How to create activities with restrictions and choice blocks?
Define the restrictions between different activities, regardless of day and time, in a way that your attendees will only be able to attend to one at a time or to multiple activities at the same time, depending on your event’s needs.
If none of your activities allow the attendees to customize their agendas, you can enable the Schedule lock. When this tool is active the attendees won’t be able to choose which activities they want/don’t want to attend. To enable it, go to Settings > Tools, then under the section Block you will see the option Schedule lock.
This feature is available within each activity, so if some of your activities do not allow your attendees to customize their agendas, you can enable the Enrollment lock for each one of them.
To enable it, go to Agenda > Activities, select the desired activity and in the details tab search for the option Enrollment lock.
How do I know the lock is working?
When accessing My Agenda area, the attendees will see a message if they try to unpin/unenroll the activities the admin previously enrolled them, if the Schedule Lock or the Enrollment lock are enabled.
If you have simultaneous activities at the same event and you want your attendees to be able to enroll in only one of them, you can enable this feature. You can also disable it if you want your attendees to enroll in all activities. To enable this feature go to Settings > Tools, then under the section Extra you will see Concurrent Schedule.
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 an opportunity for more people to participate in them.
Below you will find out how to create chains.
