  1. 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.…

  2. Event gadget formatted as Mini Calendar

    I have the listed events gadget already in use. What I was wanting was a mini map that would show dates, and the viewer can click on the date and get specific events happening on that date. I also want to show the current events gadget as well on the home page.

    I would like to have a gadget that shows a working "Mini Calendar" like the one below for the home page.

    Something like this:

  3. Separate macro for day of week, month or year from the Event_Date macro

    We would like a date macro that just contains the date, i.e. 5th February 2010 and does not have ", Friday" added at the end as Event_Date does at present.

    We use this in our event announcements emails like this:

    You are invited to {Event_Title} to be held at {Location} on {Event_Date} starting at {Event_Time}

    and having "Friday" inserted in that sentence makes little sense.

    Best regards

  4. Events - my members own widget(s) for their own website

    WISH LIST: with EVENTS I would like a solution to make it possible to place a "widget" of a single member's events on their own website. In other words, if we have say 500 members in total as an example, specific members could have this widget to display events on their website of ONLY their own events they have entered on our website (or by tags if they want to include other member events as well, but first things first).

    This could be a serious win win situation as it would help Wild Apricot clients (all of us) with a…

  5. Importing events

    We have a fair number of events that are already in another database (for reasons I cannot avoid). It would be nice if these could be uploaded from a spreadsheet.

  6. Highlight lapsed members in event registration admin screens

    Although a lapsed member is unable to register for member-only events online (this is good), the Event Manager or Administrator when adding an attendee manually (one who mails in a registration form for example) does not get any notification when adding an attendee that their membership has in fact lapsed, and they are not eligible for the event (this is bad!).

    I had hoped to save all my Event Managers any extra work by telling them that when they entered the email address of the attendee, the system would not find them if they were not a current member. That…

  7. Hide registration amount on Event registration webpage

  8. 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?

  9. 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…

    It would be really helpful to show the time too such as:

  11. Advanced options for event registration types pricing

    We are finding the we would like to have sub-registration items available under main registration types. Hopefully, other will see a need for this. Here is what we are looking for.

    For instance, we set up an event and want to offer a exhibitor only pass as a registration type, however, we want to charge a daily rate for this pass. So similar to how the registration form "multiple choice with extra cost" function works, we would like the registration type to work the same way as follows:
    Exhibits Only Registration (no price listed)

    The user would select one or…

  12. After-Event Materials Link for Presentation Documents

    It would be great if there was a logical place to add a copy of the presentation and any other event documents after the event is over so that members can download them (especially for those members who couldn't attend the meeting). Is there anyway to do this?

  13. Transfer attendees between different events

    Our organization has multiple events that have the same content. After registering, some attendees need to transfer to a new date. I'd like to see a simpler way of doing this other than re-registering the attendee manually under the new date and then deleting the old registration.

  14. Customization of event list view - and persisence of selected view

    It would be very helpful for administrators to have multiple options for viewing the Event list, including:
    * by date/time ascending (next event first)

    * alphabetical by event name.

    We're managing dozens of small events each year and need to have up to six months' worth of events listed at a time. This would help in reviewing/editing upcoming events and in copying lists of events to e-mail messages, HTML newsletters, and text documents. The current reverse chronological order of the list forces me to copy and paste each event individually in order to get them in chronological order.

    It's also…

  15. 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?

    I merged another very similar thread into this one, they should be solved together – the registration to multiple events should be simple and fast if possible. There are a number of suggestions in comments on how to achieve this.

  16. Discount 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…

  17. Re-Sorting Event Registration Types

    The event registrations are sorted by $$ cost only and cannot be resorted. We have a big 3-day meeting and one can register for 1 day (any day), 2 days (any 2 days) or 3 days, then different member categories, then non-members can attend too, and the 28 different registration types are all messed up when sorted only by $$ cost. Can you fix this so we can sort the registration types by other means? Thank you.

  18. 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

  19. 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

  20. Online payment discount for event registrations

    Current behavior:
    For event registrations, whether people choose online or manual payment, this does not affect the price.

    Desired behavior:
    Becauseof possible no-shows, it is desirable to be able to motivate people topre-pay online instead of manually or at the door. Thus, administratorshould be able to specify a discount applicable for onlineregistrations (probably a dollar amount)
