METHODS: WHO CAN REGISTER?
The most straightforward path in registration is when the person at the keyboard is the one registering for the event. The Eventsquid system allows you to offer other methods to allow the person at the keyboard to register someone else for the event.
There are two offered types you can enable to let someone register someone else:
1) THIRD PARTY REGISTRATION
Third-Party registration allows a person at the keyboard to register someone for an event using the email of the person being registered. This methodology is very commonly used by an assistant registering one or more people from their team.
Upon completion of a Third-Party registration, the person being registered will have their own account and be able to access your registration site themselves (for virtual events and the like). The registered person will be able to manage their registration going forward.
NOTE: The person at the keyboard must be logged into their own account first in order to execute Third Party Registration on behalf of someone else.
2) SUB-ACCOUNT REGISTRATION METHOD
Sub-Account is a very specialized registration method and should only be used for registrants who will not be
1) required to use any functions that require account or login namely VEO, mobile website, and/or;
2) receive communications through Eventsquid (email, sms)
Sub-account registration is typically used in the case of a parent registering a minor. A sub-account is merely a name under an existing account.
There are also other instances in which you may want to use sub-account registration (besides registering a minor). For example:
- An exhibitor team needs a quick an easy way to register a team of representatives for the event;
- You would rather not require that each individual representative submit an email address and separate registration form for themself;
- Instead, sub-account registration allows the team leaders / booth managers to easily submit registrations on behalf of all representatives without creating an account for each rep
However, the caveat to activating sub-account registration is that the sub-accounts won't be accessible via email. That means all communications and confirmations/invoices will go to the master account and not the actual registrant. If your event requires that each registrant submit an email address, DO NOT activate Sub-Account registration.
NOTE: Guest Registration is another good tool for capturing team registrations. Take a look at our Guest Setup help article, Full Guest Registration tutorial video and Simple Guest Registration tutorial video.
REGISTERING USING THE ALTERNATIVE REG METHODS
Upon first entering registration, the user needs to pick the method by which they plan to register either themselves or someone else. Here's a look at the "methods page" when both types of alternative registration methods (Sub-Account and Third Party) are activated:
As you can see in the screenshot above, Sub-Account Registration allows a user to register someone else under their own (master) email address. Third Party Registration allows a user to register someone else using that person's email address.
When alternative methods of registration are activated, the person at the keyboard will see an ADD ANOTHER REGISTRANT button when they reach the checkout page. Clicking this will allow the user to loop back around to the beginning of the registration process so they can add another registrant.
