multiple choice with extra cost - needs more mgmt options
We would find "multiple choice with extra cost" much more useful if it had a few more features. We find we always need capacity and the ability to close a multiple choice option without deleting it. We hold an annual conference with many extra choices for social events and luncheons at extra costs. We run into WA problems for example when In the last days leading up to the event, we have to close some of the multiple choice items(caterer needs last head count), but we can still take general event registrations. Or, we may have an offsite tour and need to cap it to a bus capacity.
I know we could set up multiple events to do this, but our experience with our constituency is that it would be way too confusing.
Also we get registrants that want to come back in later and modify their multiple choice with extra cost, but that does not seem possible online.
so our wishlist:
1) Multiple choice w/extra cost that can be closed (not deleted).
2) Multiple choice w/extra cost that can have capacities. Auto-closes when capacity reached.
3) Multiple choice w/extra cost that can be modified by the attendee
Or the ability to nest events within a master event that all reports up and out at the master event level.
We need this so badly, Please implement it soon! :(
There is a dedicated thread on the first 2 options - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825575-limit-number-of-selection-for-individual-registrat
It focuses on limiting registration options (i.e. not more that max quantity is allowed or admin can manually disable some choice at any time)
First 2 options are in our design queue - but the release date is unknown yet (not earlier than half a year).
The last one - self-service of attendees to make changes into confirmed registrations - is is something that has been postponed for now as we are busy with other changes.
But I personally agree with your wishlist and it makes a perfect sense for me. Thanks for sharing
I like the idea of Option 3... for example, one of the extra cost options could be a T-Shirt ($20) and then it would force you to enter in size and style (mens/womens, color, etc.)
I agree. Makes managing an event much harder.
