New feature: Invitations

2013-08-27
This weekend we silently launched a new feature: invitations! Until now, you have been able to collect event registrations to your event either by giving users explicit access to your event/guest lists by creating an user account for them or by putting your event publicly on facebook or your website. Now there is a way to create a link that you then can send to your invitees in any way you want that they can use to sign up.

How do I do this? Just follow these steps:

  1. Create/select an event in back-office
  2. Select the "Invitations" tab
  3. Create an invitation. Enter a name to make it easier for you to keep track of your invitations. This will only be visible to you, so call it "My VIP invitation" or whatever
  4. Select which guest lists you want to invite your guests to, and enter limits if you wish there to only be a certain number of tickets available
  5. Check the checkboxes next to the Fields if you want your guests to enter any other information than just their names. If you want a field to be required, just check the "required" checkbox to the right of the field. If you want to add a field that does not exist in the list, just click the "Add field" button and enter the name of the field you want to add
  6. If you are using our facebook or web app and want this invitation to be visible there, check the "publicly visible" checkbox. Only one invitation per event can be publicly visible so if you check this and there is another one with this checked already, this will uncheck the old invitation
  7. Once you have saved the invitation, the URL to it will appear in the bottom of the form. Send this to your guests so that they can sign up!

If you have any questions about this new feature, feel free to use our online chat or e-mail us at info@attendium.com and we will do our best to help you!
