In addition to using registration forms, you can upload registration information directly to EventHub and send emails leading to the event page (video viewing page). This feature can be used when you want to use another system's registration form instead of EventHub's forms.
Users who have been registered through Excel will receive an email inviting them to the event page, and they will only need to set a password to enter. There will be no need for the user to enter their information twice.

5. Check the correct file has been entered and click 'Add' to upload your spreadsheet.
<tips>If there are any errors in the Excel file, you will not be able to upload it. If an error message appears, it may not state what the specific issue is, so please check the following points and try to upload your file again.
- Are there any unnecessary extra sheets or columns?
- Are there any unnecessary spaces? Any spaces that exist in the profile fields must also be entered in the Excel. If there are any missing, an error will occur.
- Are all of the email address correct, and don't contain any extra characters or symbols?
- Is your Excel named "participant"?</tips>
If you are uploading more than once, you won't have to delete the information you previously entered. EventHub uses your email address to check that you are not uploading duplicate information.
2. Sending invitation emails
After uploading the Excel file, a notice will be displayed above the User List stating how many participants have yet to be sent their invitation email. You can click the button to the right of the notice to send emails.
Participant information will be registered in the database by uploading the Excel file, however the invitation email will not have been sent to the users yet, so you can do this by clicking the 'Send invitation email' button in the top right of the screen. The users can access the log in screen from the URL in the invitation email, and will be directed to set up their password so that they can access the event.
