Create Your First Online Event Registration Form

Before you create your first online event registration, be sure to set the configuration options for your account (see Account Configuration).

Create Your Event

To create your event, click on "Events" on the top menu and click "Add an Event".  Give the event a name and optional description.  Choose the maximum number of people that can attend for a given registration.  If you have setup a custom style, you may select one.  See Styles to learn more about custom styles.  Choose a start and end date/time.  Users with the Administrator or Event Authorizer role will also be able to authorize the event.

Online registrations for a given event are only allowed if the current date/time is between the event start and end AND the event is authorized.

You can choose to enable an Attendee List.  An Attendee List enables you to publish a listing of those attending the event.  See Attendee List for more details.

You can choose to enable Attendee Fields.  Attendee Fields are used to collect information about each attendee.  These fields are replicated for each attendee.  See Attendee Fields for more details.

You may also setup sharing to Facebook.  Consult Sharing on Facebook for more details. 

Setup Your Registration / Ticket Types

Nearly all events should have a registration / ticket type.  Fields of type "Registration" allow you to track how many people are coming to an event and optionally let you charge a fee for attending.  See Registration & Ticket Types for more detail.

To add a Registration Type, on the form builder under "Add Registration Fields" click the "Registration" button.

Add / Modify Your Fields

Under the "Add Registration Fields" area, click the buttons to add new fields.  Consult Field Types for more information about each type.  Hovering over field areas causes modification icons to appear that allow you to move, edit, or delete fields.  Editing a field enables you to change its name, label, default value, a hint, whether to hide it, whether to require it and how it is styled.  Certain fields have additional options as well.

Modify Your Headers & Footers

Consult Headers & Footers on how to do this.

Modify Your Email Confirmation Settings

Consult Email Confirmations on how to do this.

Optionally, Setup Field Rules

Field Rules allow you to conditionally hide or show fields on your form.  For more detail, see Field Rules.

Your Form Is Ready!

As long as the current date / time is between the events start and stop date / time and the event is authorized, your event is ready to accept new registrations.  To view your form, click on the view icon (looks like a document) next to any event on the Events screen.  If you want to learn how to embed your form in your own web pages, see Embedding Forms In Your Website.
