  1. Provide easy way to transfer a registered contact to the waitlist

    The new waitlist facility is a welcome addition, however it does not fully cater for the way we operate.

    We ask as many contacts as possible to register for events. Selection to participate is at the discretion of the event organiser and not on a first-come, first-served basis. To activate the waitlist, we limit the number of registrations after they have been received and then move those not selected to the waitlist

    The only option for Admins to add waitllist registrations is to create a new entry. If an Admin wishes to move to the waitlist someone who has already…

    • Remember event access restrictions and last selection on Select recipients dialog for event announcements

      Current behavior:
      When admin needs to send or resend an event announcement (buttons "Send now" and "Send again") he/she has to select recipients in popup dialog every time because "All contacts" option is always selected by default.

      Desired behavior:
      1. If event has a restricted access (membership levels and/or groups) the same restriction should be applied by default in "Select recipients" dialog.
      2. System remembers previous selection in this dialog when re-sending an announcement email.

      • Add text field(s) to Registration form for instructions

        There are SO many things wrong with the Registration form itself. I'm aware that we can change a few things such as button text and page heading ("e.g., Enter guest registration information) globally by using JavaScript workarounds, but they're global and not always appropriate.

        Background: Our organization has certain events for familys and others for singles. Families we want on one form. Singles should (usually) register separately. This is for a variety of reasons ranging from data management to legal.

        * The only way to present instructions is to globally present them above the form. Instructions are extensive, so that…

        • Common Fields - ability to choose admin only fields

          I like the option of not including all common fields on my event registrations. However, if I do not select the "all common fields" box then I can not include our custom ID number which is an administrator only field. It would be great if we could choose all fields to be included -- even those that are not visible to attendees.

          • Customize Event registration status ("Registration is closed", ".. event is now sold out..."

            When registration is not yet open, our site says "Registration is closed." That can be interpreted as "SOLD OUT" or "TOO LATE." If reservations for one of our events are not yet being taken, how do we either eliminate that statement (simply don't have a button yet) or say "Reservations are not yet being taken"?

            • Event Manager without being Event Admin

              Prevent Event Admins from editing member data - or allow some events to be configured by non-admin. We want to allow certain members (rotates - different person each year) to be the 'admin' of an event but not give them full access (editing member data, viewing member financial info unrelated to the event). Wish there were a way to allow them to edit and monitor event registrations without being an admin.

              • would provide event templates

                Currently an event in Wild Apricot consists of a set of data fields (event title, a set of dates and times, location, description, tag field, registration form with standard and customizable fields, registration types, and customizable emails. This proposal would be to allow an administrator enter some or all of the details for an event and then to save these details as a template for the creation of complete events.
                1. Any partially or fully completed event can be designated to be an event template. The template will store all properties at the time that it is created. The template…

                • Manualy register several attendees for event

                  I would like to be able to manually register more than one contact/member at a time for an event, either through an import or by being able to put a check beside every contact/member I would like to manually register and being able to select "All" as well.

                  • Don't show multiple sessions in "Upcoming events" gadget

                    This is similar to an existing wishlist request, but this relates to the Upcoming events gadget, not the Events gadget. By default, all sessions of a multi-session event are shown separately in the Upcoming events gadget. Often this means that no other events are listed. It would be better to be able to show only the Event, not all the sessions. (We use this for weekly language classes; the event = a term of classes.)

                    • It would be nice to have a gadget to list featured events on a page, such as the home page.

                      A featured event gadget could be used to list one or more selected event for a page, say the home page and allow the ordering of those selected events. Alternatively, a simpler gadget could display one featured event and if I wanted to feature more than one event I could use more instances of the gadget. The information displayed could be similar to the information displayed for an event on the "Upcoming Events" page, i.e., not the full information, but a teaser. A teaser tool, to give control over how much info to display would be nice.

                      • 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…

                          • Select contacts for registration as a group

                            When addiing Registrants to an event, it is very time consuming to have to go through several clicks for each registrant. It would be great to say add registrants, and the contact list opens so I could select multiple people at once. Registering 150 one by one is time consuming!

                                Members and Non-Members of our club register for outdoor trips and events. We need a printable list for the trip leader to carry when away from electronic devices which has custom registrant details from their profiles - like phone numbers. The available reports and layout for Registrants do not provide this option. The reply from support contained this: "Unfortunately, you can only apply custom result layout to member-related searches. This feature is not available for event and regular contact searches."

                                  • Event description editing textbox is too small

                                    Better event detail edit mode display

                                    The box to enter edit details about the event is truncated and doesn't give a good sense of how the description will look. Also there's no true event preview or "testing" feature to do a trial registration, very difficult to iron out registration bugs.

                                      Registration Fees - add a field to display and deduct registration fees for paid registration. System should automatically deduct the registration fee instead of returning the whole event rate. For example: Event rate $100, registration fee $10. The refunded/returned amount $90.

                                      • Customize the Attendance Report

                                        When printing a registration attendance list, allow us to choose what fields to print. Having the membership type is not a useful field for an event attendance list. But having a contact email or phone number is.

                                        • 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.
