Whether you're wanting to set up a new category or update a new category, find out how here!
Registration categories are simply the categories from which your registrants will choose what to register for. Select what you need assistance with from the bullet list below:
How to get there
You can get to them from your event dashboard go to configuration then select "registration categories" as shown below:
Set up a new category
To create a new category, select the green button "add new category":
Then complete all the needed (highlighted in red) information in the pop-up window:
Pro tip: If you already create another category on your event with similar specs, you can reuse the setup for your new category using the "copy existing registration category" option - that will pre-fill your setup so you only have to change what's needed
Category Name: This is the name registrants will see when selecting the appropriate categories to participate in.
Category Capacity: The individual category capacity. If your Event / Club capacity is less than what you specify here the Event / Club capacity takes effect.
Description: A brief description of the category or any important notices that pertain to it.
Restricted by age: The category will show up only for people between the min and max age.
Restricted by gender: The category will show up only for people of a specific gender
Price: The value amount you would like to input.
Pricing Name: For internal use, this does not show to any participants only organizers and Interpodia staff. The field auto-fill when you enter the category name and the price
Adding a Discount / Early Bird:
Note: The discounts are tied to a price and NOT the registration category. If you select a price is linked to different registration categories these discounts WILL APPLY to them.
By Date / Early Bird: These are discounts that are triggered by date or more commonly known as early birds.
- Discount name: That will show up on the receipt
- Amount: In dollars or in percentage depending of what you select on the discount type
- Discount type:
- Date from and to: The time is based on the time zone of your event
By Registration Quantity: These discounts are normally reserved for series registrations, but can be for registrations that have multiple dates that allow participation. Normally Interpodia uses these for a 'class structure' that wants a discount for registering for more than one session.
