Default Values

The Default Values page allows you to set the default information for your events. This allows you to create a template based on what your normal events look like, thereby saving time in the future. If information is not provided within the creation of a new event the values will default to those entered within this section.

Note: It is recommended to save your defaults after filling out the Values on each of the associated pages, as listed below. This will ensure that you do not lose the entered information if your session times out.

GeneralThis is the default menu when you open the Default Values page. This menu allows you to set the basic "what, where, who-gets-the-money" template for your events. These values can all be changed when you create a new event, but these will be the defaults for new events in the future.

Type: Select whatever the most common event is from your list of Event Types. These are completely customizable. For more information on Event Types see Buz ERS > Administration > Event Types in the Reference Guide.

Status: Select the most common status from the list of statuses. For more information on Event Statuses, see Buz ERS > Administration > Event Status in the Reference Guide.

This will allow registrants to continue to register even after the Venue is marked as full, in case a registrant cancels their registration in the future.
