Creating Two-Day Events

Occasional Contributor

Creating Two-Day Events

When I create an event that lasts 2+ days, I'm not allowed to enter a daily end time, which would be populated in the .ics file and alongside the registration form. For example, I frequently offer a two-day training from 9am-4pm on Thursday and 9am-3:30pm on Friday. When participants register, it appears that the training lasts from Thursday at 9am until Friday at 3:30pm. This creates obvious confusion, in addition to folks assuming they get out at 3:30pm on Thursday (which I then have to address in subsequent direct email messages). Any idea if this is an easy fix to get on the radar?

 

Thanks!

Re: Creating Two-Day Events

Hi Heather!

 

Unfortunately, we do not have a multi-day setup in the Event Marketing program as of yet that will allow for the ics file to populate as you need, but I did pass your feedback on to our developers.  

 

But if you want to set up your Event to show that you have 2 distinct days, you can follow these instructions by using the Pay for Items feature.

 

What you want to do is to go to your Event > click Edit Event Information. Then click Edit event settings.

 

What you want to do is set up a fee for the full length of the Event.  Then where it says "Are you offering additional items?" click the bubble for Yes, I'm offering items.

 

Here you can set up information for each day, how many seats are available, and if there is a fee for each of those. (I wouldn't do a fee here as some people may sign up incorrectly, so I would just keep these free).

 

Thanks for your great suggestion!

Re: Creating Two-Day Events

The format for multi session events definitely leaves much to be desired. I would love to be able to edit registration for individual session, but you can't edit items sold.  What is there around the corner that can help with this?

Hi,

 

We always have new features coming and while I have nothing specific about multi day events, I will pass on your feedback to our Event Marketing team.

 

Thanks,

Re: Creating Two-Day Events

I appreciate that. Could you also ask for multi-session functionality.  I have 8 different breakout sessions every hour and selling each one as a separate item when they don't change the overall price is more than a little confusing.

 

Thanks!

Re: Creating Two-Day Events

Hi.,

 

I'd be happy to request this.

 

So I'm clear, you want to be able to have multiple available times for your event but you want to make it less cluttered, correct?

 

Thanks,

Jarrad

Re: Creating Two-Day Events

Thanks for responding so quickly. What I am looking for is the abilit to:

1. register more than one person per email adress(ie. mom wants to register 3 kids)

2. Have multiple time slots for breakout sessions

3. Have multiple options within those time slots

4. The ability to manage the registrations for each option rather than just the registrants information.(ie. Move registrant from class A at 9:00 to class B at 9:00 or from class A at 9:00 to class A at 10:00

 

I love the fact that you are developing this program. Your system is so easy to use and customers are confident with your name. I would be thrilled to beta any new changes coming with this program.

 

Thanks!

Re: Creating Two-Day Events

Hi,

 

Thanks for clarifying. I'll pass on your feedback.

 

In the meantime, here are some workarounds which may help:

 

1 - You do have the ability for the registrant to bring a guest. To do so, follow these steps.

 

2 - We have an option to have items for sale. You could use this feature to have your breakout sessions. Check out this FAQ for more info.

 

3 - You could use the items for sale feature again to do this.

 

4 - This is a great idea!

 

I hope this workarounds help and thanks again for the feedback!
