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

  1. Right click anywhere on the calendar
  2. Select Export

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.

How can I measure my Con Ed?

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:
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:
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:
or, perhaps more importantly, who hasn’t done OW:
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

Can I set up automatic discounts for my Club Members

First, a discountable Customer Type of Club Member
should be set up. Go to Data / Customer Types / Find to do this and place a check in the Discountable? box
Please note that clicking Forward will reveal pictures accurately if they don’t display properly here.
Then, click on the Discounts tab, then Add, then select which Stock Types
and which Discount Band you wish to apply:
Customers of that type will then automatically receive a discount of the specified amount when they purchase any of those items from you.
To create Discount Bands in general, go to Inventory / Discount Bands / New and then create the appropriate discount:
The formulae are based on RP meaning Retail Price or TP meaning Trade Price.
Theses should be surrounded by square brackets – [ ] – and then the appropriate percentage added or subtracted.
For those items in Packages, you can either just not select Packages as a stock type that bears a discount… if you have packages in a separate stock type.
If not, you’ll need to go to each of the package stock items and manually set the price to the same as the standard retail price

How do I produce Instructor Invoices for a course

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
On any course, from the Toolbox at the bottom of the course screen select the Options button – crossed hammer and spanner – and choose Calculate Staff Module Costs.
Then print Instructor Invoice.
