            Events

            AccuCampus allows you to create, register for and track events. This allows you to track your students’ participation throughout the campus, even for one-off events. All non-course events within AccuCampus are called Seminars. Seminars can be recurring or standalone. 


            Advanced Options > Event Session Registration

            Within this page, you are able to adjust settings for events at four different levels – Global, Location-Specific, Seminar-Specific and Session-Specific. The settings are hierarchical. To get to these settings, follow these steps.

            From the Main Sidebar, hover over Advanced Options.


            Click Settings.
             

            Click Event Session Registration.
             

            Global Settings

            The global settings control all events within the system. If no other levels are changed, these settings take precedence.

            Click Global Settings.
             

            Choose if Registration for events is enabled or disabled for all events in the system. If registration is disabled, attendees will need to be manually added by an administrator with permissions.


            If desired, set a Capacity for all events in the system.


            If desired, set a Trainer for all events in the system.


            Choose the Number of Days to Show Upcoming Events. This sets how far ahead events will display to users.


            If desired, set a Reminder for events.


            If desired, set how late an attendee can register to an event relative to the event date.


            If desired, set how early an attendee can register to an event relative to the event date.


            If desired, set how late an attendee can unregister from an event relative to the event date.


            Click Save.
             

            Location-Specific Settings

            The location settings control events at a specific location. Much like the appointment settings, this refines the event settings for your specific center or department and will only apply to that location.

            Search for and select a Location. Click View Location Settings.


            Choose if Registration for events is allowed. There are three settings:
            Use Default: causes the location to default to whatever the global setting is.
            Enabled: allows users to register to events for the location.
            Disabled: doesn’t allow users to register for events for the location.


            If desired, set a Capacity for all events at the location.


            If desired, set a Trainer for all events at the location.


            If desired, set how late an attendee can register to an event relative to the event date.


            If desired, set how early an attendee can register to an event relative to the event date.


            If desired, set how late an attendee can unregister from an event relative to the event date.


            Click Save.

            Seminar-Specific Settings

            The seminar-specific settings control a specific seminar. 

            Search for and select a Seminar. Click View Seminar Settings.


            Choose if Registration for the seminar is allowed. There are three settings:
            Use Default: causes the seminar to default to whatever the local and global settings are.
            Enabled: allows users to register to the seminar.
            Disabled: doesn’t allow users to register for the seminar.


            If desired, set a Capacity for the seminar.


            If desired, set a Trainer for the seminar.


            If desired, set how late an attendee can register to the seminar relative to the event date.


            If desired, set how early an attendee can register to the seminar relative to the event date.


            If desired, set how late an attendee can unregister from the seminar relative to the event date.


            Click Save.

            Session-Specific Settings

            The session-specific settings allow you to register users for the specific session of a seminar.

            Search for and select a Seminar and a Session Date (optional). Click Find Sessions.



            Search for and add a user.



            Creating Seminars

            The ability to create seminars is based on your permissions.

            Click Create Seminar.
             
            Enter a Full Unique Code for the seminar. As with courses, this cannot match any other course within AccuCampus for the chosen semester.


            Enter a Name for the seminar. This displays to the user when they search for the seminar.


            Select the Semester when the seminar will take place.


            If desired, select the College Department that the seminar will be associated with.


            If desired, enter a Group for the seminar. This will associate a seminar with other seminars. This is useful for seminars with multiple sections and allows reports to be run on all of those sections without having to individually select them.


            Enter Details for the seminar. We recommend entering a description of the event or important information about the event in this space. This will display to users when they search for the seminar.


            Enter a Schedule. The schedule could be recurring or one-time. You can add more than one of each.

             
             
            Attendance: decide how early or late an attendee will be able to sign-in /out for the seminar.


            Center Attendance: decide if there is a required presence percentage in order for the attendance to count as present and if attendees are required to sign out.


            Click Save.



            Registering for Seminars 

            Depending on your permissions, you will use one of two paths to register for seminars. If you are an administrator, you may also be able to go straight to the seminar and add yourself.
