Bi-Directional Syncing: Registration Items
Registration Items can be synced from both the event record in your Salesforce org and from Guidebook. This is called bi-directional syncing.
Sync Registration Item to Guidebook
Any Registration Item you create and save for an event that is synced with Guidebook will automatically create a record in Guidebook when it’s saved.
Create a Registration Item from a registered Attendee record for an event synced with Guidebook and save it. This new Registration Item record will be synced with Guidebook upon clicking the Save button.
Create Schedule Job
To create a Registration Item in Guidebook and sync it from Guidebook to your Fonteva org, you’ll need to first schedule a job with the following name:
Schedule Job Name: ScheduleForRegistrationItem.
Sync Registration Item from Guidebook to Salesforce
You’ll create the Registration Item from your synced event in Guidebook under Audience Management > Preset Schedules. All Registration Items will display there.
Create your Registration Item under Preset Schedules and then run the ScheduleForRegistrationItem batch job. The item record will sync from Guidebook to your org’s associated Attendee record.
