If you’re organizing an a-thon experience, you’ll have the option to enforce some limitations to fit the needs of your fundraiser. For example, you can create a registration that remains open for the entire duration of your experience or just for a limited amount of time. You can also limit the number of individuals who register for a special option available through your a-thon, which may be useful at certain times throughout your experience. Givebacks (formerly MemberHub) makes it simple to customize your fundraiser with these limitations for both individual participants and teams.
If you’re seeking ways to generate excitement for an a-thon you’ve just kicked off, you might consider offering free or discounted registration for a limited time. Or, if participation plateaus as your fundraiser goes on, you might offer a mid-experience special for a limited time.
Should you choose to use a limited-time registration, you can select an advanced date so that the registration window becomes live during your experience. The registration won’t show until the start date, and once the window has closed and registration is no longer available, it will no longer appear on your experience page.
If you’d prefer to cap participation for a discounted or free registration based on quantity instead of time, you can use the limited-quantity option. You can still run specials to kick off your experience or revive enthusiasm as needed, but instead of limiting it to a window of time, you’ll select a maximum number of registrants allowed.
After the limit has been reached, the registration will still appear on your experience page, but the purchase option will no longer be enabled.
