Post Description: The Get Started page provides event directors with a general overview of the event creation process, from Start to Finish.
Creating an event registration can seem like a daunting task, but the Race IT team wants to show that it truly is as simple as 1…2…3 ! In response to research, usability testing and general feedback, Race IT has created a Get Started page, which provides a general overview of the event creation process from Start to Finish.
First, event directors must create an account with Race IT. This will allow you to securely access your events and payment information. Your account can also be used to pre-populate your personal information when you register for other events that use Race IT.
The next step is to create your event and organization. Your organization is how you will manage your event(s) and how your registration fees will be sent to you. Once your organization is created, you can create your event by adding in details such as dates, location and pricing. You can create multiple events under a single organization to help better manage and organize your time and resources.
Once your event is created, you will be provided with various links that you can use. The Event Details link will link to the Event Details page with all of the general information on your event. The Registration URL is a direct link to the registration form. This is what you should put on your website and social media pages. The Participant Edit link is used by some events to allow participants to search and confirm that they are registered for an event. Finally, the Test Link is used by event directors to test their registration forms. We highly encourage our event directors to test their registrations and make sure the functionality and flow is exactly how they want it to be.
The Get Started page includes screencasts and helpful documents for event directors to download and view.
