Event Calendar Custom RSVP
Display an RSVP form with events selected from the Campus Event Calendar. Users can select one or more events and submit an RSVP to a specified e-mail address. The RSVP submissions are also collected in a database on the Web server, and the Event RSVP Export element can be used to export the RSVP data as an Excel file. In the events calendar, you can set a limit on the number of RSVP's for each event, a waiting list size, and a deadline date.
How to add the Event Calendar Custom RSVP Element
The Event Calendar RSVP element can be found in the Content Well element gallery category. Click the "insert new element" text in the Content Well, and select the RSVP element from the gallery.
After the element has been added to the page, you will need to set one or more parameters, to select the Event Calendar data for display. This element accepts parameters similar to those used in the Event Calendar Summary and Detail element:
Required Parameters - You'll need to provide the following parameters:
Note: This Web site includes a list of Event sponsor and series ID numbers, for reference. The schedule id can be found in the URL of an event detail display (example: http://www.scu.edu/events/?sched=5050 - enter "schedule=5050 to select only this event for display in the RSVP form).
In most cases you will only need to supply two parameters; an organization, series, or schedule id number and an email address.
Event RSVP Export
The RSVP data submitted through the Event Calendar RSVP form is collected in a database on the Web server. The Event RSVP Export element can be used to view RSVPs currently submitted and select the RSVP data for export to Excel, as a text file, or sent as an email message.
How to add the Event Custom RSVP Export element
The Event Custom RSVP Export element can be found in the Content Well element gallery category. Click the "insert new element" text in the Content Well, and select the RSVP Export element from the gallery.
The Event Custom RSVP element does not require any parameters if it is placed in the same subsite as the actual RSVP form. If it is located elsewhere, you will need to set one or more parameters, to select the Event Custom RSVP data for display and export. This element accepts the parameters similar to those used in the Event Calendar Custom RSVP element:
Exporting RSVP data
The export element will display any RSVPs submitted for the selected events. You can export this data in three ways; as a CSV (comma-separated-value) formatted file which can be opened in Excel or imported to Access, displayed as text output to the Web browser screen, or sent as text output to a specified e-mail address. The exported data will include the event title, data, RSVP data, and the date and time when the RSVP was submitted.
