FormBuilder - Event sessions - How to edit event session information, including early or late registration dates

FormBuilder forms that have early and late registration price differences are usually set up using sessions to control the dates so the administrators do not have to manually change prices during registration. Occasionally, the administrator needs to extend registration and needs to change the dates on the event sessions. Other parts of a session may also need updated for any reason.

Users need to edit data for an event session, such as dates or pricing.  This also applies when the form has early/late registration pricing - sessions are created to control the dates, so the administrator doesn’t need to go in on the first day of late registration and increase the price (which can mess up payments for those who have already paid the early price).

In some instances, the administrator decides to extend the early registration date, and needs to find where to make the change.
