MIE WebLink vs
Standard HTML Registration Pages
Options for Receiving Registrations Over the Internet
The Summit Event Manager programs have a built in Internet Interface that enables registrations collected on the Internet to be imported automatically into an event file provided that they are e-mailed to you in a specific format. The registration e-mails can be generated by an MIE WebLink registration page or by a standard HTML registration page that you either write yourself or get a web page designer to write for you - ensuring that the e-mails sent to you from the registration page are in the format described in the intdev.pdf document available on our web site.
