New features added to Events Management System

The next time you log in to the Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) Events Management System, you’re likely to notice several changes and exciting new features. Staff members in ANR Event Services and ANR Technology Services have been hard at work developing and adding new features to increase the functionality and capabilities of the system.

The most noticeable change is the creation of a new dashboard. When you log in to the events management system, you will see your event listing. From this event listing, your event title will direct you to the dashboard. This new dashboard provides a summary of your event as well as access to all the necessary links for managing and running your event in one easy-to-find place.

In addition, the events management system now has quotas. You have the ability to set minimum and maximum attendance numbers on the entire event, on a registration process or on a registration input. This new functionality includes a waitlist component so once you reach your quota, your participants will be able to be placed on a waitlist for a possible opening. Visit the “Events Planning Resources” section of the ANR Communications website to watch a pre-recorded training session and learn how to set up quotas on your event.

The counts report also has expanded field options to make it more robust. These customizable reports can now include cost and financial information, such as the registration cost, balance due, amount paid, credits and late fees. In addition, you can now add the notes field on a counts report.

The team is also hard at work developing the duplicate event feature and it should be released before the first of the year.

If you have any questions regarding the system and these new features, or if you want to know how to implement them for your next event, please contact ANR Event Services at events@anr.msu.edu or 517-353-3175.
