RSVP Forms for Webinars and Other Special Cases

The default RSVP event registration form that comes with RSVPMaker was designed for in-person events, with space for registrants to provide a phone number and add the names of guests. When you are instead registering people for online events (the most common case in 2020), collecting a phone number may not be appropriate, and guest registration is probably irrelevant.

The latest RSVPMaker release makes it easier to switch between alternate RSVP Forms. I’ve provided one for webinars, which you can modify as needed, and you can create more.

Switch between RSVP Forms

When working with an event or event template, you can either switch to using one of the alternate forms (shared between all events that use it) or create a copy that you can customize.

This is similar to how you can either edit the default RSVP Form or create a customized copy of it.

There’s now an option to choose either the default form or one of the alternatives when you create a new event or event template.

You can edit the available forms, or create new ones, on the RSVP Forms tab of the RSVPMaker Settings screen.

You can modify the webinar form I’ve provided, which by default asks for first name, last name, and email, with a prompt to allow you to add the registrant to your email list (which can be automatic if you’re using RSVPMaker’s MailChimp integration).

Or you can create a new reusable form from scratch.

At the bottom of the RSVP Forms tab, you’ll see a listing of custom forms previously created for specific events. To make any of these forms reusable, you assign it a name that should be displayed on the menu.

RSVPMaker users can also manage forms by associating them with an event template for a given type of event, which can also include customized confirmation messages and settings shared across events based on that template. However, allowing RSVP Forms to be managed independently should help with scenarios where you want to collect a similar set of data for multiple types of events.
