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.

        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

        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.

        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?

      • DavidBerg 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!

      • Lori Couter commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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 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.

      • Carla Bingaman commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Chris DeMaster commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • DavidBerg 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.
