Our product strategy is very much trend aware,
keeping in touch with all the latest technical
developments. Expect to hear more from us over the
coming weeks and months to keep you and your Actravia
installation up to date.
Actravia features ActraviaML, a form definition and
processing language using XML. ActraviaML supports many
different form controls and processing functions that
can be used to customize the registration process.
Actravia supports integration with 3rd party payment
gateways. By default we support PayPal but we also have
plug-ins for Authorize.NET, Payfast and Worldpay.
Actravia also supports dynamic loading of the gateway
interface (more details below under the extensibility
section). You can also specify a
payment account on a per module instance or per event
Either in template or classic mode, registration can
be specified as single or multi, allow registration for
individuals or groups to be managed on an event by event
Create limited registration that allows events to be
made only available to authenticated users with specific
roles. You can also choose to allow different pricing
and payment options to specific roles, for example
setting different prices for different member types, or allowing members to be
invoiced instead of paying online.
Create selectable options for your registrations.
Options support pricing, selection limits, quantities
or single select. Choose whether or not an option
applies to a group or an individual.
User Select Pricing
Actravia supports user selectable pricing
where the person purchasing selects the price they want
for a registrant, e.g. Adult/Child or Student/Member
etc. Selectable pricing can be enforced by security role
or open, where the user chooses.
Using Actravia in form mode allows you to use an
ActraviaML template as a standalone form for your
website. Forms are served with the next upcoming
registration form being presented by the module without
dates or other descriptions being displayed.
We realise that not everyone uses the same terminology
for events. With Actravia you can customize key phrases
within the application to suit your needs, helping you
communicate with your audience (members, students
etc...) the way you need to.
Talk to us about implementing our Facebook social
tools. Expose each event descriptor separately to the
Facebook social graph, enabling embedded Facebook
search. Integrate directly into Facebook using Actravia
in reference mode, providing both a web and a Facebook
page presence for your Actravia app.
Generate RSS feeds from your Actravia module which
can be used to feed lists on your own website or
directly into 3rd party sites or other RSS clients such as
Reference mode is a powerful feature of Actravia,
allowing a module instance in another portal to list and
accept bookings directly on behalf of a source module.
Registration templates can be customized for the
reference template so that the process can be tailored
to suit the reference portal to support different
ActraviaML supports post registration processing via
HTTP GET/POST. Use variable tokens to retrieve
information from the registration such as names, id,
email address etc. Great for linking with 3rd party CRM,
or other external system.
ActraviaML also adds the ability to call a series of
SQL Stored Procedure with tokenized parameters, allowing
a further level of post registration processing.
Life can get complicated if different pricing rules
apply to your bookings when users can select
different requirements like subsidies, tax rates, etc.
Actravia provides a facility to develop your own logic
to modify an order during the booking process where you
can query the required rules and properties and modify
your pricing accordingly.
Actravia supports plug-in payment processors which
are dynamically loaded at run time. Payment processors
can work as a redirect or as a direct API call. We currently support
PayPal, Authorise.NET, Worldpay (Beta) and Payfast. Talk
to us if you wish to integrate with another gateway or
need support developing your own.
Customization is at the heart of Actravia so with
Actravia you can define new fields and settings without
the need to make changes to the database. Define custom
properties for event types where you need to display
extended information in templates or results lists, or
to act as variables in any of the extensions or APIs.
In addition you can store extended information for
any registration simply by declaring it in an ActraviaML
template, and retrieve the information later onscreen,
in email or in process using tokens or the Actravia DB
Module settings can also be extended to support new
features and functionality. For example, payment
processors typically have their own settings for
merchant information, as does our Facebook integration
for Application ID. Using custom module settings,
modules instances are extended to support these
