The Power of Mandatory Booking Options

Explore how the implementation of mandatory booking options can improve your upcoming registrations.

Event organizers are constantly seeking ways to tailor their offerings to meet the unique needs and preferences of their attendees. With this in mind, we're thrilled to introduce a new function within our platform Invajo Classic. In this blog post, we're going to delve into this seemingly small but powerful feature and explore how it can enhance your event planning experience.‍

The Power of Mandatory Booking Options‍

Imagine you're organizing an event, and you want to ensure that every attendee has a seamless experience. You've designed a main entrance ticket that's mandatory for gaining access to the event, but you also want to offer additional booking options, such as workshops, special activities, and dinner choices. Here's where our new function comes into play.The main entrance ticket is the essential part of your event. It's non-negotiable; every attendee must book it to participate. To ease administrative strains, you can now simply mark this option as "mandatory." This means that attendees cannot skip this component, ensuring that everyone meets the basic requirements for entry.‍‍

Practical Applications‍

Let's break down how this feature can be particularly beneficial:

  • Streamlined Event Access: By making the main entrance ticket mandatory, you eliminate the risk of attendees inadvertently skipping this crucial step. It ensures that every guest has the necessary access to your event, setting the stage for a smooth and hassle-free experience right from the start. Remaining booking options can be used to gather information, and present attendees with choices while still having the option to limit bookable time and the number of available places.
  • Simplified Registration: For events that offer a range of booking options, such as workshops or meal choices, you can now simplify the registration process. Attendees no longer need to navigate a maze of repeated questionnaires. Instead, they begin by booking the main entrance ticket, and from there, they can seamlessly add on additional activities or dining preferences.‍

Efficiency Through Deactivated Questions‍

Another scenario where our new function shines is when you have multiple booking options that share common questions. Consider an event with various add-on choices, each requiring attendees to answer the same set of queries. This redundancy can be not only time-consuming but also frustrating for participants.Our solution? Deactivate the repetitive questions from each booking option perceived as an add-on. Instead, make the main ticket, perhaps labeled as "I wish to attend," mandatory, and keep the questions enabled for only this booking option. This central ticket becomes the hub where you gather all questionnaire responses, making the process efficient and user-friendly.
