If you have ever had to deal with large scale registration for any professional development training events, you know how easily it can get out of hand. Especially without a solid system for capturing the registrants’ data. You could try and get through it using Google’s multitude of useful tools, but hopping between forms, sheets, emails, and back again makes for a very messy registration.

Instead of manually capturing, transferring and coordinating all the information for every person, the proposed taskflow allows the registrant to input all the information themselves. It starts off with a form on your website that displays the course information including the category, specific event, venue and date.

The registrant enters their email address, and saves the form. In the forms that follow, the registrant fills in all the information needed for registration, including their personal details as well as their professional registration information.

Personal details are filled in, as well as those of the person who will be paying for the event.

The registrant fills in one more form, agreeing to terms and conditions and giving a little bit of feedback.

Once all the data is captured, the taskflow goes on to automatically notify everybody involved in order to get the registration completed. The accounts department is informed to invoice the registrant…

After the training is complete and paid for, the registrant’s PDF certificate is automatically generated using a DocRaptor task, and a link to download it is emailed to them.

At any point during the registration process, all of the information that has gone back and forth can be viewed in a customizable ‘Live taskflow’ view — this can also be downloaded and printed for convenient use on the day of the event.
