  1. Registrant to view/change his event registrations

    Current features:
    Once registered, a person can not change anything (i.e. cancel/edit details) about their registration, this can only be done by the administrator

    Desired behavior:
    Registrants should have the ability to view and edit their own event registration(s)

    • RSVP - Simplified event registration

      Current behavior:
      Registration requires filling out online registration form.

      Desired behavior:
      In some cases this is an overkill and what is desired is Evite-style registration when people can simply click on the link in the event and be done with it.

      Notes:
      1) This would only work for people already in the database
      2) This would only apply to free events
      3) If there are multiple registration types - assign one as default? Force people to choose online?
      4) Highly desirable - negative RSVP - when people say they can not attend.

      • Fast registration or Simplify buying registrations to multiple events or multiple registrations in one event

        At the moment, it is not possible to register for multiple events at the same time, or link to the next event after registering for one event on Wild Apricot. This functionality would have been extremely helpful for a recent conference for Children's Hospital that we set up through you...would it be possible to add this feature?

        ------
        UPDATE by Apricot Kernel: I decide to add here a good comment from Malcolm de C, it sheds more light into the problem

        (Malcolm de C) I represent two organisations where the ability to register for multiple events in a single…

        • Allow members and/or conference registrants to upload file attachments

          Our academic society would find it extremely useful if members -- or better yet, conference registrants -- could upload files (e.g., Word docs, PDFs). This would allow presenters at the conference to share papers prior to the conference, potentially enhancing the feedback that they would get from other conference-goers. We would really like to provide this service for our members/conference attendees.

          • Members to be able to submit events

            Current situation:
            Not supported, only administrators can create events.

            Desired:
            Members have the ability to submit simple events which can be approved by administrators.

              Current design suggestion: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1bysAcJFAs9-lVEbNBSyqhT-QSDt6TvTDPz8k2nvaJ3I/pub?start=true&loop=false&delayms=15000

              Key Change:
              We’ve extended the ‘Event calendar’ gadget settings by adding a new option ‘Members-driven events’ – allows members to submit their events from the calendar page by using a simple form.

              We’ve also included a few features to help you organize and restrict these events. These changes are:

              1) Restrict the submitting events option to specific members
              2) Automatically assign tags to these events so you have easily include/exclude them from various calendars
              3) Options to send a confirmation email to the submitter and or administrator
              4) Separate filter in Event list for administrator to show Members events
              5) Members that submit events can access a list of the events they’ve submitted to view, edit and delete them

              Excluded for now:

              1) No options to submit events with advanced registration options. Only minimal details, like Title, Description, Dates and Location. However an administrator can add…

            • Recurring events: separate registrations for each occurrence (e.g. monthly board meetings)

              Original recurring events request was to complex for us to resolve in a single release, so we decided to focus it on a simple scenario where event can have multiple sessions, but event registration is one and for all - like courses. See http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825581-recurring-events-scenario-1-event-with-multiple for more details on this one.

              Another important scenario is when event is actually a recurring series of events, but each occurrence of an event may have a separate registration and updated description of event. Example - monthly board meetings. Event is created in the beginning of year with a monthly recurring schedule, but each occurrence…

              • Dicount coupons for event registrations

                I tried implementing the arrangement for coupon codes for events this week.

                I'm sorry, but I really don't like the way it currently works.

                To explain, I wanted to setup a coupon code in WA for 25% off a registration for any event. To start with, I needed to edit every single event one at a time to do so. Then, when I logged in and practiced going through the process of registering, it showed the 25% off rate as an option. Anyone could see the amount of the coupon, even if they did not know the code and therefore…

                • Installments / Payment plans for events and memberships

                  Could Wild Apricot users offer their members an introductory trial rate for, say 30 or 7 days, followed by, say quarterly or six-monthly payments to spread the cost over the year?

                  That is very helpful during a recession, when many WA website users will find revenue dropping as their members cut back. To be able to spread payments looks very attractive to new prospective members: four quarterly payments of $10 is much easier on the budget than one payment of $40.

                  The introductory trial could be free, or at a pro-rata cost for 30 or 7 days. During the trial…

                  • Limit number of selection for individual registration options

                    Current behavior:
                    Automatic cap of event registrations is currently set for the whole event only.

                    Desired behavior:
                    Many people use custom event fields to handle registrations for specific sessions within large events. What's needed is the ability to specify for each option in such fields that it should be limited to certain number of people. Once the limit is reached, option should become unavailable.
                    An example:
                    Which extra sessions you want to attend?
                    [] Golf $150 - Max 30
                    [] strip club $100 - <No Max>
                    [] History museum $20 - Max 50

                    • Mandatory payment for event registration: complete a registration only when a payment is received

                      I have two sites that I have just created and thought before hand (Prior to last update) that I tried the registration process. I recall being able to turn off manual or offline payments which in turn would only complete event registrations only if an online payment was received.

                      Now that I have built these two sites and see that "invoices" are being created and people are regsitering without paying online, it is creating a major problem and adding a tremendous burden on our businesses in multiple ways.

                      1. A bunch of our events have limited registration so when people…

                      • Registering families for events

                        I've really had to finagle the system to make it possible for us to have an event to which children are likely to attend with their parents. At present, we have the ability to have guest registrations at a different rate, or guest registrations at the same rate, or the ability to have everyone register separately. What's needed is to have the cardholder be able to register everyone according to whatever rate they should get. For example:

                        Adult at 10, Children at 5. Right now the system can handle two adults, or two children being registered at once. The system…

                          At the event page, in the Location field where the address is added to the venue., recommend it converts address to a hyperlink Would be easier to click on this address and get a Google map or driving directions to the venue location.

                          • Customize event registration form for each reg. type

                            In Events, I'd like to have custom registration forms associated with each registration type instead of one single registration form for the whole event (all types). This would allow me to create more complex event registrations. Example: A three-day conference has two types of registrants (Individual and Professional) at different prices. Each one has an early-bird price as well. In addition, each one can choose to register for one day, two days, or all three days -- all at prorated prices.

                            To do this today, I have to create separate events for Individuals and Professionals, then customize those event reg.…

                            • Preparing event participant badges

                              Current behavior:
                              To print event participant badges, attendee list has to be exported into Excel and something like Microsoft Word mail merge used. This provides a lot of flexibility but obviously is less convenient than a built-in badge generator

                              Desired behavior:
                              Built-in functionality to define badge layouts and to print out badges in common label sizes right from the system

                              Notes:
                              We would appreciate feedback about desired label formats (sizes) and customization needs for badge layouts/design

                                  Have the ability for an Event Payment Reminder to only be sent to those with a balance due rather than all attendees.

                                  • Enhance Event Module for more complex events like conference & convention set up - e.g. events with sub-events

                                    to allow admin to add more detail rather than the only area being the description box. Similar to Systems like yourmembership.com Wild apricot is not sophisticated enough to handle complex details for events. Need more ability to add things like hotel information, speaker headshots, bio's, exhibitor lists, exhibitor floor plans, conference sessions, tiered registration options for attendees, guest, sponsors, exhibitors. An event page needs to be eye catching, easy for people to register and the ability to market all your event has to offer in order to get people to register.

                                    1.

                                    • Ability to schedule follow-up event email to attendees

                                      I would like the ability to be able to schedule a follow-up email to all attendees of an event when the event is built.

                                      We send out a customer satisfaction survey to all overnight/fly trip participants, and it would be great to just pre-load these in the event as we do Reminder emails and other customized event emails so they can go out consistently a few days after the event is over.

                                      Currently there is no way to schedule a customized email to go out automatically AFTER the event is over.

                                        • Color-format events based on event tags

                                          I'd like to be able to have just one calendar, with different event tags displayed differently, like in a different color or style or size. Currently I'm using two different calendars, which is a bit awkward. What do you think?
