Limiting discount codes
In a previous event registration system I used, I could create coupon codes and then limit the number of times it could be used. The way that I used it was to create each of my sponsor companies their own code, and then limit it to however many discounts they were allowed (i.e. one level of sponsorship gets 2 free attendees to all events, so I would make the coupon be a 100% discount and limit it to being used twice).
Right now, it appears that you can do ONE coupon per registration level. I prefer not to do that for a few reasons, and the primary one being that I can't limit how many times it's used.
In the system I used previously, coupons were separate from events entirely. I'd create them all in one place, and then per event, I could check off which ones could be used. And coupons could be a $$ amount discount or a percentage.
This would be a really useful feature if Wild Apricot were able to add better coupon functioning.

We need to limit the number of times a member can use a discount coupon code for registration or renewal. When we created our discount code, we checked "limit" and specified 3 times, not realizing that it would limit the code to a combined total of 3 uses. If we could apply it to 3 uses per each member, then it would allow a new member to get a discount on membership for 3 years as they establish their new practice (this is a professional organization).

For conference registration we use discount codes for various levels of attendees. For example a President's Circle attendee is allowed two free registrations, and two at full price. The registration software we use through our meeting planning company allows is to limit the number of uses of a particular discount code, Wild Apricot does not have this feature. It would be a significant improvement is we could bring our registration process into Wild Apricot, but without this feature we cannot.

Make an easy way to create and apply list of single-use coupon codes for redemption. This way we can print coupon codes on certificates, gift cards, etc. and greatly reduce administrative overhead.
That is exactly what we are thinking of - we have a number of requests about discounts and we realized that we want to build a central place to control all discounts.
Moving to wishlist.
