The video below walks through the process of setting up Event Registration in the Socio Platform.
⭐️ Keep in mind, all fields in the Socio Platform that have an asterisk (*) are required.
To get started, go to the Registration page, and click Create Event.
In the modal that appears, you can choose to Start From Scratch or Select Existing Event to copy information from and link the registration to a Socio Event or Community. If you choose to Start From Scratch, attendees that register won't be automatically passed to a Socio Event, but you can link it later on.
