General Settings Tab¶
The following settings are located under the Settings > General tab for every Involvement.
Enter a room number or other location name, but keep it short. The Location displays on several Excel exports, on the Enrollment Control Report, on roll sheets and other places. When the Involvement is used for the online registration type User Selects Involvement, the location will display beside the Involvement name in the dropdown menu. If you are using this as a Master Involvement, you will leave the Location blank.

If you are using the Involvement for normal online registration, the Description does not appear anywhere on the registration itself.
