As the year comes to an end, we wanted to finish 2022 off strong by pushing out some noteworthy updates for you to get excited about for next year’s events on the platform. Last week, we announced our year-end promo for onsite events. This week, we have an equally exciting product update introducing our brand new, fully-automated registration system!
If you’ve used our new event website, you may have noticed that the registration system is still the old one that has been powering events over the past eight years (with updates made to it on a regular basis, of course). While the old registration was limited to a set number of predefined categories, and only the website and checkout page styling could be optimized, the new registration system has a completely re-designed look and feel that we can't wait to share with you all. Our product team has been working hard the past several months building out the new registration system - it’s quite a complex system, but we’re finally ready to announce its official launch.
We managed to add major upgrades to the registration system while maintaining the same processes and features that you’ve come to know and love (i.e. the ability to waitlist, create sub-categories, send out automated check-in reminders for people who haven’t completed their orders, automated invoices and welcome emails, etc.) - from a brand new look and countless customization options to unlimited custom categories and a boatload of features and advanced logic, you’ll be sure to notice all the additions to the revamped registration system.
Note: The new registration is only available to those who have the new website enabled. Please keep in mind that for now, you do have the option to test out the new site and switch back at any time.
While the old registration had a simple workflow, the new registration has a sleek and modern look, with plenty of customizable options to allow you to create a registration system that is tailored specifically for your unique event needs.
With the new registration system, you now have the ability to create as many custom categories as you need. This has been a highly requested feature with the old registration (where you were only able to edit predefined categories), and we can’t wait to see what event planners are able to do with unlimited custom categories going forward!
But wait, the improvements aren’t going to cease with the launch of our new registration! We’ll continue working on the registration system and building out unique workflows to help make the lives of our event organizers that much easier. The two things that our product team will be working on will be the ability to add custom forms for each ticket item, as well as the ability to edit registration information once completed (via the attendee portal). If you have any ideas or recommendations on improvements to make, as always, don’t forget to please share them with us via firstname.lastname@example.org!
Also, don't forget - we have an ongoing year-end promo for clients interested in our onsite products and services until December 31, 4:59 PM EST. If you're interested in learning more, be sure to check it out here!
