Introducing Sub-Events in the Events app



Introducing our latest milestone in enhancing the Events app experience: the integration of sub-events functionality. Sub-events empower organizers to nest events within parent events seamlessly. With this release, administrators gain the flexibility to curate complex event structures, tailor attendee experiences, and efficiently manage event flow.

Sub-events offer a myriad of possibilities that enable administrators to configure event hierarchies. For instance:

  • Each parent event can accommodate multiple sub-events, which can be organized according to preference
  • Sub-events can be designated as mandatory or optional
  • Sub-events can collect unique registration data, different from the parent event or other sub-events

In practice, imagine a large-scale conference encompassing various workshops, panel discussions, and networking sessions. Leveraging the sub-events feature, organizers can neatly categorize each component under the umbrella of the main conference. Attendees can navigate through the conference itinerary, registering for individual sessions based on their preferences. Meanwhile, administrators gain insights into attendee interests and engagement levels across different segments of the event.

Within this initial release of the sub-event feature, the following are current functional limitations:

  1. Parent events with sub-events can only be used with the standard event registration process. They are not supported by the Events shopping cart or Events enhanced shopping cart.
  2. Restrictions to a ticket type based on logged in user status is supported for parent events but not sub-events.
  3. Confirmation page and confirmation email details show only parent registration details and not sub-event details.

Keep an eye out as we continue to iterate on the sub-events functionality in the future!

Happy Soapboxing!
