The Registration Lock Code can be utilized in two ways:
Events: This means that the code can be set at the overall event level. Users will need to enter the correct code to register for any part of the event.
Specific Shift: Additionally, a code can be applied to a particular shift within the event. Users will need to provide the correct code to register specifically for that particular shift of the event.
Create a Lock Code for an Event:
An event registration lock code is a setting under Edit Event > Registration Settings. Event admins can create this code to keep the event private or exclusive to others. Only people who know the code can register for the event. It's a way to control who gets access and keep the event secure and limited to the right participants.
You can find this setting if you scroll past Guest Registration and Minors:
After setting the lock code, you can use the invite link on the Event Dashboard:
PRO TIP: You will need to make your Event Private - Group Only if you wish to invite guests to the event to register without creating an account on GivePulse.
The user will be asked to enter the registration code to view the event when you share the Shareable Link for a Private Event.
Lock Code on Specific Shifts in an Event
Lock codes can also be generated for specific shifts. After creating the shift, navigate to the shift settings. Under "More Settings," you'll find a dropdown menu where you can generate a lock code for that particular shift. Only users with the correct lock code will be able to register for this date or shift.
