Require Advance Notice For Event Registrations

You may want to require advance notice for online registrations to your events or limit last minute sign-ups. Occasion makes it easy to require advance notice and stop online registrations at a set time before the event.

This is an advanced feature so please follow these instructions closely when setting it up.

There are two types to advance notices:

  1. Stop online registrations an amount of time before an event starts
    Example: Stop online sales 4 days before an event starts
  2. Stop online registrations at a specific time on the day of the event
    Example: Stop online sales at 3pm on the day of the event.

Stop online registrations an amount of time before an event starts

  1. When editing an event, go to the "Timeslots" or "Dates and Times" tab.
  2. Look for the "Hide Timeslot" section and turn the switch "On".
  3. Select the first option, "Hide timeslots an amount of time before it starts", and adjust the hours, minutes or days before the event you'd like registrations to close.
  4. Click anywhere to save changes
