Looking for any work-arounds and/or best practices for Flex not yet allowing for restricting guest options based on admission item.

    In classic we had the ability to limit what certain guest types saw based on what their primary registrant is registered for in terms of admission items. This feature is not available in Flex (unclear on if or when it will be available) so I was curious if anyone else is running into this problem, and if so, does anyone have any work-arounds to help solve this problem? We rely HEAVILY on being able to restrict certain items and sessions for guests based on the primary attendee's registration so any insight would be much appreciated!

    You can still do this in Flex.  But it is sort of hidden in the Site designer.  

    Event -> Website and Registration -> Event Website.  
    Open Site Designer

    Then in the upper left you can  change a page, or scroll down to the "Registration Paths" section in Site designer.  There is a gear icon which also allows you to change some of the settings around Reg paths that you would be familiar with from Classic.

    Thanks, Tom! However that workaround only pertains to limiting guests by registration type (path). It is better than nothing, but in Classic there is the ability to specifically assign a guest registration type to individual admission items. Some of our registration paths are designed so that they can see dozens of admission item options, and other paths are more restrictive, so limiting guests by registration path isn't quite enough.

    I may not be following this, so forgive me.

    I have several registration types, with a few being for guests only.

    My attendee is MEMBER. Their guest is MEMBER-GUEST.
    I include the reg type widget on the guest registration information page and select MEMBER-GUEST.
    Then under each reg type I select what that person can can register for.

    I've been able to charge attendees and guests different fees as well.

    Would you be able to provide a screenshot of this setup?
