  • 1.  Restricting roommates by gender

    Posted 10-13-2021 12:03
    Is there a way to restrict roommate matches by gender in Flex?  I see how to do it by registration type, but would also like to do it by gender.  I know we used to do it in Classic, but am not finding a way to do it with Flex.

    Hi Juli, 

    That's a great point, the reference article https://support.cvent.com/apex/CommunityArticle?id=000067258 doesn't mention being able to restrict by anything further than registration type. A possible work-around would be to create room types for the attendees to select that would reflect that choice (maybe "Double room - women, Double room - men, Double room - any gender"). 

    Hopefully they reintroduce that option, though I'm guessing that the addition of "non-binary" and "prefer not to say" to their gender options in the gender field might have broken whatever they had working in Classic. 

    Cheers,

    Hi Juli, 

    When attendees are given the option to select their roommate from a list and "Gender" is being collected in the hotel form, then the available roommate list will automatically limit available options to those of the same gender. 

    Please let me know if you have any follow up questions!
