Variable pricing for additional (i.e. "guest") registrations
I would like to reiterate a request I have seen in various forms in other posts.
There needs to be the option of selecting different prices for "guest" registrations. At most of our events the person registering online brings a guest. Sometimes this guest is also a member of our organization (at which point they should be allowed to choose the "member" rate) and sometimes they are not (so they should be able to choose the "guest" fee.)
We have just moved from using Constant Contact's "Event Spot" as our event registration software and find WA lacking in this area. Through Constant Contact you could choose varying levels of guest registration. I think it is a great model for you guys to look at.
Loving everything else, but this is a BIG problem.
Thanks so much!
This is a feature that would be great for us too. We have the same situation with board members who have comps for a number of events and we always have to do some type of work-around, defeating the whole purpose of having an online registration function.

On a second thought this might be addressed by another enhancement we do plan to implement in the future:
currently all guests have to use the same registration type. It has been requested that we allow different registration types for each guest.
So if we do this I think then you can create a special registration type requiring secret code (existing capability in WA), you can handle what you have described above.

I will withhold my judgement waiting for additional comments from other clients but so far this looks like a pretty unique setup so I do not think we would be able to consider adding this to Wild Apricot...
I love the new guest registration feature, but I had a situation that I didn't know how to solve:
Each year, our organization has an awards banquet, and we allow the honoree two complimentary (free) registrations, one for himself/herself and one guest. All additional guests pay the base price. I had to do a work-around, but it involved registering the VIP comp guest from the back-end. I set up a VIP Complimentary Guest registration type with $0.00, but it could not be accessed as a guest registration option. The VIP was able to register all paid guests, but not the complimentary guest, and it would be nice at registration to have them all lumped under the VIP's name.
