Customize Event Registration confirmation message

When a new participant completes the registration form for an Event they are shown the Registration confirmation message.

The default message reads:

“Thank you for your registration request. Your information has been submitted to the event host.”

Here’s how you can customize this message.

  1. Login to Connect and select the “Event Management” tab.
  2. Click on Event Templates
  3. Select the Event Template from the drop-down list.
  4. Select “Edit template”

EditEventTemplate

 

“Edit template” takes you to a new window / tab in your browser where you can edit the template.

EventRegistration_Edit

In this view, select “Event Registration” and right-click on the field where it reads “Registration Form” and “Registration confirmation message […]” as in the screenshot below and select “Edit” in the drop down menu.

rightClickEdit

Hitting “Edit” takes you here:

OnRegistrationConfirmation_dropdown

Select the first item “On Registration Confirmation” by opening the drop down menu. Here you can edit the Registration Confirmation Message text.

Make your changes and click “ok”.

regConfirmation_changeText

To make sure your changes are applied you need to activate the template. You can do this in this floating menu on the right of your screen:

 

CQ_activateTemplate

Once the template is activated the change is applied to all Events based on the template you chose to edit.

 

 

Demystifying Mixing VoIP and Telephony in a Meeting

With Unified Voice (UV) enabled and selected from within a meeting room:

The host may choose: Meeting>Preferences>Audio Conference>Allow participants to use Microphones: When Allow participants to use Microphones is checked, participants have power to enable their own microphones within the meeting. When it is unchecked, the host must enable microphones first and then the participant can enable the microphone with host permission within the meeting:

uv-1.fw

In either case, checked or unchecked, the host needs to first start the audio conference within any meeting:

uv-1b.fw

And the participant needs to choose the microphone option and enable it (even though the host has enabled it manually within the meeting or set it as permanently enabled within the room):

uv-1a.fw

Note that by default, when UV is in use, the telephony option is checked for the participant:

UV2.fw

The participant must select the microphone option in order to use the microphone instead of the phone; this will allow the microphone to broadcast to the users in the meeting using UV telephony:

UV3.fw

With all these settings in place, VoIP microphones can talk to telephony and telephony to VoIP and both will be audible in an archive recording for playback on demand.
