Can you please explain what the difference is between the "Normal" and "Advanced" options for the "Event Listing Display Method" in the system configuration?
The "Event Listing Display Method" field in the system configuration is used to specify what events volunteers will see AFTER they have already logged in to CERVIS and registered for an event.
Set the value to 'Normal' to display all available events after initial event registration. The 'Normal' setting should be used when the normal event registration flow for your organization is that a volunteer will login and register for several different events during the same login session.
Set the value to 'Advanced' to display the last event the volunteer registered for after initial registration. The 'Advanced' setting should be used when your organization has numerous events available for registration and/or the normal event registration flow for your organization is that a volunteer will login and register multiple people in their profile for the same event during the same login session. Using the "Advanced" option will allow volunteers to easily find the event they just registered for, so they can register a family member for the same event, without have to scroll through the entire list of available events. When this option is configured, the volunteer is still able to view all events available for registration by clicking the "Show All Available Events" link.
To set the value for the "Event Listing Display Method", follow the steps below:
- Login to your CERVIS account.
- Click on the "Edit System Configuration" link under the "System Management" section of the Main Dashboard. Please note, this option will only be available to CERVIS users with the "Administrator" access level.
- Scroll down to the "System Appearance Options" section of the system configuration, and update the "Event Listing Display Method:" field with desired setting explained above.
- Click the "Update Configuration" button to save the configuration.
