Specify time not just date for event's registration available period
Posting this on behalf of client Nishit Vasavada:
"Event registration start time (not just the date - under Registration Type/Available period). Currently it opens at 12am on the date of the local timezone, but we need it at 9pm. We can set the timezone to ET (we are in PT), but if we forget, it's a hassle. It would be really nice to have the time in addition to date."
Hi, WA folks. I have some suggestions for setting closing registration dates for events.
Right now, these dates:
1) Can only be changed by editing each membership registration type (eg member, guest, etc);
2) Can be expressed only in absolute calendar dates (such as "May 15") – and only for the day itself, not for the time – not for a date relative to the event (such as "2 days before the event").
My organisation has a dinner meeting one Wednesday per month, the booking deadline for which is always at 7:00 pm on the Monday beforehand. Even though I can copy a previous event and just change the specific event blurb each time, in order to fix the booking deadline I have to go into each registration type (we have four) and edit it individually, for each and every event.
Could you change it so that:
1) A single registration deadline can be set for the event itself (but specific types can also be edited to have an individual deadline to override this, eg for early-bird registration types);
2) This deadline can be also be expressed in relative terms (ie "2 days before the event date"), not just absolute calendar dates, and a specific time (relative to the organisation's defined local timezone) can also be indicated (eg "7:00pm [local timezone], 2 days before the event date").
I think this would be incredibly helpful for any organisation that has recurring events. Thanks.
