    This is on hold as of now. We analyzed and even prototyped a solution some time ago, but our priorities changed and now we’re focusing top-voted items – and this one has to wait its turn. But we will get back to it at some point, just cannot tell when yet.

    I have always found it difficult to understand the argument that numeric fields are unnecessary. I cannot imagine Excel or any database not having numeric fields! To answer Evgeny's specific questions:
    1) We are a golf society catering for members between the age of 20 and 100 years old. We capture, currently in text fields: 'Year of birth' (members do not always wish to disclose their date of birth for privacy reasons; 'Golf handicap' (number between -8.0 and +57.0). We have tournaments that we enter where there are age restrictions, for example, over 55 years of age, over 70 years of age. We also need to differentiate between category 1 golfers (handicap 5.0 or less), category 2 golfers (handicap 6.0 to 12.0) and so on
    2) Yes, we do need to have the ability to search on the above numbers, including 'less', 'greater' and 'between'. We would like to be able to perform a search of any member over the age of 55 with a handicap of 12 or less, and use this to create a directory of members who satisfy this criteria
    3) As explained, we need integers, decimal and positive/negative
    4) Validation would be helpful because we don't want new members putting in the wrong birth year, so we would only allow birth dates between 1900 and 2050
    Hopefully this can be addressed in the very near future. Even though it doesn't appear to attract many votes, I am sure that there are many, many organizations that would use numeric fields if they were available

    We are a golf society and I am working with two other societies who use the Wild Apricot. For every member we capture his or her golf handicap, which takes two possible forms. Firstly, an exact handicap (1dp) and secondly, a playing handicap (0dp, rounded up). We need to able to sort on handicap and search for members in handicap ranges (or less than or more than). We cannot do this without a numeric field
    Handicaps typically range between 0 (scratch) and 45 but as a further complication, which I don't expect Wild Apricot to address, a player who is better than scratch can have a 'plus' handicap (e.g. plus 2). I would be happy to accommodate this as a negative number, so, ideally, the numeric field should be able to accommodate a negative number for sorting purposes.

    We would like to have the facility to add fields to the registration form that don't show up when a member registers. The fields would be for completion by the event organizer only. At present we add the fields with a message to leave them blank. They appear at the bottom of the form but look odd to members and they have to scroll past them to click the Next button

    This could be dealt with by having different registration forms for different registration types as has been requested by many other Wild Apricot customers. However, the option of registration fields that are only visible to admin might be easier to implement and might address some of the requirements stated by others in this thread

    We are a golf society of 950 members with some 120 matches per year, most of which are run by different members. We set up the matches centrally so that match managers do not have to do that part of event management but we require the match managers to respond to registrations and send out confirmations and starting sheets

    The majority of match managers only go on to the admin site once a year to manage a handful of players and few of them have the ability (and patience) to manage the current ‘registration’ site - so resort to managing the match outside the system, which defeats the whole point

    With a good number of votes for this request, which was started almost two years ago, I really hope that we will something done - it would also make Wild Apricot very much more attractive to potential customers who find the current administration facilities less than intuitive

    This is very similar to another wishlist item: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8827498-export-event-summaries#comments
    Export of registrations is fine, we just need an export for event details (including event organizer)
    Fields I would like to see in such an export are:
    · Event-ID
    · Title
    · Event URL
    · Tag
    · Location
    · Start date
    · End date
    · Event organizer

    Having an event export facility would be very useful for creating a printed fixture card, especially if the export were to include the name of the Event organiser. Fields I would like to see in such an export are:
    · Event-ID
    · Title
    · Event URL
    · Tag
    · Location
    · Start date
    · End date
    · Event organizer
    Hopefully this should technically be very straightforward

    Having an option to display the file name as a caption would be a simple way of enabling captions. This would be very helpful

    We have a nomination process whereby new members are proposed and have to be seconded by two other members with letters of support. Because we have more applications than spaces, successful nominations are put into a pool and drawn out at random each year, depending on the spaces available. Nominations (identified by the year of nomination, have a maximum of six ballots before they are taken out of the pool and are no longer eligible to become members. It would be great if the system could support this process online by allowing an existing member to nominate, and two or more others to submit 'letters' of support

    An import facility would be great for new Wild Apricot customers to get going quickly just as they do with the membership import capability

    As a golfing society, we use the guest registration to register the opposition team, so only have to enter first name, last name and golf handicap (one of our common fields. To be able to enter the names in list format with just these three fields would be excellent

    Hello everyone! 

    Seeing your activity on this thread we would like to present you with three new templates using the third-party app called “Integromat”. They could help you to: 
    - Copy an event with registrants 
    - Export registrations into a Google sheet 
    - Import registrations from a Google sheet 

    These need a short one-time setup and then you’ll be able to do the actions above in just a few clicks! 

    For more info see our blog: https://www.wildapricot.com/blogs/newsblog/2019/04/30/event-registration-integromat 

    We absolutely understand this is not a solution but more of a workaround for this request, so we won’t close this thread. But feel free to share your thoughts about these templates as well! 

    Please note, these workflows have some limitations and might not suit everybody. But we hope they will make your life a bit easier.

    I fully support the ability to pull data from custom fields rather than it having to be entered. Clearly it wouldn't make sense to use a check box approach for every custom field but it should be possible when adding a new field to have the option to select an existing custom field rather than defining a new field

    Wild Apricot Support (Pavel Scherbinsky) has provided a workaround for this that works well:

    You should be able to use this JavaScript code to replace the waitlist message:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jq$('.WaGadgetEvents .infoRegistrationIsSoldOut').each(function(){
      var textNode = $(this);
      textNode.html(textNode.html().replace(/.+/gi, "CUSTOM TEXT"));
    });
    </script>
    Just replace CUSTOM TEXT with a text of your choice and copy it into the editor field at Settings > Site > Global JavaScript.

    Merged several posts together, so that both public and admins lists can be customized. This is better for analysis and design to work on them together.

    I agree that it would be extremely useful to make the display on the Public view fully customizable. Date of registration is irrelevant for us, but I would not want email addresses or photos. We would like to be able to sort by registration type, showing the registration type as a heading and providing sub-totals of the number registered for each type. Hopefully this is achievable with the changes you are considering

    Hi Evgeny, my question is about understanding how the forum operates. Occasionally I notice that you or Dmitry ask members to 'vote' on an idea. Is voting achieved by just posting a reply or is there some other way for the community to cast a vote in favour of the change or against it?

    I suppose what I am looking for is a list of all suggestions that are 'up for vote' where I can go and cast a simple: Yes, No or 'Happy either way', perhaps with a short comment box

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Malcolm de C commented  · 

    Is there somewhere in the community where requests for feedback or voting are summarised or can be identified? I find it difficult to locate my own threads where the community has been asked its opinion let alone others

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I don't think that there is any doubt that it is confusing - the question is whether or not soemthing should be done about it and if so what?

    Is it possible to change this using global javascript or CSS?

    A number of my members, who are also event organisers, have found the use of the term 'public view' confusing and did not immediately realize that the button 'To public view' in fact takes you to the Member view.

    Given the title of this thread, would it not be more correct and less confusing if the button were to read 'To Member view'
