    I merged another very similar thread into this one, they should be solved together – the registration to multiple events should be simple and fast if possible. There are a number of suggestions in comments on how to achieve this.

    Hello,

    Group registration for our cutomer requires a Team name (text field), as well as a team Category (radio buttons). (See other wish list items re: text field length restrictions and field value validations).

    Currently this information is required to be filled out during registration for every group (team) members. We are requesting that there be fields for group event registrations which are only required to be filled out for the first registrant.

    This allows the registration of groups to be done with much less redundant information, and will eleminate possible input errors which can cause registration problems at the event.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hi,

    We need a text field type which can be validated to be Unique for registrants for an event. This request seems similar to the email address field in the Contact Database, but unlike that field which looks through all contacts, this field need only be unique for all registrants to a particular event.

    We register teams for some of our events and allow them to create unique team names, of a specified maximum number of characters, for thier team. Each team name MUST be unique, but there is no way for this to be enforeced currently.

    This is one of several requirements which I have added to the wishlist in order to make group registration work for our client, a large organizer of road and trail running events.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hi,

    The new features for registering groups for events is a signingicant step in the right direction. Great work!

    Since we register teams of certain sizes, we need to make sure that the team has at least two members and not more than some larger number. It can not be indefinite.

    This is one of several smaller features which we need to make the new group event registration work useful for us.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hi,

    The new feature for multiple event registrations is a very significant step forward. However, it falls short of being useful to one of our main customers. That customer stages races which include teams of up to 8 people (but no more than 8).

    Here is a list of features which they need to be in place in order for this important new feature to work for them. They are looking for the ability to:

    1) set a limit on the number of additional people who can be registered (e.g, 7 additional or 8 total),

    2) update the list of additional people registered (by the original registrant) until a specified date (e.g, add two people now and then add more people later until the time limit, and max registration limit (see #1 above) has been reached), - After further testing it seems that the original registrant can keep the registration in a "Pending" state that may resolve part of this issue!

    3) create a registration for the initial registrant and associate it with a group/team name,

    4) either: list the name of the registered groups/teams (not just the name of the person which created the initial registration) so that a person can search the list to ensure uniqueness, or the ability of the system to veryify uniquiness of a field (group/team name in this case),

    5) specify the exact number of characters of a text field on a registration form (group/team name can not be more than 20 characters long on two lines of no more than 10 characters each), and

    6) modify the wording of "guest" to something more appropriate on the registration form (e.g, team member, etc.),

    The customer's original request asked for the ability of "guests" to add themselves to a named "team", but requiring the person that created the original registration, (the team captain) to add the other members will work with a modification to their team registration work flow.

    I look forward to working with you to understand these requested features in more detail.

    It would be very helpful to have the ability to specify a negative amount in the Radio buttons with extra cost" selection on the registration form.

    I would use it as follows:

    One of our upcoming events as registration types of:

    $30 for event #1 - Non Members

    $25 for event #1 - Members

    $20 for event #2 - Non Members

    $15 for event #2 - Members

    Plus discounts of:

    $10 if less than 18 years old (not validated in any way)

    $5 for members of company X

    etc.

    It would require fewer registration types if I could just deduct the discounts from the basic member/non-member fees.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hello,

    The text fields available when creating event registration forms are fixed lengths. We need, for several pieces of data, to be able to specify a fixed number of characters in text fields.

    For example, we allow event registrants to specifiy a name on their race bibs. The names can be no longer than 10 characters, however the text fields available are much longer that that.

    I will be creating a few wish list items such as this one requesting more choices on existing and new fields types for event registration forms.

    Thanks,

    Joe
