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.
Please make a way for differentiated registration for events so I can have vendors and attendees register on the same event but with different questions for registration.
Our association would benefit from this as well. We have individual membership and corporate bundle memberships which affects the registration. We would also like to use to event registration forms to help complete profiles. i.e. include membership fields in event registration forms.

Event registration form personalized to each Registration Type.
We have a range of registration types that require different attendance fees based on their location. It would be really convenient to be able to direct a Registration Type to a specific reg. form that is pertinent to them. Atm we have to create different listings for the same event to acheive this and then marry all the results to get an total list of all the registrations.
Or, alternatively, we have a complex list of attendance fees on the one form and rely the member will find the one applicable to them.
Which brings me to an idea already posted about having better layout control over the registration form to make them more user friendly.
Custom Fields in events should be allowed to get segregated/restricted by registration type. This would allow us to do custom fields that are only applicable to specific registration types. Would really help in doing advanced events!

Yes, this is a feature that is much needed.
In our case, we are holding an event where we are selling both individual tickets and tables of 10. The complication is that people must choose a meal type at registration. Since the custom fields for meal choices applies to all ticket types, the meal choice shows up awkwardly on the table of 10 registration for just one person. It would be better to not have the meal choice option at all apply to that type of registration, but it does because the custom field applies to all ticket types.

Another interesting request we have had to expand registration types: Allow a common field or membership field to "drive" which registration type is preselected. So if there is a common field call "Occuption" and it is a dropdown list, it could drive the preselected registration type by the same name. That way you could specify which registration type of selected automatically based on this field. If there is no exact match then the registration types are all shown. Otherwise if there is a match (case insentitive of course) the common/membership field can automatically select the right registration type. This can be useful when assigning registrants to a specific registration type only available to them without needing to set access control. It's sort of a second level of access control based on the membership profile outside of Membership Level or Group.
2 registrations types: member & non-member
Each type has 5 options:
Day 1, class 1
Day 1, class 2
Days 2& 3 with class 1
Days 2&3 with class 2
We have a guest price. I'm also planning to tier my registration with a early and late window. I'd really like to offer digital recordings as an option. Yikes. Having unique fields per registration type could clean up what is going to be a administrative mess.
I could literally go to two registration types - member & non-member and use extra charge options to get the details.
Also customized confirmations for each registration type is needed.
We do charity car shows. Sponsors or Vendors who register are not interested in or required to enter year, make, and model of their cars. With registrations for vendors, sponsors, competitors, volunteers, etc. It makes for a very complex and off-putting registration process. Is there some work around? Registration Type specific forms are critical. It looks so very unprofessional otherwise.

This feature is mandatory for such a system !
Please add it as soon as possible.

I would like the Main Event's break out sessions (registration types) to have the same option flexibility as the Main Event. Option such as pdf session paper inclusion, lunch menu options and costs, guest charges and early bird discount options.
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
