Feature Spotlight

Online Events Cap Management & Waitlists [New Feature] [Events]: PlusPlus now supports the same functionalities for online and in-person events. That includes per-event cap management and waitlists. The documentation on how these new features work is available in our "How to separate online and local Enrollments for Events" guide.

Special Attention

Required Event Update Message [ACTION REQUIRED] [Events] [Notifications]: We currently have the option of adding an optional message in the Event Update email. This message field will keep being optional, but every customer’s email template for Event Update should consider the new message tag. If your company hasn’t customized this email, we’re going to update your template automatically. If it does customize this template, Admins should modify them to support the message tag. The change is going to happen on August 31.

New Event Reminder for Waitlisted Users [ACTION REQUIRED] [Events] [Notifications]: Our Event Reminders were sent to both Enrolled Users and Waitlisted Users. This behavior has led to confusion, so we decided to have a separate reminder for Waitlisted Users. If your company uses the event reminders, they will stop being sent to Waitlisted Users, and one of the admins will need to activate this new Event Reminder for Waitlisted Users in case you want to keep using it.


Program Sessions support for Multiple Attendees [New Feature] [Programs]: Now it’s possible to create sessions with multiple attendees at the same time. The experience is a lot like in events, so hosts, program managers, and admins will have access to a roster where they can manage the attendees and check each attendee’s agenda. The full documentation on how the one-to-many programs work is available in our "How to create and manage sessions with multiple attendees" guide.

Enrollment Method Conversions [New Feature] [Events]: Previously, PlusPlus had no way of changing the attendance method of events after users started signing up for them. Now event organizers can do the conversion between In-person and Online and vice-versa through the event form. The documentation on how this new feature work is available in our "How to switch and merge enrollments and enrollment methods for events" guide.

Themes improvements [Improvement] [Platform]: We did a color study with our current themes and implemented small adjustments to improve accessibility and user experience.
