To allow your existing customers to enroll in Events through their portals go to Tools > Parent Portal > Settings, and make sure the Event Registration checkbox in the left menu is selected.
Once a parent logs into their portal, they can select the Classes & Events option the in top menu to access the Find Events page.
When opened, the page is automatically filtered for the age ranges of the students in the family's record and to show only events at the family's Location. With this, the only classes displayed are those with min and max age restrictions the students fall into that are located at their Location. The filters can be removed to show all events regardless of Location or the age settings by toggling the Show me events at... button to All Locations or the Show me classes for... button to All Ages.
The event listings can be further filtered and sorted to narrow down the results.
- By date of event
- By event ages
- Alphabetically by location
- By price (event fee)
- Date range
- Price range
There is also an option to view the Events in calendar form.
When the parent selects an event from the list shown, they are taken to the Event Details page where information about the event is displayed. If they wish to enroll a student(s) into the event they will click the Add to Cart button.
The Enroll page is where the parent will select a student, or multiple students, from the list of eligible students shown by selecting the checkbox next to their name.
They will be also be asked to answer the event questions you have defined and can optionally add information they feel is relevant in the Additional Info > Comments section.
Before they can select the event (by clicking Enroll) the parent will be required to agree to the policies you outlined in the Event Type.
A confirmation that the event has been enrolled in the event will display in a pop-up.
At this point, the parent is taken back to the list of events where they can continue to select events to add. A confirmation email is sent to the registrant and also your organization. This email is sent to the Notification Email address designated on the Event Type.
The Portal enrollment is viewable from the Family record > Misc tab > View Registrations button. It is also logged in Reports > All Reports > Parent Portal Log.
