Ability for department managers to register multiple members and pay for them in one transaction.
I would like to see added the ability for department managers or administrators to register multiple members and pay for all of them in one transaction. It may be possible to add this feature to the group bundle administrator settings. Currently, the group bundle admin can add as many new members as the association allows for one price. Maybe instead of one price, the system would mulitply the number of members added and charge the admin accordingly. Any other admins out there looking for this kind of functionality?
We currently have a spreadsheet that a group admin can fill out and email to us. We manually add the members and invoice the admin. Once paid, we activate all the members.
This is a similar idea to allowing people to pay for others' memberships

I would love this functionality. Our association only has individual memberships, but sometimes institutions would like to pay for multiple employees at once. We're currently trying to find a workaround.

Thanks for comments.
Do you mean that current process of adding new member using "Add member" screen is too complicated and you need much faster way to accomplish your purpose?
And I also think that original post was basically about paying for multiple members at once - which is not possible now without bundles.

We also have a need to add multiple members at once, but the bundle doesn't work for us. The bundle links the new members under the control of a bundle administrator, but we would request an option to have the new members function as any other new member who signed themselves up on the website. However, if this bundle process requires entry on one person on one page with a couple of saves or selections, it won't be much of a help at all.
This situation occurs when we have an event and a number of people want to join as they enter. They'll give us the information and frequently pay, but they don't want to sit at a computer and sign up. Right now we have to ask someone to enter them one at a time. Our best option would be to have a spreadsheet generated by WA that we could fill with the new information. A quick input and we would have our new menbers added to our records.
