Enabling Event Vanity URLS
With our vanity URLs, you can now easily define a friendly URL for your event and event locations.
NOTE: Before you are able to view the Page Alias fields, you will need to make sure that the following option is enabled in your Event Settings.
Step 1 From the administrator console, search for the event.
Step 2 From the left menu options, click Event Summary and then click Edit Information.
Step 3 In the Page Alias field enter the value for your event vanity URL. Please note that if you not have the Vanity URL setting enabled in your Event Settings, you will not see the field for Page Alias
Step 4 Click Submit
Enabling a Location Vanity URL
In addition to the event URL you can also define a vanity URL for each location.
Step 1 From the administrator console, go to the event.
Step 2 From the left menu options, click Locations and then select the location.
Step 3 Click Edit Information.
Step 4 In the Page Alias field enter the value for your location vanity URL.
Step 4 Click Submit
Now that you have defined the vanity URLs for your event and its locations you can quickly access them in theImportant Links (Event Summary-> Important Links) section.
There is more!
We have also made easy links to the registration, donation and search pages. Once you have defined your event vanity URL, you can simply add a slash followed by the words Register, Search or Donate. See the examples below.
Same applies for French events:
Note: The words register, search and donate cannot be customized.
Registrants Covering Processing Fees
Similar to the current functionality of allowing Donors to cover their processing fees, we have added the same ability for Registrants. You can now enable the option to allow Registrants to cover their processing fees on the whole transaction. This means they can have a registration fee, self sponsor donation and purchase item and the registrant will have the option to cover the processing fees for the entire amount.
To set this up on an Event/Campaign or Peer-to-Peer Event:
- Access the Admin Console
- Select the Event you wish to edit
- Click “Event Settings
- Select “Registrations” in the “Allow user to cover the processing fee” area in “General”
- Choose you desired amount based on percentage and/or fixed amount
- Click “Submit” to save your changes
During Registration the User will see an option to cover the processing fees and the total fees charged will be displayed.
After the Transaction is made the Processing Fees will appear in the Snapshot and Reconciliation Reports.
