Complimentary registrations (and special prices)

Step1: Set up a complimentary or special prices in your event

We recommend that you read the section on "How event pricing works" first.

In your event pricing, use the "Multiple Prices" option and select "Complimentary" as one of the options.  Be careful that you have also set a non-member price. This will ensure that no-one else will be able to select the complimentary price.

If you want to give someone a special price that is not zero, you can also choose the "For Admin Use" option.

 

When you set the prices, put zero against the complimentary price. If you are using the "For Admin Use" price, assign that price too.

 

Step 2: Navigate to the event management section

Complimentary registrations are set up in the   Event Manager 

You can find the Event Manager from your chapter's event page.  It will appear at the top left when you are logged in as an administrator

  

 

  

Step 3: Register someone as a Comp or with a special price

First, make sure you have followed the directions on the left

1. To include complimentary registration in your event pricing

2. To navigate to the Event Manager.

Once you are at the Event Manager page, find the event you want to register someone for and use the drop-down on the right to find "Special"

 

 Use the green button at the right to add a registrant, and then search.

 

Once you have found the contact you want, select "Complimentary" from the drop-down list.  (You must have already included a complimentary price in your event setup - see directions on the left).

If you are assigning a Special Price, just select the "Admin only" price instead.  At this stage you could assign any price that exists in your event setup to this individual, so you can override the price that the system assigns.

IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOU CLICK "SAVE" AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE, AND AFTERWARD CHECK THAT THE RIGHT CLASS WAS ASSIGNED

 

Now you can either register the individual yourself, or they can register themselves, using the usual registration process.
