After you've created tickets and published your Registration event, you can access the Settings tab to fine-tune some behavior, terminology, and visual elements of your registration page, emails, and more. The Settings tab contains four pages — General, Checkout, Payments, and Team Notifications. Let's explore! 🧭
This page lets you adjust messages about ticket availability, add social and calendar links to the post-registration page, manage duplicate email settings, and customize the labels of each page and button.
Show Registration Time? - When enabled, the checkout page displays a reservation timer. Users must check out within the timer limit or they must start over, and their ticket is no longer reserved. We recommend a minimum time limit of 15 minutes to make sure that users have enough time to enter payment and attendee information for themselves and others on the order.
Show Remaining Ticket Count? - When enabled, the registration page displays the number of remaining tickets. This is useful if you have a limited number of tickets and want to generate a sense of urgency.
Show Available Dates? - When enabled, the registration page shows the date range of a ticket's availability. This is useful if you have certain tickets only available in different sale windows.
Restrict Duplicate Email Addresses? - This option is enabled by default so that every ticket purchased must be associated with a unique email address. To let multiple people register with the same email address, set the toggle to No. To learn more about managing duplicate emails, check out the Duplicate Emails in Webex Events Registration article.
Social Sharing - When enabled, the Social Sharing buttons display on the registration page's Organizer section and the checkout confirmation page.
Add to Calendar - When enabled, the Add to Calendar link displays on the registration page and the checkout confirmation page. When a user clicks this link, they can add this event to one of the available calendars.
⭐️ Keep in mind, if you change the date or time of your registration after attendees have added it to their calendar apps, their calendars won't automatically reflect this adjustment. Attendees will have to either re-add the event to their calendar or manually update their calendar app.
These settings let you choose the Default Language of your registration page and communications and Allow Machine Translations.
There are two scenarios to consider with these settings:
Non-English Default Language with Machine Translations turned off:
When you select a Default Language other than English, all non-customizable text in the registration page and registration communications automatically change to the selected language. These include buttons, placeholder text, confirmation email text, receipts, tickets, etc.
If you choose not to use Machine Translations, you must enter all customizable text in your Registration Event in the selected default language. This includes everything from event and ticket names and descriptions to custom questions and the Custom Labels listed below. If that sounds like a lot of work, you can Allow Machine Translations.
Machine Translations turned on:
If you turn on Machine Translation, Google Translate automatically translates all customizable and hard-coded text in your registration event into your selected Default Language.
⭐️ Keep in mind, machine translation isn't perfect, and some translations may be incorrect or unnatural.
Registrants choose from our list of supported languages using the language drop-down in the registration page.
⭐️ Keep in mind, the Ticket Widget doesn't include the language drop-down and will display in the selected Default Language.
The Custom Labels section lets you easily modify the following section, button, and label text on the registration page:
About Section - Changes the labels of the About tab, and the About section heading on the main registration page.
Tickets Section - Changes the labels of the Tickets tab, and the Tickets section heading on the main registration page.
Free Ticket Description - Changes the label in the registration form and the order confirmation page and email.
Location Section - Changes the labels of the Location tab, and the Location section heading on the main registration page.
Organizer Section - Changes the labels of the Organizer tab, and the Organizer section heading on the main registration page.
Get Ticket Button Starts In - The Get Ticket button label that appears with a countdown to the first ticket becoming available.
Get Ticket Button - The button label when tickets are available for purchase.
Get Ticket Button Closed - The Get Ticket button label when tickets are no longer available.
Place Order - Changes the button attendees click to submit their order.
Terms & Conditions - Changes the title of the link that appears at the bottom of the main registration page.
⭐ Keep in mind, the Organizer tab only appears on the registration page if you entered information in the Basics tab under Organizer Information.
Click Publish Changes at the bottom of the page when you're done making adjustments.
This page lets you add custom messaging to your confirmation, cancellation, and refund emails, configure call-to-action (CTA) buttons, and decide what information the attached PDF ticket includes.
This section lets you add a custom message to the confirmation page and choose to also include it in the confirmation email. This is a great place to give attendees some additional information and get them hyped for the event.
⭐️ Keep in mind, attendees won't receive app download instructions automatically, so we suggest adding app download instructions to the Confirmation email if you'd like to get registrants into the event right away. Check out the App Access Instructions for Attendees article for app download instructions to send to your attendees.
Along with your custom message, you can add call-to-action (CTA) buttons! The available CTA buttons include links to your event app on the App Store and Google Play Store. The Custom Button option lets you link to the Web App or some other website.
If you add either of the Store buttons, you'll still have to supply a Button Link. It's easiest to get these by copying the URL from the buttons on the Promo Page for your event.
Click the preview button in the upper-right to review your changes.
By default, confirmation emails include a Download Ticket button that opens a PDF of the ticket. This section lets you choose whether to include the Ticket Description, Event Description, and Checkout Confirmation Message in this PDF.
⭐️ Keep in mind, you can disable the Download Ticket button on a per-ticket basis when you create a ticket.
Cancelation Email and Refund Email
When you refund or cancel an order, an email automatically generates and sends to the email associated with the refund or cancellation. Click the toggle to add a custom message to these emails, and click the preview button to preview your changes.
This page lets you add Terms and Conditions, select a Refund Policy, connect to Stripe if you're charging for tickets, configure tax settings, and enable additional payment options.
Terms & Conditions and Refunds
Click the Add Terms & Conditions button to add your own terms and conditions to the ones already shown for Webex Events.
Click Select Refund Policy, and in the modal that appears, choose from three possible preset refund policies, or select Custom Refund Policy. If you select Custom Refund Policy, fill in the text field below with your policy, and click Save Changes. Whichever option you choose, it's simply the stated policy on your registration page. You maintain full control over refunds as needed in the Webex Events Platform, and choosing one of these options doesn't restrict you in any way.
⭐ Keep in mind, Webex Events doesn't offer a formal refund request process attendees can take advantage of. Consider including the best email to reach you in the confirmation email so that, if life happens, attendees know who to ask for a refund.
Stripe is a technology-first approach to payments that makes moving money as simple, borderless, and programmable as the rest of the internet. Stripe’s products power payments for all kinds of companies, including Webex Events Registration!
If you need to connect to a different Stripe account than what you used previously, click the Disconnect Stripe Account button. All paid tickets will be Closed and Hidden for the duration that a Stripe account is disconnected. Then, connect Stripe to your correct account.
Refunds won't include Stripe's processor fees. However, they'll include Webex Events service fees.
⭐️ Keep in mind, you must connect your Registration event to Stripe before you can publish your event.
To add tax charges to a ticket, click the Add Tax button. You can assign one tax type to multiple tickets.
Additional Payment Options (Invoice and Check)
Enable Invoice or Check to let attendees pay for their registration fee with cash, check, or via some other medium. To learn all about offline payments, check out our Invoice & Check Payments article.
This page lets you activate and configure automated emails that periodically send you and your team details about new orders for select tickets. Receiving these emails regularly can help you and your team track daily sales and stay on top of incoming registrations.
Send Order Notification
By default, this setting is turned off. Toggling Send Order Notification to 'Yes' reveals the following notification settings:
Select Ticket Type - Select the ticket types to include in notifications.
Send Emails to - Select the team members who should receive notifications.
Notification Frequency - Select how often you want to receive notifications — every 30 minutes, every hour, or every day at a set time. Your team will receive emails at these regular intervals only when new orders have been placed since the last email was sent.
⭐️ Keep in mind, team notification emails show order details for up to 25 new orders. If there are more than 25 new orders, you should log in to the platform to view more details.
