For all public events and for many private events you need some way for participants to register. Workshop Butler supports two options for registration: built-in registration pages and external ones. Start by clicking Events in the top menu -> Add Event button and go to the Misc section.
Built-in registration page
If you use a built-in registration page, all attendees automatically appear in Workshop Butler after they have registered for your event. There are several ways potential attendees could fill in a registration form:
- on a built-in event page which is generated by default (see an example);
- on your website through WIDGET;
- on the website of your certification brand (see an example).
Using a built-in registration page is a preferable way as it opens the full potential of Workshop Butler to you. You can customise it to your needs by following the instructions in this article.
Registration page for private events
Registration pages for private events are different from the ones for public events. When you run a public event, you expect people to register one by one. However, with private events, you usually have a coordinator on a client’s side who provides you with a list of attendees. While you can import this list, a better approach is to send a link to the registration form.
You can set the Private/Public event's type in the Add event menu -> Type & Contact section.
A registration form for a private event allows registering many attendees at once by filling out 3 fields.
External registration page
Sometimes you cannot process the registrations on your own. For example, you work with a training company which sells the event for you and uses its own software. In this case, they have their own registration page. Workshop Butler supports this scenario with an External Registration Page option.
When you set a custom URL, you still promote the event on your website and the website of a certification brand. However, the registration button links to the registration page on the training company's website.
Important note: in case you are using an external registration page, information about attendees who registered via it, will not be reflected in Workshop Butler.
