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.

        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.

        Yes, there really needs to be the ability to add conditional logic to registration forms! As many others have noted, not having it often makes registrations extremely messy and unwieldy when you have multiple types of registrations, levels, and add-ons that only apply to certain people. Any updates?

      • DavidBergDavidBerg commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is there anything new on this? It seems like there just needs to be custom fields available for each registration type instead of ONLY on the registration forms. The same options would easily allow for having there be extra costs (for a la carte registration), just make a selection (such as vegetarian or not), or specific information from that just one type of registration.

        Thanks.

        Also, I'd like the option to make required fields change based on payment type selected. Someone who selects "bill according to contract" shouldn't have to fill out a billing contact and address, whereas someone who selects "invoice" would.

        Our organization is not using WA at all for events due to the early bird, senior/student, member/non-member, and presenter discount categories needed. I would like events to be in WA!

        I would like to customize the registration form and it's required fields based on registration type. For example, we offer training to both customers and employees, so I would like to make "approving manager" a required field for my employees, but that would look strange if customers saw that on their registration form, even if it wasn't required.

      • Lori CouterLori Couter commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This would help me too. We have employees and customers register for our training events. I don't want to make all of the billing information required for our employees, but I would like to for our customers.

        It would be nice if we could have different selection options for a registration type. For example if someone wants to sign up as a sponsor, we could have 10 sponsorship levels for someone to choose from without having to create 10 different registration types. In some occasions, certain registrations would have different needs with their registration and we should be able to create different registration forms for this if we want instead of having one form for all registrations.

        I would love to see the ability to show/hide fields based on their membership level. We do a form where all the events are priced differently based on membership type or not being a member at all. Currently I am stuck doing 3 identical forms each with pricing for one of the membership levels.

      • DavidBergDavidBerg commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We had to set up two separate events last year to handle the full and a la carte registrants. We charge a flat fee for an all inclusive registration (both members and students), but still need to know which sessions they want to attend. But that isn't helpful to show as any additional costs.

        For a la carte they have choice of various aspects which work fine with the check box or radio button with costs.

        But it obviously makes it more complex to limit registration to have two separate 'events' that are actually a single conference. Having a way to select fields (e.g. with cost vs. not with cost) for a given registration type would allow to combine into a single event and should give enough flexibility for many other alternatives.

        This type of customized event type is available for membership types, We need it here too.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree whole heartedly! Our conference has many different attending categories, not to mention Exhibitors. This just tends to make our registration form, messy and confusing. There should be no reason to not have the ability to have more than one form active at the same time.

        This would be very helpful for us. As it stands right now, we have to create 4 separate "events" to manage our conference registration. We have sponsors, exhibitors, and regular attendees (4th option is tours and workshops since we can't limit extra field choices on a form, addressed on that wishlist thread) with early bird, regular, and on site pricing. All three of our main types have different registration forms as they require different info. The only way to manage this currently is by doing separate events. This creates a lot of end work for me (the only staff person) to merge together the lists for attendee lists, badges, etc. It's also an issue when someone has registered an paid as one type and wants to switch types. We had a group of attendees that decided to exhibit last year and an exhibitor that didn't have display available so just attended. This takes a bit of trickery and remembering to eliminate the duplicates for registration counts, lists, etc. as we can't just change their registration type. Creating "logic" by selecting a type and then going to their registration options would be amazing. i.e. I select sponsor and then I'm directed to the sponsor registration types & form (Sponsor > Platinum/Gold/Silver > Sponsor Registration Form) or Exhibitor > Member/NonMember > Exhibitor Registration Form.

        On top of this, our sponsors & exhibitors have the ability to add guests (free for sponsors and a reduced rate for exhibitors). The only way we're able to do this is special guest price and full contact info (which for some reason doesn't require email another issue). We gather meal counts through the main registration form, but this isn't available for the guest registrations with just contact info option leaving us to guess for those additional sponsors and exhibitors. A full registration form for a guest with variable pricing would be great. As it stands now, you can only collect a full registration form if you charge them the same rate as the main registration.

        We need the ability to have a separate registration form for when members add guests to their registration.

        OR

        We need the ability to be able to select which fields from the main registration form populate fields on the guest’s registration form.

        Guests for our members are typically spouses and share the same contact info. Members have complained they don’t like retyping information for their spouses that is automatically populated in fields on their own registration form.

        We ask the following from the member for a weekend event:
        Address
        Home phone
        Cell #
        Email
        Aircraft Type
        Tail #
        Flying or driving
        ETA
        Then we ask a series of preferences.

        ---------
        For the guest, I need only the:
        Name
        Cell #
        Email
        Series of preferences
        The fields that should carry over from the main registration are:
        Address, home phone, aircraft type, tail #, flying or driving, ETA

        YES YES. Having different forms based on Registration Type or other selection method would be awesome.

        I would find it useful to assign a form style to certain membership levels or groups. SO if you are at membership level x, you automatically get form x , otherwise form y. This way, the user doesn't have to pick a Registration type.

        I would think this would be a setting in the event so it could be different for each event.
