Event Registration Preferences
Under Event Registration Preferences, you can select the information you will require from individuals when they register for events.
By default, guest registrations require a contact's name and e-mail, but you can require contacts to enter their address and phone number as well.
You can also enter a message to display on event registration receipts. This message displays unless you change the message for individual events.
To save any changes you make to Event Registration Preferences, click Save.
Assign Administrator E-mail
You must enter an administrator e-mail address. When users report problems, join classes or activities, request changes to pledges, and add individuals or families to the database, Access ACS sends notification e-mails to the e-mail address that you enter.

the Member Status(es) of the records that display

- the fields that display, besides Name, in the Online Directory
