Tips for Lots of Free Events

If your organization primarily organizes free events, here are a couple (optional) suggestions to streamline the registration process:

  • Hide the price column
  • Hide the datetime section
  • Hide the pricing information in the checkout
  • Hide ticket details
  • Turn off Multiple Event Registration
  • Set max number of tickets allowed per order for this event to 1

Hide the price column

Use the  Custom CSS upgrade to add the following css to your web site to hide the price column in the ticket selector.

.ee-ticket-selector-ticket-price-th {display:none}
.tckt-slctr-tbl-td-price {display:none}

Hide the datetimes section

Using the  Advanced Event Editor, navigate to the Events > Template Settings to turn off showing the Datetimes on the event Listing page.

You can also hide the datetimes from the event listing page by following this document: http://help.eventsmart.com/article/116-hide-datetimes-from-event-details-page

Hide the pricing information during checkout

Use the  Custom CSS upgrade to add the following css to your web site to hide the pricing information during the registration step of the checkout process. 

From this:

to this:

.spco-ticket-info-dv th:nth-of-type(3), .spco-ticket-info-dv th:nth-of-type(4), .item_c, .item_r { display:none; }

.spco-ticket-info-dv th:nth-of-type(2), .item_l:nth-of-type(2) { text-align: center; }

Hide Ticket Details

Using the Advanced Event Editor, navigate to the Events > Template Settings to turn off the Ticket Details of the ticket selector:

Turn off Multiple Event Registration

For those with access to the  Multiple Event Registration feature, navigate to Event Smart > General Settings > Admin Options and set the Multiple Event Registration Activation to Inactive. That will deactivate the Event Cart to make the checkout faster, but it will disable the process to let people purchase different events during the same checkout

Set max number of tickets allowed per order for this event to 1

You can allow your audience to only purchase one ticket at a time by changing the Maximum number of tickets allowed per order for this event to 1. Edit your event, and on the right hand side you'll see the Even Registration Options panel. Change the number from 10 to 1:
