Accommodation filter for Invitee Management

    One of our recent in-person events was cancelled, due to covid-19 restrictions.  We converted it to virtual, so we did not have to cancel the event.

    We wanted to write to everyone who had made an accommodation booking to advise them of the refund procedure.

    Unfortunately there is no option in Advanced Search to filter for attendees who have made an accommodation booking.

    The work-around is to export the accommodation report, create a contact list, and then run the Advanced Search based on a contact list.  This workaround is time consuming and (potentially) obsolete as soon as it is created, i.e. if there are any changes to the accommodation bookings, the exported list needs to be run again.

    I honestly cannot believe that you currently cannot filter the attendee list for those who have an accommodation booking 🤯.

    Hi Leon,
    I have come across some odd shortcomings related to data filtering as well. It seems like since it's just a big database, we should be able to slice and dice that data any way we want. I recommend you submit this as an enhancement request.

    Hi Lori

    Yes, when I called customer support re this issue, they suggested I posted something in the community forum to see if there was any widespread support for accommodation filtering.  

    Customer support has forwarded the suggestion as an enhancement request 😅

    I am sure there will be others that would find this filtering function useful.  

    Cheers - Leon

    Absolutely agreed! I've come across this issue multiple times myself, but I was lucky that our events we converted weren't that large so I could manually select those folks. If you end up submitting it as an idea, let us know!

    Great, thanks Lauren...I have submitted the query as an enhancement request.  Hopefully there are others that jump on this to highlight the need 👍
