Briefing Management: event booking forms and custom forms
Your event spreadsheet can be replaced by a system that enables you to create forms and important business regulations for your organization. The forms are made so employees can fill them out, thus helping the process of requesting event bookings. In addition, you can grant access to agents, such as event agencies and suppliers, and, through the main panel, request additional information.
How do I set up a new form?
There are two types of forms:
- Custom form: The goal is to capture information regarding any theme. Simply provide the form link so it can be responded. The answers are available for export.
- Event booking form: This form should be shared only with booking users. By using this form, they will be able to request the creation of an event.
How do I add questions to the forms?
You can add questions to the forms by selecting the form you wish to add questions to and pressing Edit in the top right corner. Then, type your question in the box provided at the bottom of the form and press New Question.
Once you have created a question, you can click on it to edit it.

To view the responses that have already been submitted, click Submissions.
Event booking form submissions
When it comes to event booking form submissions, You will also be able to check event booking forms status and approve or reject requests.
Approving and rejecting event booking form requests
To approve or reject an event booking requested by a booking user, you - the administrator - will need to access the Submissions page of the form, and click on a submission which status is set to Submitted (still awaiting approval).
Then, you will be taken to a new page, and on the upper right corner, you will see the options to either Reject or Authorize the request.
If you press Authorize, the event will be created within the platform and the form submitter will be notified by email, with the link to enter the event.
If you press Reject, there will be a field for you to explain why the event request was rejected. The message you type in on this field will be sent to the booking user who submitted the request.
The booking user who submitted the request that was rejected will receive an email, as shown below:
You can assign one of the administrators as the form owner. Whoever is assigned as the form owner will receive a notification email anytime there's a new event booking request.
To do so, click Settings and choose one administrator (or more than one) using the dropdown bar corresponding to the field Form owner.
This is the notification email form owners will receive whenever there is a new notification:
If you assign more than one form owner, each person will receive the same email displayed above.
To preview a form, click the form you want to view, and then press Preview. The form will open automatically on a new page.
To view all the event booking form submissions and their status, go to Booking > Submissions and click on the chosen form.
At the top of the page, you will find four boxes with general information about the submissions:
- Total requested: Counts how many event booking forms have been submitted.
- Pending: Counts how many event bookings are pending approval.
- Approved: Counts how many event bookings have been approved.
- Rejected: Counts how many event bookings have been rejected.
You will also see a list of all the pending submissions with information about the event name, the requestor, the assigned admin of the event, the status and date of submission.
You can also filter by Status using the drop down bar in the upper right corner of the Pending submissions section.
