The EVENT BASICS tab is a great place to begin your event build process.
Continue reading below for a quick explanation on the different options and tools within the BASIC EVENT INFORMATION tool within this section tab.
BASIC EVENT INFORMATION
Customize the title of your event. You can also designate an abbreviated version of your event title as well as an alternative name of your organization (which appears on the event homepage and in the confirmation email).
DATE & TIME
Set the start/end date/time of your event. You can also designate the time zone that should appear on the homepage of your event.
The system will allow you to set a limit on the overall number of registrants that are allowed to register for your event. By default, every unique registration is counted against this limit that you set.
However, you may also calibrate your event to make a headcount calculation based on the number of Registration Items that are selected during registration. You can activate this functionality by enabling the Advanced Computation Method.
The Advanced Computation Method comes in handy when your event registrations don't necessarily correlate directly to head count. For example, let's say your registration form allows the purchase of multiple registration tickets. In this case, you have 1 attendee, but several actual registrations (since they bought tickets for friends & family). You need a way to tell the system that each of those tickets should be counted as an attendee.
- The Advanced Computation Method is best utilized when your event only contains one Registration Item. This item allows users to purchase/select a quantity of greater than 1.
REGISTRATION & EVENT ACCESS
By default, all event sites are open for viewing (anyone with the url can view it) and registration. The system gives you the option to lock access to your registration form and/or event website.
- Restrict Registration Access: You can restrict access to the registration form in two ways
- Based on an access code that you create
- Based on an invitation list that you create in the Event Builder
- Restrict Event Site Access: You can restrict access to the event website with an access code that you create
In this section of the page, you'll find two very important settings:
- DISABLE REGISTRATION: You can completely remove the option to register for your event. This is quite useful when you'd like to simply use your event website for informational purposes and remove any indication of registration from the Event Website
- FREE EVENT: Using the Pricing & Payment Tools dropdown, you can set an event to 100%. This removes any indication of pricing/payment from the event
