You can change the status of the events by selecting Initiated or Active.

Set a minimum and maximum number of participants for the previous selected event dates. Further you can set the number of slots of the waiting list.

Example for quotas:

You have a big event with 50 slots and you want to reserve for different departments. Select a criterion, for which you want to give a quota, for example: division. Under description you enter “Sales%” for example and a number of slots (10), which you want to reserve for employees from the division sales. Thus ten employees from the division sales% can register to this event and 40 slots are now available for all other divisions. If you want to register more employees to the division sales, you have to increase the quota.

You can create multiple quotas for an event date and you can use placeholder like % for description. This includes all divisions, groups etc., which begins with sales (sales north, sales south etc.).

With the description, you can enter additional information regarding an event date that will be displayed in the team leader area.

Stipulate an external reference and an external reference type.

External references are used for organizing and for linking to other systems. This you can use for manual assignments and on using interfaces, for example: REST API. You can search for external reference in the advanced filter function.
The external reference represents a reference value like ID, serial number or name. The external reference type describes which reference it is and how to understand the reference value. This is very important, if there are different sources or types of references, which use the same reference values.

Reference type SAP customer number with the external reference 100234
Reference type SAP user ID with the external reference 000004
