If you are hosting an event where you would like to identify prospective attendees, and potentially track attendance at the event, you can capture this with a special question type on the Sporty Registration forms. You can add a single event to a form, or multiple events based on your requirements.
To get started, create a new registration form, or edit an existing registration form.
Click Add question.
Select Custom field, and then Event, and click Save.
Now, update the name of the event, and provide a date and time.
If you are only including one event on this registration form, you can click Save Form. Alternatively, repeat this step to add additional events.
When people view your form, they will be able to select which event/s they wish to attend.
If you want people to automatically register for an event, you can check the 'Auto-Select' option for the field. This ensures everyone who registers is set to attend by default. Those who still do not wish to attend can still uncheck the checkbox.
Should you wish to restrict the number of attendees to an event, a Max attendees can be set. This will allow the first X registrations to attend the event. The field will be locked for all subsequent registrations.
A waitlist can be enabled when applying these attendee limitations. Simply check the box next to where you set the max attendees & all registrants who want to attend a filled event will be added to the waitlist. Registration confirmation emails (if enabled) will allow individuals to confirm they have been added to a waitlist.
As people register to your event, their registration record will appear in the form database. People that have selected an event to attend can be viewed by clicking the checkbox icon on the form.
This opens an Event Attendees modal displaying attendees expected. The screen shots below show the mobile view.
It is then easy to tick the checkbox to record attendees. This makes it quick and easy to record attendance on the go, for example when at a training session out on the pitch.
At any stage, the database of people can be exported into excel to filter/sort.
