Assigning a reg type to a guest

  • 1.  Assigning a reg type to a guest

    Posted 10-27-2019 00:04
    I'm building a simple flex registration.
    No admission.
    2 sessions.
    2 reg types.

    Member reg type can select
    Session 1
    Session 2

    Member Guest reg type can only select
    Session 2

    In Classic I would use 2 reg types and the guest would be Member Guest.
    I don't see how to do that in flex.

    And I want to be sure that either reg type selects at least one session.
    Without an admission set to minimum 1 session, can I do it with an advanced rule?

    So I see where I can add a reg type to the guest information page.

    If I only want there to be one reg type for the guest, is there a way to avoid selecting it?
    I'd like it to be selected by default as it was in Classic.

    I would like the same.  Default Guest registration type please.

    I'll ask again.
    Is there a way for a guest registration to default to a particular reg type like it did in classic?
    Right now the one and only reg type for a guest needs to be selected. An unnecessary step.

    Following this! People at my organization have differed in how they handled auto-assignment of Reg Types. For one team, they handled all internal events, so they'd assign them to contacts at an account level.

    Because the event I have managed for 5 years has both internal and external attendees, I used registration settings. My internal reg path was limited by email domain (include only X, Y, and Z). My external reg path excluded X, Y, and Z, and all the "free email domains" such as Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail, etc. That ensured only business domains were used and I could export attendee reports and use the domains to see how many people from which company were coming.

    I agree that auto-assigning a reg type to a guest would be the smoothest experience and I'm interested to know if it can be done in Flex, or if it is on the radar as an enhancement.

    Weird, the posting order is out of order.
    Anyways, I was thinking about this again.

    I noticed that when someone registers and added to the invitee, I can preselect their reg type.
    If they add a guest, would that person have that same reg type?

    My guests all need their own reg type so I can limit which admission items they can select.
