Auto-open entries

JAN 2013

You can now automatically open your event for entries at a particular date and time - you might use this if you want to list your event right away but aren't ready to accept entries yet, or if you want to co-ordinate the 'launch date' of your event with an advertising push. 

Or perhaps you just want to open entries in the middle of the night ;)

It's straightforward, just go to Event Settings > Edit open/close times:

Once you've set the open time for entries, your event page looks like this:

Once the start time rolls around we'll start accepting entries automatically.

You might also want to set up a pre-entry waiting list so potential entrants can register their interest in advance.
