11 Killer Features

Events & Sessions

Create, manage, and sell one-time, multi-date, and recurring single-venue and multi-venue events.

Each event may have one or more upcoming, cancelled, and completed sessions. Each session may contain one or more date and time spans, have its own instructor, seat availability, price adjustment, and notes.

Instructors

Assign instructors to sessions and list all event instructors on the event page in a respective tab.

Create a separate instructor page with a SEO-friendly URL slug with instructor’s name, photo, bio, and email, and a list of respective classes, paginated.

Wait Lists

Allow logged-in users to sign up for a wait list of a sold-out session and be notified if it becomes available again.

Reminders

Confirm event registrations and notify customers of upcoming, changed, or cancelled sessions.

Send reminder emails with information on session location, date and time. Ask your customers to fill post-session questionnaires.

Zoom integration

Sell online events that are held in Zoom and make your instructors hosts of the event in question.

Notify your customers and instructors of the upcoming event in advance and share their personal link to the Zoom meeting via email, or let them join the online session via the link in their account in your Magento store.

Attendance

Manage event attendees. Export .csv file of the list of customers after each event or for all events.

Calendar

Display events and sessions as a calendar with monthly, weekly, and daily modes. Export events to .ics.

Categorization

Categorize events by assigning them to native Magento product categories.

Locations

Specify locations of your event sessions and filter events by location.

Related products

Suggest your customers to purchase a related product for any event.

Featured reviews

It’s been a great program to help manage classes and events across our 13 locations

Event Management has greatly improved how we manage classes

Features like Automatic Registration Expiration, Multiple Location Support, Wait Lists, and Flexible Session Management have really opened up time in our marketing department when adding, editing, and managing our classes. Our customers love the My Classes page because it allows them to manage their own schedules and waitlist registrations – even if they register at one of our stores.

We wanted an extremely stable extension that performed well and was easy to customize

Staylime displayed a strong desire to create an optimized product. Their team’s professionalism struck me the most — they were excellent communicators and focused on building a great product and making their customers happy.

FAQ

If you have questions or suggestions feel free to drop us a line at [email protected]

  • Does Event Management require Magento to run?

    Yes, Event Management requires Magento 2.3+ to run. If you don’t have a Magento website we can help build you one.

  • Can we give our instructors access to the rosters for their events?

    Yes, you can give instructors access to rosters, using Magento’s user roles management.

  • Can registration be closed at a certain point before the event starts?

    Yes, we have very flexible settings for this. You can set registration to close (preventing any new registrations from being made) right when the class starts, or at any interval before or after that. You can even keep it open an hour or two after the class starts to be able to add anyone who just shows up.

  • How do wait lists work?

    If a class session is full, customers will be able to add their names (and contact info) to a wait list. Once space opens up you can contact them and encourage them to register.
