New Registration System Features July 2012
Event registration has always been more than simply taking names and counting tickets – that’s why the ePly Development Team has been hard at work, adding new features and functionality to our online registration software package.
ePly clients can now upload a list of contacts and send out email invitations to events from within the ePly system.
When you login, you will see a new tab in the upper right called Contacts that will take you to the contact and email management area. From here you can upload contacts, create email templates and track the emails that you send.
You have access to set up and test the emails and related features, but before you can actually send out your first email campaign, you will need to contact ePly to enable sending on your account.
Many event stakeholders who aren’t necessarily authorized to modify your carefully set parameters require access to reporting and other event information. Rather than constantly creating reports, you can now create custom roles for your stakeholders. The custom roles feature allows you to have greater control over what the users in your account can see and/or edit. For example you can create a role where a user can only see a particular report and nothing else, or a user that can access the set up area, but only make changes on certain pages.
Top of Report Filters
On the standard reports you can now filter the data right on the report.
Just enter some text in the filter box to get started. To see all of the filter option click the filter icon.
The ePly system already supports French registration forms and currency formatting, but soon you will be able to set up forms and work with reports in French too. It will just be a few clicks to switch between languages.
Merge Fields for Forms
This will be a big time saver for people with events that use essentially the same form layout, but just need to update details such as the time date and location for each new event. Once this is launched you will only need to update the new details in a single place and the changes will be reflected anywhere you use the merge field such as in the form header, closed page, confirmation email, etc.
Trade Show Appearance 21 & 22.
We will be in Toronto exhibiting at the Incentive Works trade show August 21 & 22. If you are planning on attending please stop by booth #738 to meet a few of the ePly staff in person.
