MBOS PHRF Demo Page
This private page shows the complete online registration and payment sequence experienced by users. Please bookmark or copy the page address so you can come back to it whenever you want. The sequence starts with online registration, below.
Among other things, the form requires skippers to tell us how they will be paying (by check or online). When the registration is submitted, the user is redirected to the fees page here.
If people opt to pay online, they do that here. Correct tax is added automatically.
Every time someone registers, an auto e-mail alert with complete registration details is sent to the form administrator. The system is configured right now with Rick Trisco as admin. That can be changed to whichever office staff has primary responsibility for keeping track of registrations and compiling reports.
Joena Vitale knows how to track both payments and registrations. I also trained her how to output spreadsheets for both registrations and payments. She may need some refresh. The office will need to develop a protocol for seamlessly handling the fairly high volume of online registrations we can expect; and the protocol needs to be kept simple and straightforward for the Fleet Captain. I suggest that when an online registration comes in, the digital record should be immediately printed out and filed, so that all registrations are together in one physical location. Other customers of mine who also make a lot of use of online forms, alongside traditional paper forms, have been doing this susccessfully for years.
The office needs to be cognizant that online registrants have the option of scanning and uploading their certificate of insurance and their PHRF certificate. The form requires them to tell us the method they will be using. It also requires them to tell us the insurance certificate expiration date. Again, whenever we find that a certificate is attached to a registration, it's easy to print it out and file it, and that should be done immediately.
The form contains our standard liability waiver and requires the registrant to check a consent box signifiying acceptance. Rick has researched the issue and says this method of waiver is legally binding. Many thanks to Rick for looking into it, athough I still recommend asking Seth Goettelman to make triply certain.
