The event details page is where you set the event name, event time, event date, event location, event organizer information, and most importantly, when to automatically close the registration form.
Ensure you fill out all, if not most, of the information for your event here.
Merge fields allow you to change an event detail such as the event name in one place (on the general settings page) and have the change reflected every where you use the event name (header, thanks page, confirmation email, closed page, etc.).
We suggest using a merge field if you will be having the same information in more than one area of your registration system. Doing this will speed up setup and eliminate errors when you are updating details or copying forms. Merge fields are especially useful when you have repeating events and you simply need to update the time, date and location details each time.
You might want to use merge fields for:
- the event name, time, date, etc. since these details will likely appear in your header, in confirmation emails and on the closed page.
- the name, phone number and email address of a contact person since the name usually appears in the footer of the registration form, in confirmation emails and receipts and on the closed page.
