When you publish your Registration Event, new pages and menus become available. Some of these options let you configure your registration page further, and the rest let you monitor registrations as they come in. This article touches briefly on each of these options and provides links to complete instructions for each one. Let's dive in! 🏊
The options on these pages should be considered before you start publishing registration links and widgets, because they may impact the registrant experience.
Checkout forms let you customize what optional or required questions an attendee answers when checking out with a specific event ticket. You can have a single form for everyone, or multiple forms tailored to different audiences.

Discount Codes let you provide discounts or special offers to specific registrants that have the code. You can also provide access to hidden Ticket options via Access Codes. 🤫

The Settings menu contains many small options that you should consider before you publish registration links and widgets. The Settings menu has 3 options:
General - Customize button and heading labels and social links.
Checkout - Manage custom messaging in automatic registration emails.
Payments - Set your registration terms & conditions. If your registration will be paid, set your refund policy, and link to Stripe.

Interaction and monitoring pages

You can also use the Integration button to link your Registration to a Socio event if you started the Registration "from scratch".
If you chose the Start From Scratch option when you made your Registration, it won't be linked to an actual Socio Event. If you want to link it to a Socio Event or Community after the fact, publish the Event or Community, then go to your Registration's Attendees page and click Integration.
In the modal that appears, you can use the drop-down to link your Registration to any Event or Community you have access to. Click Save Changes when you're done.
⭐ Keep in mind, you can only link your Registration to Events or Communities that are in Building or Published status.
Lite Check In
Lite Check In is a simple tool that's easy to use to check attendees in or out of your event. You’re ready to get started with Check In instantly! Check In is only available in a desktop browser.

Instead of Lite Check In, you can also use our robust Socio Onsite product which is a combination check in and badge printing app. For a complete look at Socio Onsite, check this out.
The Metrics page is where you can review and share your registration dashboard and reports. This is the perfect place to go for a quick snapshot of your event activity, both during and after your event.
