The example below looks at divers converting from DSD to Open Water.
In the Customer Search Wizard look for those who have done DSD this year:
FAQCourses21.1.jpg
On the Results page, select all and then right click and add them to a Mailing List – useful here and in the Agent later – as below:
FAQCourses21.2.jpg
You now have a Mailing List of DSD 2017, for example, that you can use for all kinds of things – marketing, reporting, sales, etc.
One thing you can do is to see who has done OW:
FAQCourses21.3.jpg
and:
FAQCourses21.4.jpg
or, perhaps more importantly, who hasn’t done OW:
FAQCourses21.5.jpg
So, in the example above, of 1487 doing DSD, 40 did OW, 1447 haven’t yet. And I can immediately send a MailChimp campaign to these 1447

You can configure EVE to calculate the amount you pay each instructor for teaching a module on a course. Before doing this you need to enter data into this section to define how those amounts will be calculated. For each module type and instructor you can define two figures:
• Base Cost (Pre Tax): the amount the instructor will get just for teaching the module.
• Additional Cost per Customer: an additional amount the instructor will get for each customer that attends the module

To export your EVE Calendar to Google Calendar, please proceed as follows:

  1. Right click anywhere on the calendar
  2. Select Export
  3. Select the option you see fit for the purpose
  4. Click OK

 

This solution offers a static calendar integration and a new file will have to be uploaded each time you create a new course or modify the current calendar. For a dynamic solution, that synchronizes with your EVE database to display courses and trips in real time on an EVE website, then we recommend upgrading to EVE Enterprise.
