We cannot stress the importance of testing your event registration form enough. This is your chance to see if something is out of place, doesn’t flow right or if you have just plain forgot something.
To test your form, click the ‘View Icon’ icon from any page.
This will open your form in a new browser window.
While in test mode you may process as many test registration as you would like. The url of the form and the way it behaves will be the same when you make it live. You will notice that your form will also display a TEST MODE note in the social media bar located at the bottom of your webpage.
You may enter a maximum of 15 test registrations into a test form. If you reach the maximum you can delete some and keep testing.
Receiving Confirmation Emails
To get a truly real-world experience when testing your form, make sure you have your desired confirmation emails enabled. The testing email address will receive the emails as a normal registrant would when you make your form live.
If you have added any merge tags to your email these will populate as normal with the relevant information from the test registration.
Are you not receiving your test confirmation emails? This could be why.
Testing Forms with Payment Processing
If you have an ecommerce gateway linked to your event so you can process credit cards, you will need to obtain the test credit card number.
- If you are using the Event Wizard Payment Gateway (DotCom Your Event Inc.) the following information can be used for testing.
Card Number – 4111 1111 1111 1111
Expiration Date – Use the default month and year that are on the credit card form
Security Code – 111
- If you are using another payment gateway you must contact your provider to obtain the testing card number for their payment gateway. View our list of payment processing partners.
Viewing Test Reports
Your reports will populate as normal when you are in test mode. To view your reports click the Reports icon from anywhere within your event’s edit menu.
Please note: Event Wizard does not back-up any test data. When you want to make your form live you will require a positive registration balance in your account.
Once you have completed your form testing it’s time to make your event registration form live!
