Direct Links with options

Guide for adding Variables to Links.

Standard link: https://www.vantora.com/paintball/YourField/registration/

To use variables add default.asp to the end of your standard link:

https://www.vantora.com/paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp

 

To Link to a Package

To run a direct link to a Package, go to Settings –>Registration –> Packages

Click on the Direct Link at the far right of the package you want, and it will just to the registration for that package, and if you look at the browser bar URL, you will see a link like:

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?pid=59

Note: after the page populates, it may add a  #/ to the end of the URL

https://www.vantora.com/paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?pid=59#/

You can remove the #/ from the link you are going to create.

Link to a Package on a Particular Day


To run a direct link to a Package on a Particular Day, go to Setting –> Registration –> Available Dates

Mouse over the day of the event, then for each package listed on that day, you will see there is a Direct Link option. Click on it and you will see something like:

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?pid=8942

Basically the same as the other link, but typically with a larger number. This is very useful for something like a Scenario game where you only have that package available for 1 day. Also used for classes, clinics, tournaments, etc.

Force a Quantity into a Package

You may have a situation where you really want to make your package the thing that is booked – not the number of players. Or a package like a 3 man tournament, and you want to force them to book 3. This is easy to do by adding a &qty= variable to the link. Lets take an example of wanting a package on a particular day with just one person. Take the direct link, make sure you remove the #/ from the end of it, and then add &qty=1 so it would look like:

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?pid=8942&qty=1

That will open up the page and ask for the email only, skipping the quantity, forcing it to 1.

Add Referral Tracking


You can create a referral tracking link and add it to any link with ref= plus a variable. For example, lets assume you are running your scenario game, and you want to put a direct link to it on a facebook post, and you want to know see how well that post or add is doing for you. You create any variable you want, lets choose FB3 as perhaps this is your third face book ad, and you simple add the &ref=FB3 to the link after removing the #/ so your link would look like

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?pid=8942&ref=FB1

You will be able to check any reservation by clicking on the square yellow contact info button and see the Referral where you find their phone number, email, and ip address. It will also show up in the referral reports.

Proper Usage of Variables

Variables must be placed after the default.asp at the end of a link. If you are just running a standard link such as

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/

and you want to add a referral code, you must add the default.asp? and skip the &, such as

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?ref=FB1

So following the default.asp, you have to put a ? then the first code, then if using multiple, you add them with & and the next, the order does not matter. As an example:

A link to a direct package with a set quantity of 5, and showing a referral from our 5th email might be:

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?pid=8942&qty=5&ref=email5

but you could also swap the variable placement to be

https://www.vantora.com/Paintball/YourField/registration/default.asp?pid=8942&ref=email5&qty=1
