- Special Events
- Scheduled Programs
- Preregistered Programs
Scheduled Programs are events that recur daily, weekly or monthly at a defined time, such as a tour or performance. These are events that you do not need a list of attendees (or roster), just maybe a list of people who purchased tickets.
Preregistered Programs are events that also recur events that recur daily, weekly or monthly at a defined time, such as a seminar or workshop. However, these types of programs require Patrons to provide the names of each person they are buying tickets for. This allows you to get a roster of attendees. This type of event also utilizes the mobile check-in feature allowing you to check in registerants on your mobile device.
