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. forms. Then the choice of which days they want to attend must be an Extra Cost add-on to the registration. It's a bit awkward to implement and a bit confusing to registrants.

    Instead of separate registration forms, can you use the same option that is used when renewing a membership, the custom field can be linked to a membership type - can it be applied to the registration custom fields and have that question link to a registration type?

    Any update on this? I would like to customize the registration types. There is only options for member or everyone. We have partners/sponsors that we would like to offer a reduced rate to, but I don't see how to do that.

    Please allow customized confirmations based on registration type. This will allow us to communicate specifically to each of registrants with important information for their specific registration type. (Exhibitors vs. Sponsors, vs. Attendees, Vvs Speakers vs. Board Members vs. Guest vs. Members vs. different types of memberships, blah blah blah Thank you!

    Please add the ability to allow different common fields/new fields to be accessed by the registration type they select. It would be nice to have registration attendees and sponsors within the same event and neither need all the same the fields.
    Also add ability to add membership fields with in the event!

    Please add customized registration options for each registration type with customized event confirmations for each type of registration. There is so much involved in an event registration for conventions and conferences.

    Allow different common fields to be viewable based on the registration type they select. For example, if someone chooses a "VIP" registration which could include a T-Shirt so "T-Shirt Size" could only be able to be seen by that type.

    It would be very beneficial to let us control the visability of event fields to different Registration Types…

  • Warren, thanks for dropping by our office in Toronto and personally voting for the feature! This is a proof that you did this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ggk35w2zq75hnmw/IMG_0034.jpg?dl=0 :)

    Still, I cannot make any promises and by my current understanding this is not in our next year roadmap so far.

    But, as promised, I've delivered your cry to our Events development team, so this is up to them to consider if they can do anything about this soon.

    We would like to have the facility to add fields to the registration form that don't show up when a member registers. The fields would be for completion by the event organizer only. At present we add the fields with a message to leave them blank. They appear at the bottom of the form but look odd to members and they have to scroll past them to click the Next button

    This could be dealt with by having different registration forms for different registration types as has been requested by many other Wild Apricot customers. However, the option of registration fields that are only visible to admin might be easier to implement and might address some of the requirements stated by others in this thread

    Under Event Registration Forms the feature I would like to see is two (or more) multipliers, e.g. number of guests x number of days x $20.

    I would LOVE this functionality. We have MANY different event registrations. There are some for members and non-members (currently, I can't find a way to even display the non-member rates to only non-members...I have to select either member or everyone...so then our members also see all the non-member pricing, which they are telling me is confusing them. Would like to see a multi-tiered approach.

    For example:
    Step 1: Click to register for event

    (On all following screens: Only early-bird pricing shows up until cut off date. After cut off date, only full pricing shows.)

    Step 2: Select Member (and appropriate sub-category - Life; Regular;
    Retired; Student) OR Non-Member (and appropriate sub-category -Regular; Retired; Student)

    (Click for next screen to show only the appropriate registrations)

    Step 2: Select appropriate registration (Thursday Only; Friday Only; Thursday AND Friday)

    (Click for next screen)

    Step 3: Add guest(s) at special rate for guests (still early-bird pricing if before cutoff date and regular pricing after) and collect name of guest(s)

    (Click for next page)

    Step 4: Add any special items with Extra Charge Calculation

    (Click for last page)

    Step 5: Confirm registration

    My suggestion is to be able to add extra fields for Event Registrants so that it doesn't only show the name of the guest, but able to also show the name of the company/organization that registered.

    Any word on this? I wanted to do this for offering member-only perks at an event, but need to know if the member wants to take advantage of it. So, we have an event, members can choose to take advantage of a member-only tour, so members need a check box "Yes, I want the tour," "No, just the main program for me." Non-members don't have the option to the take the tour so I don't want the checkbox on the form for them.

    This is a great idea and we'd love to have an opportunity to add customised macros to our event registrations as well. We operate across multiple currencies and we'd like to be able to include a customised macros that includes the pricing in both currencies.

    I'll add my vote to this feature request. We have an annual conference and attendees choose which workshops to attend. I have a use cases where I would like the ability to select which form fields appear for which registration type.

    We have a three day conference but offer a "Friday only" rate. I want those registrants to only see and select their workshops (pull-down fields) for the Friday sessions and options.

    To implement, I see an option with each form field where we can select which registration types that field applies to.

    I would like to add my vote for this request to be added to the development queue. I have a registration scenario where a member can attend a conference/meeting(with base price) at their event & they can select to attend various socials(with up charges) at the event. They also can bring guests, the guests cannot attend the conference/meeting but the can attend any or all of the socials(with up charges).

    The only way the guests can be added and be able to select from the a-la-cart socials in the registration form is to set the members registration type to collect all of the guest information. Unfortunately selecting that option in the registration type causes the base price to be added to each guest registration. We should really be allowed to choose whether or not the base price is applied to guests & be able to create custom forms for each registration type created.
