Online Registration Time-Saver: Auto-Numbering
September 14, 2011 § Leave a comment
As an event manager, you’re always looking for ways to save time managing the online registration process. Have you checked out our auto-numbering tool? Found in the More Tools section of your Form Menu, auto-numbering, as its name indicates, auto-assigns numbers or codes to each registration. You can upload a list of numbers or codes to be assigned, or they can be assigned sequentially starting with any number you designate. The numbers or codes you assign will display on the registrants’ screen and email confirmations.
Many clients already have discovered the benefits of automatically assigning numbers or codes during the online registration process. “As the nation’s largest half-marathon, the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon has more than 35,000 participants,” explained Margaret Hermanek, Ticketing and Customer Relations Coordinator for the 500 Festival. “Without auto-numbering through individual registrations, there would be a lot of room for error on our end, not to mention the amount of time it would take to assign them all. The system also allows us to set up bib ranges however we’d like and to differentiate between events.”
