Alternate Events

In FSDirect, you can create an Alternate Event when there is a change to the details of a particular event date on a schedule that has already been activated. An Alternate Event allows you to make a change to the location, room, time, or date of a single event within a schedule. This is usually done after the schedule has been activated. *Note: If a change needs to be made to a schedule that is still inactive, you may be able to simply change the details on the schedule form without using an Alternate Event.

 

     The Dude Says:

When an alternate event is created for a schedule that has not been activated, the schedule will be treated as an active schedule. This means certain items on the schedule, such as the room and event time, will be locked in and cannot be changed. The schedule, however, can be canceled and a new one entered using the Renew feature.
