Registration types

Registration types
Next, you can specify whether the registration is only accessible to a closed subscriber group, or whether you want a public registration where new subscribers register with their name, etc.:
  • None: only participants can register, which you have created in Contacts (see creating and importing contacts). You usually send an invitation email with which you can register.
  • Input data, then verify email: the contact data (first and last name, email, ...) are recorded on the public website. The participant then receives an email whose text can be specified under 'Event Dashboard -> Emails -> Confirmation Registration'. In the emaail you can put a registration button, which takes you to the event website. This process corresponds to an opt-in procedure, since the participant can only log on if he has entered a valid email address and clicks on the button. The disadvantage of this procedure is that they lose part of the participants who do not understand that they have to click on a registration button again after the registration.
  • Input data, then display web page: the contact data (first and last name, email, ...) are recorded on the public website. Afterwards the participant reaches the event website, where he can inform himself about the event and can register via the registration button. Caution: With this process they run the risk that participants specify incorrect e-mail addresses and are thus exposed to a data security and legal risk. E.g. If someone specifies a real email from another person, that person receives all yve emails without having agreed to, which is legally not allowed.
  • Show questionnaire, then display the event website: the contact data (first and last name, email, ...) are recorded on the public website. In addition, the questionnaire is displayed, in which you can request participation and further questions. This process has the least effort for the participants. Caution: With this process they run the risk that participants specify incorrect e-mail addresses and are thus exposed to a data security and legal risk. E.g. If someone specifies a real email from another person, that person receives all yve emails without having agreed to what is legally not allowed. In addition, the participant has to decide before he can get information on the event website.
  • Display registration closed text, do not allow registration: The text for 'registration closed' is displayed and no further public registrations are allowed. The existing participants can continue to answer the questionnaire.
Public registrations are visible to search engines. You can make a public registration with 'Public website can only be seen with secure token.', visible only for a closed group of persons. You can only access the registration page if you know a password for the registration. This password applies to the whole registration and can also be added to the URL.

Public and closed registration at the same time
You can also start a public and closed registration in an event at the same time.
 
Caution: a participant that you have already created as a contact can no longer register via the public registration, since yve prevents duplicates. Instead, he will be redirected to the login page, where he must log in with his login name and password. If he does not know this, he can send his login link to his email address via the button 'Send login link'.
 
If the existing contact is not yet assigned to the event, it will automatically be assigned as a participant for the event. This assignment triggers the registration email, if it is activated. If the contact is already assigned to the event as a participant, he will not receive a registration email. For registration type 'record questions, then show event website' no registration email will be sent.
 
In the case of an existing contact, the data (contact data and questionnaire) are not automatically taken over by the registration, but the questionnaire must be filled out again after the login.
