Each Cvent event has a unique URL or Weblink that will become live when the event is launched. At eComm, we typically use the Summary weblink to invite folks to register for the event - included in a Marketing Cloud message.
All done creating and testing your event? Contact your eComm specialist to approve your event. They will double-check numerous items; such as having an Event Planner Email Address and a CU brand compliance website along with correctly configured post-registration emails and financial information so money transfers to the right accounts, among other things. Then you will be ready for launch!
Cvent's new design experience updates the look and feel of almost all their core products. Users can switch back and forth to the new experience for now, but come Dec. 1, 2021 it will be the only option. Learn more about the navigating the new user experience.
While Cvent has a feature to "process payment at a later time," we never want to enable it. Collecting credit card information to process at a later time doesn't align with CU's approach to protecting cardholders and it should not be enabled under any circumstances. The good news is, by default, this setting is disabled across all events and most users remain unaware of this functionality. Follow these instructions to confirm your paid event doesn't have this feature enabled.
Salesforce Dashboards can provide easy to understand, quantifiable data on Marketing Cloud email sends and Cvent events - among other things. When used in combination with other information and your own criteria of success, it will help paint a more complete picture of your outreach efforts.
