Creating Multi-Session Events Just Got Easier

Terry Ibele 20 October 2015 2 comments

Recurring EventsEvents are a major driver of engagement for your members and chances are you have some events with multiple sessions: a four day training course, a weekly webinar, or a monthly board meeting.


Scheduling each instance of a multi-session event can be a pain! 


Previously, with Wild Apricot you had to manually create each instance of a multi-session event and members had to register for every occurrence. Many of you requested a feature to change the way this is done.

Now you can set up multi-session events in just 3 steps!

 
Incorporated in the launch of Wild Apricot Version 5.6 was a new event feature that allowed the creation of multi-session events with a single registration all at once! Here’s how it's done:

1. Edit an existing event, or create a new event. Scroll down and click “Add repeating sessions”

2. Enter the details of how and when you want your sessions to repeat

3. Click “Add”

Here’s an example of what a multi-session event might look like

 (if you need to edit any event sessions, simply click “Edit sessions”, which brings up the below pop-up)

That’s it! Log into your Admin view and give it a try yourself!

    Good to see. Now why don't you make some real progress and allow recurring events that allow separate registration for each event date. Now that would be progressive and remove heaps of frustration for those that operate in such an environment.

    Hi Arthur!

    Thanks for writing and for your feedback. I'm sorry that you're experiencing some frustration with this. This feature only means to cover single registration, multi-session events.

    We are also aware of the need for a recurring events feature, which is a bit more complex. You can add your support for this feature by visiting our Wishlist Forum: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/9056287-recurring-events-scenario-2-separate-registratio

    We constantly strive to bring our customers the best experience, so your feedback is much appreciated. I've shared it with the team. Take care!
