfinder Society.
