We have occasionally seen teams use the same online registration running for years, trying to decrease the workload required to start a new one each year. Some administrators have deleted all the registrations from the previous year to keep the same one going, however, there is a better way and it's actaully less work!
Fortunately, SwimOffice has a wonderful tool to make starting a new registration each year really easy: cloning. You simply edit last year's registration, update the data, click Save Changes to a New Registration (Clone) in the lower left, and set the new one as current.
You can follow the steps in TU University to learn how to clone a registration. This ensures you retain all information from previous registrations, and prevents the current registration from getting unwieldy with too many members from several years.
We hope you have a successful registration in 2018, and if you need any help with setting up your registrations, adding payment processing or any other questions please use the ? in the bottom right hand corner of your site or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
