A way to reserve a spot without paying in EE4?

WP 3.9.2
EE 4.2.9, no add-ons
New installation

From what I understand, in EE3, registrations with the “Pending” payment status would still reserve a spot for the event. It seems that in EE4, registrations with the “Pending Payment” payment status do not reserve a spot or count toward the limited number of tickets available anymore.

The nature of my event is such that I want users to be able to register and claim a spot, even if they cannot pay right away. I would just set the default status to Approved, but I also still want to keep track of which attendees have and haven’t paid through EE (and pull that data for a publicly displayed event roster). Is there a payment method or option that can make this happen, or maybe a piece of custom code I could use to make Pending Payment registrations reserve a spot?

Hi Natalie,

Really the only way to do that would be to set them as Approved and then use the individual event Registrations overview to see who has and hasn’t paid (screenshot )

Thanks, your reply pointed me in the right direction to grab the transaction status from the database for my event roster. Just what I needed! =)
