I'd also like to see this feature added.
I would also be very interested in this feature, perhaps its something you are planing on rolling out with the upcoming release.
Basically it would be really nice to have members login and find a dashboard like page with a greeting (Hi Member-Name) containing all the information pertaining to their account, current event registrations, past event registrations, any balance owed, etc.
All of these functions already exist in WA but in my opinion are all scattered in different areas. It would be nice to be able to get all of them from one screen.
Let me know your thoughts on this.
I have another question and this is unrelated to this topic so let me know if you prefer to have it posted under a separate thread.
Is there a way or are there plans to allow admins to print out event badges directly from WA ? I've had a few inquiries about this. I think it would be useful especially for those organizations that take on-site registrations. It would be nice to set up a kiosk where an event attendee could register on a computer and print their badge from within WA. Any thoughts on this ?
yes I agree an API would be ideal in this situation and in fact the API is my number one wish list item for WA but I'm not sure that this will be on the product road map anytime soon. Correct me if I'm wrong.
thank you for your response. This makes sense from a product development point of view but what about just being able to synchronize records ? Will that ever be a possibility ?
The majority of my clients that are in the events business are engaged in very targeted, graphic intensive email marketing to drive event registration. WildApricot's current offering is good for sending simple email's out to members but still lacks many of the features my clients have grown accustomed to from services such as mailchimp, constant contact etc., therefore I do not anticipate they will use it for marketing purposes. Bottom line if we can't have full integration then perhaps third party data synchronization could be a more reasonable option.
It think the admin community would really find value in being able to sync their member data to third party applications even though this is technically possible by just simply exporting and importing somewhere else but it would be nice to have real-time synchronization.
Please share your thoughts on this.
first off I want to say that you've done an excellent job on wild apricot, it is by far (in my opinion) the best solution out there.
So on to my request..... it would be really nice if we were given the option to integrate with mailchimp or perhaps have an api available to us so that we can then develop a bridge between both products.
Mailchimp has an extensive and well maintained api, it can be found here:
Perhaps this integration is something that can materialize in the near future. Please let me know your thoughts.
