Event presets

April 28, 2015 4:00 pm, Published by

When you have a number of similar events to create, it can be both time consuming and just a bit frustrating to update event settings in the same way again and again.  As part of our ever improving software, we have come up with a new feature to avoid this.

We have rolled out Event presets, a way of saving your favourite event settings and then applying them whenever necessary.  With the ability to set-up a range of presets, you now have predefined event type settings ready to use.


Full Day Preset


You can prescribe the following settings in a preset

  • Schedule type (basic, recurring, or advanced)
  • Start and end time
  • Duration
  • Website content (summary and special event note)
  • Minimum and maximum registration limits
  • Registration method (e.g. order process or quick registration)
  • Registration form (fields)
  • Event logistics (room setup and catering)
  • Email reminders

Agile Testing

April 10, 2015 7:45 pm, Published by

One of the ‘down sides’ to working in a company dealing in Training & Event management is you get to see an incredible number of courses that you want to attend.  The up side is we do get to ‘test out’ our clients from time to time.

Rebecca, one of our Testers, got such an opportunity when she attended a course on Agile Testing run by Assurity.  In her words:

It was great – incredibly informative and Katrina kept what could have been a very long course engaging and interesting. There was a lot of excellent information and I’m looking forward to applying it to how our teams at Arlo work.

One of the key areas of the course focused on Performance Testing, which is not just testing the functionality of what we’re developing, but essentially how it runs.  Does it run fast when it needs to?  Can it handle as many active users as we expect?  What about spikes? And so on.  It was great to hear how we are incorporating this as well as other aspects of the training in our own development.

Having one of our own have such a great experience with one of our clients, I couldn’t help but wonder how they felt about us

We chose Arlo as our Training and Event Management SAAS when we launched Assurity’s Education Unit in 2013. It’s been rock solid and has enterprise quality to it. Our web team have had no major issues integrating it into our web properties. We’ve been able to create a seamless look and feel , it easily handles any tactical promotions we want to run and, from an operational perspective, Arlo gives us confidence to deliver to our customers.

So, if you’re interested in improving software delivery in your business, Assurity have a range of courses that embed new skills and confidence in your team. Find out more here

New Report – Order Lines Report

April 8, 2015 4:19 pm, Published by

As much as we like our Orders report and the information it offers clients, we wanted to step it up and provide you with the ability to drill down to even greater levels of usable data.

As part of our latest release, one of the updates we know a lot of you are excited about is the new Order Lines Report.  This has been created to enable reporting on Order information, including breaking down any order lines in the order as well as payment and registrant details.

Example of Order Lines Report output

By default a start date will be in both the Order created and Order paid settings, however either of these can be removed.  You can choose to look at orders by when they were created, when they were paid, or a combination of the two.

Order Lines Report Settings
As you can see there are a number of options for what details you’d like to include.  We do recommend using Group by ‘Order Code’ as this will group all order lines associated with a particular order together.

You can find more information on the Order Lines Report in our Help Article here

We’d love to know your thoughts on this new report, which can be left in the comments below.
