Site Administrators can configure a range of settings to make it easier to set up seminars.

Firstly, Site Administrators can change the global settings for seminar activities across your site. Administrators can change approval settings, configure event roles, determine which information is shown, and more. Additionally you can change the settings for which notifications will be sent to attendees regarding upcoming events, cancellations, and waitlists.

Administrators can also set the defaults for the seminar activity type. You can set when attendance is tracked, determine how seminars are graded, and set a passing grade if required. Furthermore, you can enable manager reservations.

You can also configure the event defaults to minimise the duplication of effort when creating a large number of seminar events. For example, you can set default start/finish times, minimum bookings, the number of days between start and finish dates, and so on. If you have a lot of similar events it is worth configuring your default event settings.

As a Site Administrator you can also view a list of all seminar events across the site on the seminar administration dashboard.
