    Current functionality:
    In event listing you can define event details and extra information for confirmation email.

    Desired functionality:
    Would like to add section for event promo or synopsis that can be used for Newsletter email. This would be short description to raise awareness and give brief description of event. This would be a field in the event that would have macro that can be used in event email or email template.

    We do this as event "templates" within the Events Admin area. We have social events and education events which have different setups. We have events in different geographical areas that require different logos, tags and information (text) in the event. We create and save the event "as a template" (we even put template in the name), keeping the date far in the future (this keeps the templates listed first in the Admin event listing). We simply use the Duplicate button on the event template to create a new event with that particular format. Modify the title, content and dates for the new event we are setting up and we're done. Event text, tags, location, registration types, emails can all be templated in this manner.

    I will add my desire for this feature to be escalated to be in the next release of software. This is long overdue and should be easy to deliver. You already have emails configurable on the event, we just need to be able to configure them to be sent after the event occurs. Having the ability to send follow-up emails (2 or 3 of them) would be very beneficial as we do it for all our events.

    The workarounds suggested in earlier comments is over-burdensome on our chapter leadership and makes for a mess that must eventually be cleaned up.

    This feature needs escalated to the top of the list to work on. Your community has been telling you this for years.

    I am reading into this request that an administrator will have ability to print all members' name badges from one place.

    the events on the contact profile says their event registration is "Confirmed". It needs to say "Attended" if they were checked in at the event. So they can print this page as self-service proof of attendance.

    Sorry for the late update.

    The first step was finished and emails can now be carbon copied to contact’s alternative emails. To do so the contact fields which store the alternative emails must be explicitly marked on the email setting page.

    Unsubscribing will unsubscribe all alternative emails simultaneously because they all belong to the very same account. The person clicking “unsubscribe” is warned about this on the unsubscribe page.

    For now we paused the development of this feature. but not for good. :) So I’m changing this wish status back to “collecting comments”.

    Thank you everyone for a valuable feedback.

    Absolutely, this would be a huge hit for non-profit associations.

    Chief Apricot, this has been talked about for over 5 years, has there been any progress on making it reality. I can put you in touch with my international association with 113 chapters that is currently considering new content management system for its 113 chapters. At least 10 of our chapters are already on Wild Apricot. If you make this reality, you may be able to captured the rest of our chapters and international association.

    Two big requirements we have:

    1) Chapters are not allowed to accept members who are not members of the international association. I see this as a configurable item as other organizations may not have this requirement.

    2) We wish to offer members the ability to pay international and chapter membership dues at the same time. Funds should go directly to each the international association and the chapter(s) based on their membership dues. We also need the ability for members to join multiple chapters, but again they must be a member of the international association first. Having linked accounts between international and chapters makes validation of international membership convenient.

    Our chapters would need their own accounts/websites, and international will have their own account. International should be able to link to all chapter accounts. I read in another thread that international admins be able to log into chapter accounts. We would like this feature as well. Each chapter would have their admins as well.

    This is number ONE on our wishlist and desire a solution within six months. There doesn't seem to be much effort put in the design and development of this feature, but upon reading this thread it is a highly desired feature.

    We hold a few different types of events. One that we will hold in fall 2015 will require a % or $ discount for companies that send us 10 registrants from the same company. We wish to incent these companies to send multiple employees to our event.

    My suggestion for design of this feature is that along with event details, registration form, registration types, emails; I can define "Discount codes". I can define a discount code name (which I will give to the company to use during registration, a discount % or $, and which registration types this discount can be applied to. An option to round the resulting registration fee to the nearest dollar would be a super benefit as well.

    Then as people register for an event, a "Discount" box appears during the registration process. There should be a "Apply" button next to the discount box. So they register all their people to attend, enter a discount code and click the "Apply" button. This will present them with their total amount of the registration with the discount applied.

    Since many of your community has requested this feature and continue to post on this feature since 2008, can we put this on the top of the list of features to be developed? What is the current activity of working on this feature, when might it be introduced? We need to plan for our 2015 and 2016 events that require this feature, and need to know if we can use WA for the registration of these events. If not, we need to look into alternative registration methods for these events.
