Kick off your event construction by dialing in the first 4, key tools in the Event Basics section of the Event Builder. Read on for details on each.
BASIC EVENT INFORMATION
EVENT TITLE & HOST
Title your event! You can also designate a custom home name for your event....notice how the name of your organization displays at the top left of your event homepage? If you wanted to alter the name of your organization (i.e. the host), you can input a Custom Home Name.
DATE & TIME
Input the date and time of your event. It's that easy. Really.
ACCESS & LIMITS
Setup an attendee limit for you overall event. Our system makes sure to shut down your registration when you get within 10 registrants of your overall limit. This keeps you safe from over-booking and you can decide what you'd like to do with the remaining 10 slots.
Also, notice that link called Advanced Computation Limit right below the box to enter the attendee limit? Click it. A modal will appear (scroll up if you don't immediately see it) that explains the Advanced Limit Calculation. At the bottom left of that modal will be a checkbox that says Use Modified Count. Check the box to use the Advanced Computation Method.....BUT WHAT IS THAT??
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 COUNTS as an attendee, or full registration. The Advanced Computation Method allows for that calculation, by treating registration items as actual registrants. Turning this on in the right instance ensures you don't oversell!
By default, all event sites are open for viewing (anyone with the url can view it) and registration. You can optionally set your event to Private or Invitational. This means the only registrants permitted to enter registration are those that are on your invitation list. You can also restrict your event site & registration (as a by-product of blocking your site) using an Access Code. Type in the code, confirm and any visitor will need that code to access your registration website.
In this section, you can create an alternate language for registrants to display your site in. Use the dropdown to Create New Language - you will be taken to the Language Builder. You will need to use this tool to input the alternate language.
A few other event-wide options exist in this sub-section as well.
