We've got some brand new features and enhancements to announce, so make sure your shoes are tied because we just might blow your socks off.
First and foremost, our brand-new Text Messaging platform is now live and ready for you to use. If you're not utilizing text messaging for your event, you could be leaving big opportunities and even bigger sums of money on the table. Text messaging has an astounding 98% open rate and could be your best strategy this year to boost sales and engagement.
Increase sales significantly by sending mass text messages to past attendees, keeping them informed about new events, seasonal offers, or limited-time flash sales. Alternatively, enhance attendee engagement before and after an upcoming event by sending reminders, providing directions, or requesting post-event survey feedback.

6 Additional Enhancements & Updates
1: Custom Tracking Links
Generate unique URLs to your registration page that let you track the source of your sales. So whether you want to track your website, affiliates, referrals, influencers, email blasts, text messages, or your grandma’s Facebook post, you can create custom links for every channel.
Best of all, you can embed pricing rules, discounts, and conditionally show any registration option using actions.
2: QR Code Generator
QR codes are more popular than frosted tips back in the 90s. And while you thought QR codes were just a thing during COVID, they are hanging around longer than your mother-in-law after the family bbq. QR codes make it easy for attendees to quickly get to your registration page.
RegFox now has a fast, friendly, and free way to generate a QR code for your registration page. You can even add your own logo to the QR code. Now in your page builder, under “Promote”, you can generate a QR code, including your logo, that directs to your registration page.See how it works here.
3: Custom Message when Password Protecting a Page
We enhanced the feature for password-protecting your page with the ability to specify a custom message too. So instead of your attendees guessing why the page is password protected and trying password1 several times, you can communicate how and when they can access the page.
4: Payout Screen Beautification
We modernized and beautified the payouts reporting screen when using Wepay for payments. You can now directly download your event payout details from any summary page and we included additional messaging when your payout had adjustments such as chargeback fees, holds, or other payout modifications.
5: Updated Registrant Reporting with Passing Along Fees
When passing along the fees to your attendees, our registrant reporting would previously only show the amount paid to you. We have improved this to show the total amount any registrant has paid (inclusive of fees passed along) and itemize it in the exports as well.
6: Google Analytics 4 Support (GA4)
The big guys over at Google are sunsetting their former version of Google Analytics in favor of GA4, as the kids call it. In anticipation of this move, we have jumped ahead and the analytics tracking supports the legacy format and also the latest GA4 format.
Things that are in the works and coming ...
Stay tuned for next week as we officially launch our brand new email communication center including automations which empower you to create high converting drip email campaigns. Watch your inbox for the news of that soon.
But wait, there's more...
We can confirm rumors that we are working on updates to our on-site badge printing process, attendee app, and also multi-language support. More details will be coming on each of these in the coming weeks. We have so much in store and hope you are as excited as we are.
Until then, we appreciate you and are thankful we get to build the best registration company in the world alongside you. Let us know if we can help you in any way.
