I am working on setting up an event using Event Espresso as I have for several years now, but I cannot recreate what I did last year and am getting frightened that I cannot get the website finished in time for our scheduled May website reopening.
I am having some medical difficulties that make it hard for me to recall some information and I need someone to walk/guide me through what I need to do to decide and figure out how to set up my registration forms properly. I believe I need someone to either suggest and guide me to do the work or to go in and do the form setups for me.
Here’s the background ….
Several years ago, we created an event that is a special day for beauty school students and teachers. It’s called SUPERSUNDAY and it has two aspects to the day that require registration.
• Morning and afternoon teacher classes
Teachers go to the http://www.supercutsla.com website to register their school for these activities.
When teachers register, there is most often one teacher who makes reservations for all the teachers at that beauty school, although some do occasionally register separately.
THE TEACHER CLASSES ARE FREE.
Teacher class registrations have several choices.
• Morning and afternoon class (10-12:30 AM, and 1:30-4:00 PM)
A confirmation email is sent confirming their registrations and names
PHOTO COMPETITION REGISTRATIONS
These are just a bit more complex.
The registering teacher comes to the website to register their school to participate in the photo contest. There is a $90 charge for that.
A confirmation email is sent confirming their registrations and the student’s names
Is there someone I can speak with soon? Thanks for any assistance.
While we do not offer phone support, we can offer guidance and assistance here.
With regards to re-creating the older events, are you able to go in and edit those? If so then what you could do is duplicate the event (there’s a “Duplicate Event” button just below the “Quick Overview” heading on the page where you edit the event).
Then, after duplicating the event, you can change the dates/prices, description with updated information. The questions/registration forms will work the same as they did for the previous event.
Thank you, Josh. I am looking into that. Much appreciate your getting back to me.
Whilst we are more than happy to walk through any questions you may have, I often find it easier to view my previous questions and work from there first so I’m just checking you are aware that you can view your previous threads within your account page here:
Scroll down a little and on the left you should see your previous threads/posts. Those may help work through with wherever you are up to currently but again if you do have any questions or those simply just don’t help just let us know.
I saw that your previous posts were all regarding EE3, so if you are still using that then to view your previous events you go to Event Espresso -> Event Overview.
Set the ‘status filter’ to ‘ALL (Active / Inactive)’
Set the number of database rows to pull at once (50/100 should be fine)
You should then see your previous events and be able to find the previous one from above.
And thank you, Tony. There are many ‘good to knows’ that can only be learned through use. Thank you for the info, Tony.
