Additional Options for Event Management

Not Registered Action: Choose what should happen to contacts who have not registered for the event. You can decide among the following:

  • Redirect to Another URL: This option allows you to redirect non-registrants to a different page. A new field will appear where you can either select an existing page from your workspace or paste a specific URL link to the target page.
  • Register Visitor on Pageview: Automatically register visitors for the event as soon as they land on the page.
  • Register Visitor after Form Submission: Register visitors for the event when they submit an Optin Form on the attached step.

Past Deadline Redirect URL: This feature redirects customers to a different page if they attempt to access an event or content after the specified deadline has passed. This ensures that users who miss the deadline are guided to a relevant page, such as an information page or an alternative event registration.
