Event managers have the ability to customize their Eventsforce website and registrations pages in an event. The website pages that can be accessed for editing include:

  • Agenda page - page containing sessions

  • Attendee details page - page containing questions asked of the attendee

  • Confirmation page - page where registration is confirmed

  • Decline invitation page - page where an attendee declines an invitation

  • Home page - home page for the event website

  • Invitations page - page where a booker invites attendees to complete their details

  • Ticket selection page - page containing ticket types, summary box, and discount code

  • Any custom pages - custom pages added to the event by the event manager

Event managers can access the above pages for the purpose of:

Note: The "+" sign that appears immediately above and below your website banner is used for adding content to the 'banner' area, meaning it will appear on all pages. The "+" sign that appears below the banner section (generally above your page header text or below) is used to add content to the 'body' area and only appears on that page.

Adding a website banner

Eventsforce allows for two different types of banners to be uploaded:

  • Website banner (1440x380) = used on all website pages (home, agenda, ticket selection, custom pages)

  • Event banner (1440x150) = used on registration pages and system emails

The ‘Event banner’ is uploaded on the Setup > Event > Properties page and selecting the ‘Advanced’ button at the bottom.

To upload a website banner, take the following steps:

  1. Go to Website > Content

  2. Click the arrow in the top left to open the menu key/list

  3. Visit the “Home” page

  4. Click the arrow in the top left to close the menu key/list

  5. Hover over the banner image and select the ‘Edit’ icon on the left

  6. Select the image, then click the “Insert/edit image” icon

  7. Click the ‘Browse/Source’ icon to locate a file on your computer, select the file

  8. Click “Save”

Adding registration questions

Registration questions for attendees can only exist on one page in the event. Event managers can use dependent questions and dividers to customize the page display further. Take the following steps to add new questions:

  1. Go to Website > Content

  2. Visit the “Attendee details” page

  3. Hover over a question on the page and click the “+” icon
