Events and booking

Most websites today include an event calendar. We’ve developed one for SimpleSitepro that has several excellent features including a dedicated search and the ability to allow people to look at past events.

Submit an event

The website owner can choose to allow people to submit events to the calendar. These appear in the SimpleSitepro setup area where the website owner can review them. After editing, if required, the events can be added to the calendar or removed. Contact information is gathered for the person submitting the event, and a tracking system records the provenance of the event in case checks are required later.

Booking system

SimpleSitepro also features a booking system where you can create ticket types for events, and make these available through the events calendar on your website.  The booking system will allow people to reserve tickets, and if you wish, pay for them using various means.  Confirmation emails are sent and the booking is also stored in the events calendar.  Rationalisation of payments that are made after the booking (via online banking, for example) can be done using the unique identifier assigned to each reservation.   

Events feed

SimpleSitepro can automatically output events information to other pages on the website.  Panels containing upcoming events can appear on any pages, formatting however required.  On the home page, SimpleSitepro can automatically create a feature panel with information for the next event in the calendar, including an image if one has been uploaded.  SimpleSitepro takes care of all resizing and scaling required.
