Event Portal - Customising the Event Portal

Alix (Workbooks Online) Posted: 2017-11-22 18:29

You can customise the Event Portal at any time, using the Web Process parameters. Go to Start > Configuration > Automation > Processes > Web Processes and open the Event Portal process. On the 'Parameters' tab, you will see the following parameters, which can be edited to change the look of the Portal:

  • availability_check - This parameter controls how frequently the availability of the Event is checked, i.e. if set to 5000, the availability will be checked every 5 seconds. Increasing this number decreases the frequency. This number can be increased if the rate at which people sign up is low, or if you rarely run out of spaces, but should be left at 5000 if you run out of spaces quickly and need users to be able to see the availability accurately.
  • company_logo - This parameter stores the URL of the image that is displayed in the top left of the portal when viewing Events. It is best to host the image in the Workbooks Upload Library, and use the 'External URL' provided. Make sure you include the http:// or https:// at the beginning of the URL.
  • company_name - The name of your Company as you want it to be displayed in the header of the main Events page.

  • company_website - the URL of the web page that portal user should be directed to if they click on your company logo. Make sure you include the http:// or https:// at the beginning of the URL.
  • default_speaker_img - This parameter controls what image will be shown when no Speaker Profile Image has been provided. By default, this parameter will be set to https://wb.workbooks.com/resources/=QzM/person_icon.png which is the Workbooks Person Icon:

  • event_logo - This parameter controls the default background image that will be used if no Background Image URL is specified on the Event record. Make sure you use a high quality image, but ensure you use the right size. If an image is too small, it will be enlarged to fill the space, but if it is too small, it will be cropped down. It is best to host this image in the Workbooks Upload Library and use the 'External URL' provided. Make sure you include the http:// or https:// at the beginning of the URL. 
  • header_logo - This parameter controls the header image that is displayed on the main Events page. Make sure you use a high quality image, but ensure you use the right size. If an image is too small, it will be enlarged to fill the space, but if it is too small, it will be cropped down. It is best to host this image in the Workbooks Upload Library and use the 'External URL' provided. Make sure you include the http:// or https:// at the beginning of the URL.
  • registration_message - This parameter controls the message that will appear at the top of the Registration Form. This must be in HTML. If not set, the default will be:
    <p>To register for this event, input your details below.</p>
  • show_availability - Setting this parameter to 1 stop the number of available spaces being visible in the Registration section of the Event.
