I concur -- validation is an issue for me.
Fields that could use validation:
Name -- capitalization rules
Phone number -- (###) ###-####
Zip Code -- limit to 5 numerical digits or 5+4
Other ID -- Our organization is a local chapter of a national organization with membership numbers that are always 5 numerical digits
Yes, I would like non-member registrations to not be shown to members who are logged in also. I'd rather not have them be able to accidentally pay the wrong amount and then need a refund -- it happens.
I would also like the ability to customize the Member Level Change email.
I would also like this feature.
I'd like the ability to make event registration availability dependent on both membership type, and also requiring a registration code. Currently it is an either/or item.
Reason: Our workshop committee has set up some workshops that are only for certain members of our organization (and thus require approval before registering), but the payment levels are still tiered according to membership levels (different prices for different membership levels).I've suggested that they set up different registration codes for each membership type. However, this has resulted in some members using a different email address than they registered as members with, and so they were being charged an incorrect amount.
I could use more customizable event registration as well.
Here's my current scenario:
For our annual conference, we have 3 registration types: Member, Student, and Nonmember.
We have three registration times: Early, regular, or onsite.
The conference is scheduled for 4 days, with concurrent workshops happening 8 times. 4 workshop slots are 3 hours, and the other 4 are 2 hours. Each workshop slot has 3 different workshops (so 24 distinct workshops).
People can register for the entire conference, all day, or for single workshops.
Attendees who have national certification need to register for Continuing Education Units (CEUs), which cost $5 per workshop. But noncertified members don't need to pay for CEUs.
I'd like the ability for members to select which sessions they are attending without making each workshop its own event, which also doesn't work for attendees paying for all day or full conference attendance.
It would be nice if selecting workshops would automatically calculate which registration type is the cheapest, as well as adding on CEU fees if appropriate.
Currently I have a Workshops multiple choice field for attendees to select which workshops they are planning on attending, but there's no way to limit attendance for those workshops based on who registers first. I also have a CEU fee extra charge calculation field set up.
My organization would also like to see discount codes as an option for events. I am chairing our annual conference this year, and I currently have 27 different registration types because of how Wild Apricot is set up:
There are 3 different registration groups: member, non-member, or student.
There are 3 different registration types: single workshop, single day, or full conference.
There are 3 different registration times: early, regular, or on-site.
Now if I want to give volunteers or presenters a discount on registration, I would have to create a separate discount for each type of discount that I want to give, instead of coupon codes that could be for a specific amount, and would still allow me to track those volunteers or presenters under the correct registration categories.
A discount code would greatly simplify the process for me, because instead now I'm planning on having those volunteers or presenters register for the event, and then I'll manually adjust their invoice before they make a payment, which is a huge pain for me.
Has anyone else had any issues with this? Is there any kind of workaround that I can use?
Thank you for the quick reply.
I'm planning on continuing to use the Forum Summary, but I'm not enabling the Committee or Board forums yet (as they haven't been used yet, because I was hoping that Version 5 would allow for the kind of visibility that I'm looking for). So I'll keep an eye out for this change!
