A new module is available on the CMS that allows you to collect tweets based from a hashtag. The module is called the Twitter Hashtag Module, and will automatically collect tweets with specific hashtags.
As an example - Let's say you are having an event called the GVSU Walk-A-Thon. You can ask your participants to tweet using #gvsuwalk, and then display those tweets using the Twitter Hashtag Module.
To learn more about this module, a How To video is available for you to watch.

In the Form Builder, Administrators can write comments within an individuals response. These notes are only visible to administrators, and it is a great way to keep notes about a person who has submitted the form.
When you go into the Form Builder, you click on the response - You can scroll to the bottom of the response and create notes. Any responses with a comment will show in the event responses.
You can also be e-mailed whenever a comment is made by changing the option on the form settings page.

You can now have the early bird registration cut off based on the number of people registered.
As an example, you could use this if you want to offer a discount to the first 10 people registered for an event.
Now when you select a payment option from the Form builder | Settings, | Payment Options, you will have an option for "Will there be an early bird discount limited to a number of registrations?".
Something important to note - If a person signs up with a guest, the guest will also get the early bird discount. However, the addition guests do NOT count towards the early bird registration number.
