You can list your events using a variety of methods. Upcoming list gives you a default list where each event is chronologically displayed along with a booking link. Custom schedule display allows you to use tokenized html templates for an event type or alternatively build your own. Every event and event type list is accessible via parameterized URL.
Pro edition supercategory tools allow you a cross category collection of events and event types, giving you a comprehensive linkable hierarchy collection of supercategory->category->event type->scheduled event. The supercategory module allows you to use image links and create tokenized list templates to display results.
Actravia supports a range of navigation options for your website to direct users to your registration pages. Use calendar, upcoming list, supercategory, DNN search or the power search tools to assist your users find and book easily. Even if the booking is to take place on an external system, or indeed direct them to call instead, you can easily customize the booking links to redirect when appropriate.
Actravia has many calendar features. Apart from a visual calendar overview of the events in the system, you can also allow users to download an .ics file for all events, an event type or an individual event.
Actravia will automatically warn you when you are double booking on a venue, ensuring that you don't have conflicts. For administrators you can also download a calendar for a venue, giving you a clear overview of the utilisation level.
Actravia provides support for the DNN search engine providing template search functionality so that you can book directly from the search results page. You can also customize the search results to suit the event properties you wish to display.
In addition, the pro-edition powersearch tool allows for drill down search by date, category & location which links to your pre-defined search results template.
Actravia can be configured to automate booking responses when a registration occurs, optionally notifying all participants, the booking party, the event administrator and your finance department. You can also notify your administrator via SMS using the Clickatel SMS gateway API, helping you respond quickly and communicate effectively with your customers and your internal team.
Using the Clickatel SMS service, Actravia supports the ability to send once-off bulk SMS messages to your event participants. Great for instant notifications of late news where you need to inform people in a hurry, e.g. change of venue, cancellations, etc.
With Actravia you can create a stock of email templates (fully tokenized) that can be used to automatically generate ad-hoc emails to all or selected participants. With a single click you can bulk mail all participants for an individual event, saving you time and effort and improving communications.
Actravia supports printing templates using ActraviaML to allow you to retrieve registration details in a printable form which you can use as required to maintain a paper record of your attendees or to generate forms for signature.

On Trend - Mobile & Social
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 basis.
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 basis.
Public / Private
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.
Facebook Social Tools
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 Microsoft Outlook.
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 website layouts.
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, other modules 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 API.
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 features.
