Difference between confirmed and unconfirmed events
When you add a new workshop, there is a chance it won’t take place. The most frequent reason for it is a lack of attendees. In many cases, trainers have a policy that a workshop is on if there are more than 6-10 participants, and it could be cancelled or postponed two weeks prior to the start date. This state is called unconfirmed and it’s a default one.
When you realise that you’re ready to run a workshop, you can change its state to confirmed.
The system handles confirmed and unconfirmed events differently. For a confirmed event:
- the event reminder is sent to registered attendees
- follow-ups and post-event emails are active
- statistics on evaluations is visible
- a generation of certificates is active if it’s possible to create certificates for the event
- you get an invoice after the event ends if the event is a licensed one (you have to pay a fee for it)
None of the above is true for unconfirmed events.
A confirmed state is passed through API so you can show on your website if the event is confirmed or not.
