Entering Event Registrations as a System User
Constituents can register for events online, but there may be times event registrations need to be entered into Neon by staff, such as an onsite registration or taking a registration over the phone. There are two ways to enter these event registrations into NeonCRM:
- Using the Register button from the Event Detail Page. This would be ideal for constituents that do not have an account in your system.
- Entering event registrations through the registrants' accounts.
To enter a new event registration as a system user, you can start from one of two places: (1) the registrant's Neon account or (2) the Events tab.
To avoid potential duplicates, it's best to first search your database to see if the donor already has a Neon account. From the account page, click the New Registration button found under the Event Registrations section.
You can enter an event registration for a new registrant or add a new event registration to an existing account by navigating to Events tab > Events List and then you can click Register next to your desired event. You can also open the Event Detail Page of your desired event and click Register there as well.
