We need to change the date of the event, what to do?
Are the participants already registered and you need to reschedule the event to another date? In that case, you can keep working in your current event, but sometimes it’s better to start over with a completely new event. Do you prefer the first option? Our advise is to send a message to the registered persons via the message center so they can confirm their participation for the event on the new date. You can create a message which contains a button with a link, that will redirect participants to their registration form to edit their registration (in this case confirm their participation for the new date). You can also do the same when participants need to choose a workshop, in case the program and workshops were not final during the pre-registration. Before creating this message, please check the following: firstly, make sure that the setting ‘editing of registration’ is not checked under website settings. And make sure that you have added a new question to the registration form, such as the new date of the event or the workshops can choose from. Then add a button with a link in the message. After adding a button in the message, click on the pen and then choose ‘edit form’ in the dropdown. This way your participants will be redirected to their registration form by clicking on ths button so they can edit/change their registration. Click here for more information.

How do I send a test email?
