First, set up online registrations for both attendees and volunteers using a Detailed Signup. When you create the signup, you will be prompted to set the name and the first date/time of the event.
Add the selections based on pricing and how you plan to group kids during the event, such as teams or classes organized by age or grade group. You can also add a selection for volunteers.
When you're creating your selections, choose which fields of important personal information you want to collect about the attendees that will be using each selection. This information will update their People profile.
From the Settings tab in the Manage tab, add times for your entire schedule for the week of VBS. These times will show up on the event itself.
If you typically break people into teams at VBS, you can set up assignments with filters. If you're using the integration with Check-Ins to take attendance or print labels, these assignment areas will be made into the check-in locations in Check-Ins, which allows people to check in to the right "place" and even have that "place" printed on their nametag.
To assign people based on the filters set up for each assignment area, go to the Unassigned tab, and then click Auto Assign.
Finish setting up your event, and open it for people to register!
