Create member directory page for members associated with events

As of now, the only way to make a member directory is to use saved searches in the member area. But associating a search to event attendance can only be done in the contact area (and those saved searches can not be used for creating a member directory page). So my wish is to be able to create a saved search in the member area that associate a member with a specific event attendance so that I can create a customizable member directory associated with that specific event.

Thanks.

    Yes. That would be helpful. What I like to do is publish who is attending an event but with the formatting of a directory. I do not like the formatting that is built in to the event pages to post who is attending. I have found a work around where I put in the notes section of members attending the event a word that I can then attach a saved search to....it is a very manual process but I then can have the look I want for the directory.

    My members in WA are not individual members they are "teams". So when a team registers to be part of something like a design showcase, I want our judges to be able to review the team's profile in advance. So this is why I like to create a directory of the participating teams.

    Your solution you stated in your response would fix this issue for me.

    Thanks for posting about this.

    Can you expand a bit - why do you create these directories within an event/how are they typically used?

    I guess in Wild Apricot the solution would be to make saved Contact searches available to select records for the member directory (since Contact searches do have the ability to search by event registration)
