Allow website visitors to RSVP for single (nonrecurring) events on your calendar. You can enable automated, branded emails and/or email attendees manually. Then manage attendee status using Omni CMS.
To get started,
- Enable RSVPs in both site and calendar settings and add Google CAPTCHA.
- Then add RSVPs to individual events.
Registration and AuthenticationLink to this section
If you choose to enable automated emails with RSVPs, emails are sent from a Modern Campus SMTP server. We use temporary, one-time codes in automated emails to authenticate attendees. If an attendee does not verify their email within 10 minutes, they will see a prompt similar to the following:
Manage RSVP EventsLink to this section
After you have published an event with RSVPs, manage responses and changes from Add-Ons > Calendar > RSVP. Click the More Actions menu for the RSVP to
Edit the event. Then republish to see updates on your public events page.
Note: If your event already has attendees, email them with changes.
This downloads a CSV file containing attendee details. Exported details include,
- Attendee ID
- Attendee Name
- Attendee Email
- Time of Registration (Formatted)
- Time Registration Was Verified (Formatted)
- Verification Method
- Registration Status
Delete the RSVP details from the event. This does not delete the event itself.
The event will update automatically to remove the RSVP details.
If your event already has attendees, email them with changes.
Manage AttendeesLink to this section
To manage attendees in Omni CMS,
- Go to Add-Ons > Calendar > RSVP.
- Click the RSVP Event Name to see all attendees and their status.
- Tab between the three status options for attendees that are Pending email verification, those that have Verified their email, and those that have Canceled.
- Click the More Actions menu for the attendee to,
Set to Pending, Verify, or Cancel
Manually move the attendee to a new status, either Pending, Verified, or Canceled, without sending an automated email to the attendee.
Open a new message in your default email client using a
mailto link. The attendee is added to the Bcc line in the email to protect privacy.
Click the Select All checkbox to email all attendees simultaneously.
Attendees can add events to their calendar but they will manage their responses using email, not the ICS file.
Remove the attendee and their details from Omni CMS, permanently.
Click the Select All checkbox to delete all attendees simultaneously.
You can also Export to CSV to manage the attendee details outside of Omni CMS. This is the same export in RSVP Events.
Prevent New RSVPsLink to this section
If you would like to remove the ability to add new RSVPs to events while still retaining past RSVP details, disable RSVP in calendar settings (and keep RSVP enabled in site settings). Users will no longer be able to add RSVPs to individual events but will see details of previous RSVPs at Add-Ons > Calendar > RSVP.
