Prevent registration to 2 sessions

  • 1.  Prevent registration to 2 sessions

    Hi,

    Is there a way to prevent guests who register for one session from registering for another? We don't want guests who register for our summit to be able to register for our tour. It is either one or the other.

    Thanks!

    Session groups work, or you can also create an Advanced Rule to only allow one or the other.

    You'd want to use sessions groups, since they will only be able to click one or the other. If you setup advanced rules, then the person would still be able to select another session, when they go to click next, then an error would appear letting them know that they can only choose 1, but the best user experience would be to only let them select one or the other from the beginning, which session groups help accomplish

    Agree. The first year I used cvent I used a lot of advanced rules.
    That caused the attendee to go back and change their selection.
    Session groups avoids that situation.

    I think it also makes the registration page less cluttered.
