Chains

Updated 2 months ago ​by Beatriz Nascimento da Silva

Activity chains allow you to connect some activities with each other, so that a person cannot sign up for one if they are registered for another, even if they are at a different time or on a different day.

This feature is useful when you have a limited number of activities in your event, or when an activity is repeated several times during your event, as it can give opportunity for more people to participate in them.

Below you will find out how to create chains. If you want to learn the basics of setting up a calendar within the platform, take a look at this other article: Agenda Management

How do I create a new chain?

To create a new chain, you need to click on AGENDA>ACTIVITIES. 

Chain creation follows two steps:

  1. Creating a chain

In AGENDA > ACTIVITIES, select the activity on the left in which you want to add a chain and go to the CHAINS tab.

Click EDIT to make changes to this section.


CREATE CHAIN:  This will create a chain with the name of this activity, and it will appear just below the dropdown.

  1. Connecting the chain

To connect a chain to another activity, just select the activity, and in the 'CHAINS ' tab , select the chain you have created and click on   'ADD CHAIN' . To save, click 'END' .

Note that by adding your chain, it will appear like the image shown below.

To delete a chain, simply click on the orange trash can icon.

How do I know my chain is working?

To check if your chain is working on the platform, check if all the desired activities are with the same chain in the activity list.

If you wish, you can also test by enrolling in one of the connected activities and see if you receive a message that prevents you from enrolling in the activities you have chained.

What does the chain look like on the app?

When accessing the calendar, the attendee will see the two activities, but when signing up for one, the other will automatically become unavailable for enrollment.

The other activity will read 'NOT AVAILABLE'

                                                         

How can the attendee register for an activity in the app?

Attendees can do this in two ways: (1) Pressing the ‘Pin’ button on the event calendar or (2) by clicking on "Details" of the activity, then pressing 'Pin' in the Interactions column.
