What are 'Bookable Sessions'?
NOTE: THIS FEATURE IS ONLY AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST, PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WISH THIS FEATURE TO BE ENABLED FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION.
The 'Bookable Sessions' feature allows you to set field choices in your event registration form as bookable sessions, with the ability to set a slot 'capacity' per session choice if required. You can also use this feature in conjunction with the 'Fee Calculator', allowing you to calculate revenue for activities and limit the capacity so you don't end up overbooking!
By entering the Bookable Sessions area (either from the Event Dashboard or the 'Sessions' option on the top of the page), you can begin creating a new session.
Creating a new 'Bookable Session'
Upon landing in this area, you see an index of any current sessions created for your event (with the options to 'View', 'Edit' or 'Delete'), and the option to create a 'New Session' at the top right of the page.
Selecting this option will take you to the 'New Session' form - the only requirements at this stage are that you provide a name and a brief description for your session. Once you click the 'Create Bookable Session' option, you will be returned to the 'Bookable Sessions' index - your new session will now be available to be assigned to field choices in your event registration form!
Editing Bookable Sessions
To edit an existing 'Bookable Session', simply click the 'Edit' button as indicated in the screenshot above. Selecting this will take you to the 'Edit' form, where you can change the name and description of your session as you see fit. This can be done prior to and after registrations have been accepted by your event in getregistered®.
To delete a session, click on the red 'Delete' button displayed adjacent to the session you wish to remove. Deleting a session will remove any links to it within your event registration form.
