All About Admissions
Allocating admissions - assigning admissions to in-person event attendees who are in your Greater Giving supporter database - ahead of event day is a key step to successfully executing table assignments, inviting guests to bid online (both ahead of and during the event), and keeping your check-in line moving quickly. In Greater Giving there are a few different methods and tools for maximizing the number of properly allocated admissions, as well as for obtaining important guest information such as contact details, meal choices, and pre-registered credit cards. We will explore all these methods and tools, including our RSVP feature, which allows you to create unique RSVP URLs for any admissions or sponsorship sale.
