There may be times when you want to promote just one Event (on a specific day/time). You can make a direct link to that specific event's Registration form, and put this link either on your webpage or in an email blast. Note: Be sure when you set up your event the setting for Display to Customers in the Display on Calendar section is set to Open Dates Only or Open & Booked Dates. If you select No for this setting, the event will not be visible on the calendar and the family will not be able to sign up for it in the Parent Portal.
To get the correct URL (hyperlink), you must access your "external calendar":
- Go to the Gear (icon) > Settings > Online Registration > View Monthly Events Calendar link.
- Click the link and your current "external" Event Calendar will open. From the calendar, click the Event day/time you want to promote. The Event Registration form for that Event will open.
- Copy the URL from the event, located in the address bar (see image example below). This is the hyperlink you can use in emails or on webpages, to bypass the calendar and have the Registration form for the SPECIFIC event launch directly.
Using a direct link in this manner bypasses the Calendar openings countdown functionality, thus rendering Max Size out of the control of Jackrabbit. This can result in overbooking if you fail to remove this direct link once the Event is at maximum enrollment size. Therefore, Jackrabbit doesn't recommend bypassing the Calendar unless the event max size is unlimited or unimportant to you.
