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 URL
· 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 URL
· 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
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.

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.
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.
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:
var textNode = $(this);
textNode.html(textNode.html().replace(/.+/gi, "CUSTOM TEXT"));

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
