It is very important to test your registration site with sample students. Once testing is complete and everything has been verified to be correct, you will want to remove the sample registrations.
The link to register in test mode is found under Registration Site Addresses. Using the Address to Test Registration will allow you to access the registration site even though the registration is not open. It also flags this registration so that all the "sample" data can be removed at the click of a button. Other than this, the registration site is the same as it will appear to students.
You should test with a real email address (doesn't matter which one as long as you have access to it) when testing, so that the system will send you all of the emails that students will receive, allowing you to completely verify the process. If your school accepts online payments, it will be live, so you should NOT pay with a credit card but choose one of the other payment methods. If you wish to do test registrations multiple times, you will need to use different emails or remove your test registration.
If you have any registrations that were made in "Test-mode", you will receive a message on your Dashboard in the Require Action Section when you log in. Removing this test registration is as simple as following the "Remove Test Registrations" link and clicking the "Remove all Test Mode Records". Use caution when doing this as this process can not be reversed. If you see any registrations that appear to be actual registrations, please contact Total Registration.
