Send an invite to your event


This tutorial will explain how to send an invite for an event you have created. 


Grabbing the URL for your online registration page

 

 

  • Each event comes with its own online registration web page that allows your congregation to easily register for an event online. It works great on mobile, tablet, or desktop.

  • You don't have to use the online registration page if you don't want to and can instead register people for an event manually. But if you would like to use the online registration page, keep reading.

  • Each event has a unique registration page with a unique URL. 

  • To get this URL open the Events module main page, and click on the More button next to your event and then select Online reg. page (No printing). This will open the registration page for that event. 

 

  • At the top of your browser click the URL box and copy that link to your clipboard.
     

  • If you would like people to use your online registration page then this is the link you need to paste into any invitations you send.

 

Option 1 for sending an invite: use the Messaging module

 
  • The Messaging module allows you to send messages to specific segments of people associated with an event.

  • Open the Messaging module from the main menu: Communication >>  Messaging

  • From the drop-down list select Events and click Next.

  • Enter the name of your event in the Choose event box.

  • Select who you would like to message from the Event Audience drop-down.

  • If you are sending an invite for the very first time, select All those who have not responded. By default, this includes all the people who match the invitation restrictions you specified when creating the event. So if you have chosen to only invite small group leaders, then the message will go to them only. 
    Note: As soon as people start to register (i.e to respond to your invite), the list of people who will be included in 'All those who have not responded' will decrease.

  • Follow the on-screen prompts until you get to the message composing screen.

  • Paste your online registration page link into your message, type a little message, and click send.

 


Option 2 for sending an invite: use the Events module

 

  • To send an invite from the Events module begin by clicking the Registrants button next to your event.

  • Next, click the Message Everyone button and select Who has not responded.

 

 

  • By default 'All who have not responded' includes all the people who match the invitation restrictions you specified when creating the event. So if you have chosen to only invite small group leaders, then the message will go to them only. 
    Note: As soon as people start to register (i.e to respond to your invite), the list of people who will be included in 'All those who have not responded' will decrease.

  • This will open the Messaging module.

  • Compose your message, paste in your online registration page link, and click Send.
