Customize attendee list - both public and admins sides
Is it possible to customize what information is shown on the Registered attendee list that people can click on in event registration?
Specifically for our purposes, our trade show exhibitors can apply for their booth space through the event registration system. Rather than date and name, I'd like the list to show company name, products and website.
Merged several posts together, so that both public and admins lists can be customized. This is better for analysis and design to work on them together.

Currently only the 'date of registration' and the 'attendees' names' are published on the event website (as a Registered party). No other fields can be added/no fields can be deleted. It would be good to be able to show any of the information fields complete in the registration form.

I agree that it would be extremely useful to make the display on the Public view fully customizable. Date of registration is irrelevant for us, but I would not want email addresses or photos. We would like to be able to sort by registration type, showing the registration type as a heading and providing sub-totals of the number registered for each type. Hopefully this is achievable with the changes you are considering

We would like the ability to customize the fields shown - event registration date is irrelevant for us, but we would really like the phone and email address.
The photo is a nice idea too.

We also need this. Most of our events are class style - would like to be able to list different types of attendees - teacher and student and be able to tell who is who when looking at the roster.

We would like to be able to customize the information shown in the list of event registrants.
For example, we'd like not to show the sign-up date, but display a photo of the registrant.

RSVP would certainly help and is a high priority for us for the same reason. However it would be good to be able to add some additional registration fields to display for the members. We would find this particularly useful for custom fields we have added to collect information at registration.
I fully AGREE with the comment posted by Pollcokk. I run a very large Meetup group with several thousand members that I want to transition to WildApricot. However, my main hesitation is the inability to post PHOTOS with the attendee list as people R.S.V.P.
Because the group is a social and business networking group, people like to be able to actually SEE WHO'S COMING TO AN EVENT. I've found that showing attendees' photos often draws more people to the event and is very helpful to me as the Organizer as well as to the other attendees.
This can't be a difficult function to add, as I've seen numerous other networking sites (besides Meetup) that have it. While it will take up a little more "real estate" on the R.S.V.P. page, for those of us who enable this function, it would be well worth it from my experience. Please, please, please!
Anyway, thanx so much for listening and for providing this forum. I look forward to using WildApricot very soon....and even sooner if this feature is added!
I would like to be able to display a directory of all people attending an event WITH their photos. I can now search the Contact DB and save a search of contacts attending an event, but i cannot access that saved search in the Directory gadget. I cannot search in Members for all members attending an event.
We would like the ability of our members to see the photos and other information of everyone attending a specific event.

customizable the view of event registrations list (for public view). Showing 10 registrations per page means that participants need to scroll through dozens of pages before seeing their name or finding someone elses. Admins should be able to add view-widgets to this page, or better still the platform should offer more user friendly browsing options. like (view 'x' per page etc.)

It's crazy that Wild Apricot -- who markets primarily to businesses -- does NOT have the option to include the Organization / Company name of event registrants. This isn't even a Custom Field -- it's one of the primary content fields already there. I'm preparing for our annual event, and was hoping they'd have this added by now!!! When... WA... When???
I think the better way to solve this is to actually implement RSVP feature.
I would like a nicer way for my members to view registrants. It is a lengthy process to page through a hundred names. There are not in alpha order,, just by signup date. And, i would like the view to list by registration type.
I use this registration types as "work around" for basic things like:
1. Wait List me please for this event.
2. No, I cannot make it
So if I could get an alpha listing, by registration type, it would give my members an accurate of picture of the RSVP's. Those coming alone or those with guests.
Currently, there are a few static fields that indicate who has registered for an event.
Suggested - allow event admins to select what event and/or membership fields to display in the public and back-end (admin) event registrant listings for improved searchability.

It should be possible to display selected common and member fields and also additional questions from the registration form.

I'll support this, but would also like it for the Registrant list that is available for members to view. And it should support common and member fields as well as additional questions from the registration form.
Our members want to know which of their friends are coming to events, and that includes the number of people (adults and children) which are additional questions on the registration.
This is also something the volunteers preparing dinner need to know. At the moment the only way they can see that is to have admin privileges. That is not only poor administrative practice but is now expensive. :)
Attendees page is a system page and unfortunately it cannot be customized with custom fields. For now, the best way to view your custom fields is by doing Export. To do this go to the event and click on Export attendees button.
Yes it does appear that exporting registrants is a workaround. Thank you for your response kerieanne -- it sounds as though you too would benefit from this feature.
When one of the selling catch phrases of Wild Apricot is "Escape Excel Hell", we probably shouldn't have to go back there just to view the information we need in a list. Column display is a core staple of many other softwares that layer on top of a database.
As a work around in the short term, could you use the reporting? It lets you pick and choose which fields - I do this very thing for events that I have custom fields for - means you don't have to click into each registrant and you can print it nicely as well if you need to for whatever reason
They would view on a computer. I believe the functionality would be similar to the directory where you can select which columns to display what information on the registrant screen.
Makes sense. Could you elaborate on where and when you expect your attendees to view this list?
For example would it be something they view on their phone when they're at the event or would it be something the view on a computer before attending?
