Limit number of selection for individual registration options
Automatic cap of event registrations is currently set for the whole event only.
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.
Which extra sessions you want to attend?
 Golf $150 - Max 30
 strip club $100 - <No Max>
 History museum $20 - Max 50
This feature is what may hold us back from moving over to Wild Apricot. I'm kind of shocked that it hasn't been implemented after almost 10 years of continuous interest!
This would be a valuable feature for us too. We're selling a limited number of raffle tickets for an event, and I can't keep checking registration to see how many have been sold.
We too need to be able to have an event with sub-events and limit the sign-up number per sub-event. We have an outing with different hikes available, but each hike needs a registration cap. Once the registration cap for the particular hike is met, the system should not allow people to sign up for that hike.
Plus, if you sign up for an all day hike, you should not be able to accidentally sign up for one of the 1/2 day hikes for the same day.
I have a client wanting to move to Wild Apricot, and not having this function is the only reason they haven't. Please implement this!
This would be great! Hope it comes to fruition.
Sorry Matthew, no updates.

Any updates on this feature?
It would really be helpful to be able to have people register for sub-events within one main event. Register for the Conference, then choose which breakout sessions you will attend. From what I can tell, Wild Apricot does not have this functionality, correct?
It would be great to have limits on the extra items on the registration form in events.
We currently have to monitor and change the extra items to (Sold Out + name of event_______) when they fill up. This requires an export of the registration list and sorting of events to check quantities. It would save a lot of time if they could be limited.
Having to manually monitor the 'add-on' event options nearly defeats the point of having an event registration system.
Once the extra event reaches capacity, there is no way to 'stop' or 'block' additional people from adding it. People continue to add the extras and then we have to email, explain, and issue refunds. Pointless extra work and costly with the labour involved. Too many manual work-arounds needed to try and make WA event registrations function.

This would be so helpful for many of our events.
Sorry, we didn't make it in 2016. We had to change our plans to address more urgent and important staff.
This year we're focusing on top requested items:
For Events area you can see the list here: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/category/127234-events
"Limit number ..." has less than 100 votes. There are 9 more ideas with more votes at the moment and we (Events team) hope to implement 4-5 of them.
So, to be honest with you there're not many chances for this feature in nearest future.
I can't say anything about next year either, we trying to avoid making promises we can't keep.
What is the status of this feature? Obviously it didn't roll out in January 2016 as planned... :(
This would be a great feature, but what I'd REALLY like to see is an open source plug-in model (a.k.a Wordpress) so that we could all start bulding our own enhancements instead of having to wait for the company.
any update on the rollout of this functionality?
It would be great to be able to place a limit on items that can be added to the event registration form where you can "Customize Event Specific Fields". We need to limit some of those because they cannot click on multiple registration types when registering.

We Could use this feature to get around the problem of disabling an Item. We have to give the caterer 10 days notice of the number of meals. So we could clamp down the maximum to stop people from selecting meals after the cutoff date.

Our conferences have many workshop choices each day, some in rooms with limited capacity. We have been using rsvpBOOK for our event registrations and that program allows limits for each option. I would like to use WA for this so that we are not having to coordinate two different online applications.
We will move back to wild Apricot to manage our conference once this gets turned on. Now Wild Apricot just needs a easy to use speaker management system with assignable sessions.

This is absolutely awesome! It solves many problems for us.
Our conference is the first week of June and we start registering in March.
I look forward to integrating this function into this years' event.
