Back to School week also marks the return of Professional Organizations’ events after the summer break. That’s why our programmers skipped summer vacation and added a ton of great features to the T5 Event Management Module. I have been absolutely loving how much easier it is to create, manage, and update events in Tendenci 5.0 compared to Tendenci 4.0.
Check out some of the ways we’ve made it quick and easy to create and manage your organization’s Fall Event Calendar using Tendenci software.
With Tendenci’s New Single Page Event Form – It Takes Just 2-Clicks to Create an Event
We made our “Add an Event” form just ONE single page allowing you to create each new event from your website without having to sort through multiple page loads. We made it easier to add new events inside the Admin navigation bar and now you can add a new event from any page on your website. Click to add a new event, fill out the event details and then click to create the event – it’s that easy!
1 Page – More Event Options
We may have saved you some pages when creating your events – we didn’t skimp on the features and that page is fully loaded with customizable fields and event options to let you create and price your events in virtually any way you can imagine. Here are just a few of the changes we made in Tendenci 5.0 compared to T4.
* Add multiple speakers to your event summary.
Simply click to add another speaker while you are creating the event, and without ever leaving the page – a new speaker box is created instantly. After you add the new speaker’s details in, just click to add another speaker and another speaker box is revealed. Repeat until you’ve added your entire panel without ever leaving the event form.
*Automatic addition of Google maps to help show your guests how to get to your event.
Just fill in your event’s address on the event form and when you save it, Tendenci will automatically add a Google map to your event summary. Registrants can view the venue on a map, click to get directions from their location, and all the cool extra map functions that Google Maps includes like street views and searching for nearby places.
*Add multiple ticket prices based on membership types.
Tendenci Events lets you set a different price for members than non-members, and you can segment your ticket prices by membership types, students, and corporate levels to create as many different ticket prices as you want.
*We listened to your requests and have added bundled ticket packages.
Tendenci now has the ability for you to sell Ticket Bundles for special group events like a Golf Tournament or Table Sponsorships. You decide how much the bundled package costs AND how many tickets are in the bundle. And you can create as many different ticket bundles as you need for your event – in the same single page event form!
Tendenci 5.0 includes the ability to create custom discount codes for events that allow you to offer special promotional discounts. Have a little fun creating unique discount code names, then easily track where your registrants are hearing about your event and signing up by tracking registration based on discount codes used.
*Manage the entire registration and payment process on your website with our payment integration options.
Tendenci integrates with Authorize.Net and FirstData credit card merchant services. Your guests can register and pay on your website event calendar.
Your Website Guests Will Love How Easy it is to Register for Events Too!
We know that creating the event online is only one part of event management and that’s why we included tons of new features in Tendenci for administering the event after you’ve created it.
These features will save you time and frustration before, during and after your event.
*New Reporting tools for you.
We included event reporting tools that allow you to easily find invoices, see who has paid and who hasn’t, calculate totals and more.
*Communicate with your event registrants about any changes or announcements via email quickly with our event email tool.
You can select all registrants, paid registrants, or unpaid registrants and immediately send an email update for your event to your attendees.
These are just some of the new features that Tendenci 5.0 includes for managing events. If you want to know more, then check-out our upcoming Event Management with Tendenci 5.0 Free Webinar or just Contact Us to schedule a demo of all of Tendenci 5.0’s capabilities.
