This is a guide for using Sched to collect registrations / sign ups for your event.
Set the privacy of your event to allow attendees to register for your event directly on Sched:
If an attendee has signed in but has not registered for an event, a registration popup will appear for any events with registration turned on. This feature applies to events that offer ticket sales, whether the tickets are free or require payment. It allows event organizers to ensure that all attendees complete the event’s registration form.

Attendees can add unlimited sessions of any kind if no tickets are created and no ticket rules are set up. If you have groups or segments of attendees that have access to days or activity types, set up tickets and create ticket rules to limit what attendees can add to their personal schedules.
To add your event tickets
1. Go to Control Panel > Registration
2. Toggle on the ‘Enable Registration‘ button under the Registration Form tab
3. Click Tickets and choose Sched (as your ticketing platform) then click on the “+” button to add your first ticket
4. Click ” add ticket”
Once you have set your ticket types, you can now customize each ticket.
1. Click on the added ticket that you’d like to customize.
2. Ticket Name and Description – Enter your preferred ticket name and add your ticket description.
3. Ticket Key – If you want to assign a specific ticket to an attendee using the attendee spreadsheet, you can use a unique ticket key per ticket which you can later input in the ‘Ticket‘ column in your attendee spreadsheet.
4. Start/Stop Sales – Set the start and end date for the ticket selling.
5. Quantity – Set the number of tickets that you want to sell.
Note: If you don’t set a number of tickets available, that will automatically mean that it is unlimited.
6. Price – You can set the price for the ticket, but when the field is blank, it means your ticket is for FREE.
Important: You’ll need to connect to your Stripe account before you can set the ticket prices and start selling them!
7. Click on the ‘Save Ticket‘ button.
Note: Video shows ticket type that was set to unlimited and free and one ticket type that is paid and has limited slots. This will also show how the ticket type will appear on the attendee’s end.
Ticket warnings are shown when an attendee doesn’t have permission to add a session due to ticket rules. You may customize your own ticket warnings or use the default warnings we have in this feature.
Set Your Ticket Wanings
1. Go to Control Panel > Registration
2. Click Tickets > “…” button on the upper right part
3. Customize Ticket warning
4. Click Save
There are two possible messages that show, depending on if they hit the set ticket limit or if they don’t have a ticket at all.
1. Ticket Warning: Count Exceeded
If an attendee has used up their session allotment.
Sample pop-up message:
You’ve reached the limit for this activity type.
Please unschedule an existing activity if you’d like to add this one.
2. Ticket Warning: No Ticket
If an attendee doesn’t have the correct ticket.
Sample pop-up message:
Adding this requires a ticket.
Contact the event organizer for ticket details
and try adding this again after you obtain one.
Attendees can add unlimited sessions if no ticket rules are set. You can set ticket rules to limit ticket holders from what sessions they are allowed to access. They could be limited to by days, activity types, or by the number of sessions. Add rules for all ticket types, if you add them for one.
You can limit rules by Day, Type, Number of Sessions, and Number of Sessions For Selected Days and you can also add multiple rules under one ticket.
Scenario: The event organizer wants the General Admission ticket holders to only be allowed to pick 2 sessions across October 5, 2022, under Keynote and Workshop session types only.
*See where to set rules, and the ticket rule settings for this scenario in this video.
To view the list of ticket holders per ticket, you may go to the Ticket Holder section under the Registration tab. And in the same section, you can also view the total number of tickets sold per ticket.
You can also send messages to all the ticket holders through the mail icon here:
Collect payment from attendees when they register for your event. To use this feature first create an account with Stripe (or use an existing account) and then connect this with your Sched event. Stripe is a world-leading payment processing platform that processes payments on your behalf. Sched is integrated with Stripe to allow your attendees to quickly and seamlessly pay your event registration fee. View the the list of countries where Stripe is available at stripe.com/global.
Note: Connecting to Stripe for payments is available on the Essentials, Plus, and Premium plans. Also additional fees apply (see further details below).
Things To Keep In Mind
All ticket fees will reflect in your Stripe account that is linked to your event. To know more about withdrawing ticket sales, please contact Stripe directly.
Or watch it in action here:
Restrict sign-up and login to your event to those with specified email domains (eg. @yourorganization.com).
