You can create an online form that parishioners use to suggest events. From those suggestions, you can create the events you want to host.

Creating a Web Registration Form

Create a registration form for your parish's website. When parishioners complete the form, the registration data is saved to our secure web server.

 To create an online event registration form
  1. On the Information tab, click Scheduling Wizards > Event Online Registration.
  2. Select Create Web Registration Form, and select your site management option. Click Next.
  3. Read the process description, then click Next.

    Useful Information

    Note that this process creates a Read Me file, as well as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files. Copy these files and send them to your website manager.

  4. Enter the form name and brief introduction to display at the top of your web form. Click Next.
  5. Enter the email address of the person to notify after someone registers an event online. Typically, this is the person who processes registrations.
  6. Compose the email to confirm that the event information was sent to your parish.
  7. If you want to redirect to another webpage after submitting the form, enter the URL. Enter the number of seconds to show the confirmation page before redirecting.

    Tip

    Enter 0 seconds to go directly to the webpage without showing confirmation.

  8. Click Next.
  9. Click Finish or Transfer.

After the files are created, have your website manager put the form on your website.
