  1. 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…

    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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

    Even though it is not a direct implementation, I hope this could be helpful:

    We just launched integration with Integromat platform, which helps to build automated workflows. We also provide several templates for quick start, and one of them allows to copy google calendar events into WA events. So if you share a google calendar for events submission, then the scenario could copy submitted events into your Wild Apricot account.
    You can try this integration by this link https://www.integromat.com/en/integration/2275-copy-google-calendar-into-wild-apricot-events

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Registering families / bundles 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…

  7. 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.…

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. Maps for venue location

    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.

  14. Allow registrants to change their registration details

    Registrants could view their registrations and cancel them. But the edit registration details and options is still not presented.

    There are many cases then this function required, started from typo to registration options.
    At the same time not all administrators allow to edit registrations, it depends on many factors, the main it may affects costs.

    Another case is adding / removing guests to existing registration, we have separate thread about this: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932/suggestions/8827063

  15. QR codes scan for event attendance tracking

    Does anyone know a way to use QR codes with WildApricot? It would be a nice way to handle check-in to events, etc. if we can get the reservation to print with a QR code.

  16. 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.

  17. Bulk import of attendees

    We sometime invoice institutions for a group of attendees. It would be great to have an excel file that can be imported per event to populate the list of attendees.

    Hello everyone! 

    Seeing your activity on this thread we would like to present you with three new templates using the third-party app called “Integromat”. They could help you to: 
    - Copy an event with registrants 
    - Export registrations into a Google sheet 
    - Import registrations from a Google sheet 

    These need a short one-time setup and then you’ll be able to do the actions above in just a few clicks! 

    For more info see our blog: https://www.wildapricot.com/blogs/newsblog/2019/04/30/event-registration-integromat 

    We absolutely understand this is not a solution but more of a workaround for this request, so we won’t close this thread. But feel free to share your thoughts about these templates as well! 

    Please note, these workflows have some limitations and might not suit everybody. But we hope they will make your life a bit easier.

  18. Archive events

    Be able to archive events so they no longer show in the event list and do not delete any invoices. But still be able to access them in a search. Kind of like archiving members.

  20. Calendars that sync with Google Cal or Outlook

    Calendars that sync with Google Cal or Outlook

    Right now, parents on our ski team must manually click each event to "add to my calendar," but since we have as many as 2-3 events per week, that is a burden. Instead, they would love to subscribe to a series of events (for instance, all events that share a given tag).
