Event registration types: way to make a hidden one based on 'group' status?
Hi. My organization holds regular dinner meetings, with various registration types available, eg members, non-members, students, etc. Members of the governing committee get a discounted rate to the dinner. Since all of us committee members are full members as well, I have defined a 'group' called Committee Members, which is checked on for all of us (and can be unchecked if someone leaves the committee).
We've just started doing our first online event registration this month, and so far I've had to ask the committee members to choose the regular Members option so I can then manually change their fee to reflect the discount. Is there a way to make a hidden events registration type for committee members that will be displayed only to those people in that group when they log in? Going by my experiments and the manual, it seems like you can only have 'Board Member' if it's a separate membership type, not a group (but there seems little point to make a separate membership type for 10 people out of 500). Also, I'd rather not have the discounted price viewable by the general public, just by the actual committee members.
Its a very informational article, thanks we liked it.
Richard, do you mean how do you hide a membership level on the events registration page? You can go to Registration Types, "Edit" and then "Disable" that registration type. That will let you still manually register people for it but it won't be available from the event registration page.

Not sure what you mean re 'hide level', can you elaborate?

How do I hide a membership level using events? I checked the hide button but its not hiding the even from a level that I don't want to see it
unfortunately there is no currently a way to limit/hide specific registration type by group - only by level. So in your case the only choice is to place you and other members into special membership level.
But your point is very good and I'll move this thread into our wishlist forum - so everybody can leave a comment and vote.
