Registration Deadlines

Most often, families are registering at the last minute, especially on Sunday night. We have made some changes to allow you to take registrations right up until the session start time, if that is your preference.

The values and definitions for "Stop Accepting Registrations" are as follows. The new definitions allow you to take registrations for an a longer period.

Setting Previous definition New definition
When session starts The night before session start date at 11:59pm. So if the session starts in July 27 at 9:00 am, it will stop accepting registrations at July 26, 11:59pm Session start time on the session start date. So if the session starts in July 27 at 9:00 am, it will stop accepting registrations at July 27, 9:00am
When session ends The night before session end date at 11:59pm Session end time on the session end date
Number of days before session starts At 12:00am, the specified # of days before the session start date. So if the session starts on Monday, and this value is set to 4 days, it will stop accepting registrations on Thursday morning at 12:00am. At 11:59pm the specified # of days before the session start date. So if the session starts on Monday, and this value is set to 4 days, it will stop accepting registrations on Thursday night at 11:59pm.
Number of days before session ends At 12:00am, the specified # of days before the session end date. So if the session ends on Friday, and this value is set to 1 day, it will stop accepting registrations on Thursday morning at 12:00am. At 11:59PM the specified # of days before session end date. So if the session ends on Friday, and this value is set to 1 day, it will stop accepting registrations on Thursday night at 11:59pm.

In most cases, we have updated your settings to behave the same way as the previous definition, but we encourage you to double check your settings. You can view or edit your registration deadline by going to your Dashboard's Sessions & Spots Manager. From there, click on the Registration Open text to see your setting for "Stop Accepting Registrations."



If you want to change your settings for more than one session, you can use the Bulk Edit feature by selecting multiple sessions, then click the "Bulk Edit" button. You can select "Registration Start & End Dates" and to change the setting for all the selected sessions.

The default values for registration deadlines are based on the type of activity. If you want your setting different than these defaults, you can change the value for "Stop Accepting Registrations" on the Activity Description tab. 

Activity Type Default Value for "Stop Accepting Registrations"
Online One day before session starts 
Camp 4 days before session starts
Class 10 days before session ends
Event When session starts
Birthday 10 days before session ends


For online activities, we recommend that you add your meeting link in the "Additional Session Details" section. This will include your link in the registration confirmation email.
