We are hosting a four part speaker series.  Is there a way to set up an event so that people can register for all four days at once, or do I need to set them up as separate events?  (They are in September, November, January and April).  We'd like to be able to give a discount for anyone registering for all four.  Thanks!

Hey @JeanJ956,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us! That is a great question and I would be happy to explain how it will work in one event. So, this can definitely be done in one event and you can also apply a discount if your registrants choose to sign up for all four. What you want to do is when you're setting up your event, fill out the event basics and then jump over to the setting page, this is where you will add all 4 events. I created a mock-up of how you should create the option for your registrants to select and pay for the events they can go to, or choose all four at a discounted rate. You will create these options under "Are You Offering Additional Items" and put in the prices and dates.Events section.png

Please feel free to respond if you have any more questions!

With this setup, how do email confirmations and follow up emails work? Do you then set up 5 different settings/registration sections for each 'item' or is this treated like one event?

Hello @HRAnnie ,

 

With this type of setup the communications would still mainly be for the overall Event-style campaign. To get around this you'd likely have to set up separate lists of people based on their item purchase, and then send 3ge-style emails outside of the event itself to make sure these date-specific emails are being properly distributed.

 

It may be easier to set up multiple event campaigns - one for each "event" you're needing to have available. Then you can insert the events' share links as different options in a regular 3ge-style email "invitation."

 

Our engineers are hard at work on a massive overhaul of the event builder as we move to revitalize it internally. I got your case and information submitted to the engineers. If an when they have an update to being able to set up multiple dates/times, locations, sessions, etc. for an event campaign, they'll make sure to notify you.
