Open registration for an event

  1. Create a new Event/Program and complete all fields that you would normally fill in for an event.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the Create Event/Program screen so that you can see the Registration drop-down menu.
  3. Select the appropriate registration type from the Registration drop-down menu.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click the Manage Registrations tab, then click Settings.
  6. Review/change the preset settings.
    1. To set a capacity limit, in the Capacity field enter a number >0. (The default capacity is set to 0 for no limit.)
      Under Capacity enter a number greater than zero.
    2. To optionally enable a wait list, set a capacity limit, then scroll down and check "Enable wait list." Optionally, enter a number >0 for Wait list capacity.
  7. Tips:
    1. Beware of bugs with Capacity and Wait List.
    2. Set a close date. (Registration will remain open after the event is past, unless you set a close date.)
    3. Learn more about Cron to understand the timing of email reminder mailings.
    4. Under Additional Settings, leave all roles unchecked to allow anonymous users (patrons) to self-register.
  8. Scroll to the bottom and click Save Settings.
