Do events capture email addresses?

Occasional Organizer

Do events capture email addresses?

Our organization has recently started using the function to 'create events' on a monthly basis and generating emails that require event attendees to register with their email address. What happens to these attendee email addresses? Do they automatically get added to our member list - or do we need to manually add addresses as new people register to join our events?

Re: Do events capture email addresses?



An event registrant will not be added to your email list because they have not opted in to receive emails from you.


You can add a Join My Mailing List box to your event.


To allow or prevent registrants to opt-in to future emails from you:

  1. After logging into Constant Contact, click Events > My Events.
  2. Create a new event or click on the name of the published event.
  3. Click "Click "Edit event basics".
  4. Find the section titled Optional features.
  5. Make sure that "Add a checkbox to my registration form to allow registrants to join my contact list" is checked. To turn off this feature, just un-check the box.
  6. If you choose, type a label that will be displayed on the registration form. It auto-populates to "Yes, I would like to receive your email newsletters".
  7. Choose a list that you want the registrants to join.
    Note: The list must appear on your Join My Mailing List Form and be selected in your list properties or it will not appear in the drop-down menu.
  8. Click Save & Finish.

A checkbox will now appear on the registration form.


I hope this helps,
