Student Registration - Active Dates for Sections

If you have a program with sections that open for registration at different times, you can use the Active Dates feature to hide sections and have them open/close automatically on the date of your choice.

For example, let’s say your high school and middle school sports are set up on the same program. You can open your program on August 10th, but might not allow the middle school sports to be registered for until August 17th -- you can set your middle school sports so that they do not become active, meaning available to be registered for, until August 17th.

You can also use the Active Dates feature in other areas of Arbiter Registration, such as Section Options and Add-ons, which can help you further customize how you want the different aspects of your program page to appear for participants.

1. Log in to your Arbiter Registration organization account (formerly FamilyID) and select Programs from the blue navigation menu.

2. Click Edit on the program you’re wanting to update. 

3. Select tab 2, Sections.

4. Click Create New Section or Edit on an existing section.

5. Make sure to fill in all the required fields in your section. Required fields are marked with a red asterisk.

Note: Section dates refer to the dates the offering runs through. So, if the Football season runs from August 17th - November 20th, you’d input those dates.


6. Scroll to the bottom and checkmark the Active Dates box.

7. Input the dates the section should be able to be registered for. Input a Start and End Date, or just a Start Date or just an End Date. Click the Save button.

8. Sections with Active Dates will show the dates in the Sections tab. 

9. Save at the bottom of the page to save your updates.
