This article only relates to the Legacy Event Module, which was replaced in 2013. Only use this article if you use the old Event Module.
If you are using both legacy events AND new, converted events, you will have two different types of pending registrations displayed on your home screen. Legacy event pending registrations will open in the Holding Tank pop-up as they always have, for you to accept. New event pending registrations are already entered in to your event and do not need to be "accepted" - the only action that needs to be taken is assigning the registrations to a Profile ID.
In the screen below, Thanksgiving Feast is a new event, while the Golf Outing 2014 is a legacy event that has not yet been converted -
Clicking the "2" under Pending Registrations for Thanksgiving Feast takes you to that event's registration management page, where you can click Action Needed to assign the two profile IDs as necessary (click here to learn more) -
Clicking "1" under Pending Registrations for Golf Outing 2014 will open the Holding Tank for you to assign a profile and accept the registration (click here to learn more) -
The "total" link at the bottom of the screen will open the Holding Tank, and is therefore for legacy events only.
