Change Registration after Submitting

Hi folks,
I am using EE4 (4.4.8.p) on WordPress 4.1.
I need EE for an event, where one group leader can register his group. And after the registration he needs to have the ability to change the data of the registrants, if – however – someone doesnt make it, or someone new wants to join the group.
There is a discount until one month before the event, and we need the numbers, so we can’t let them wait to register, until they know the registrants for sure.
Do you get the problem? Sorry, I am from Germany, and it’s even complicated to explain in german πŸ˜‰

Thank you, for your help,

You can add this shortcode [FRONTEND_EDIT_REG_LINK] to the Attendee List section of the messages. Just remember to add [ATTENDEE_LINK] to the event list section otherwise you won’t see anything.

This will give the attendee a link to which they can update their details.

Can the attendee also change the number of people in his registration from that link? For example if he initially registers himself and two more people, but later finds out he wants to bring yet another one, making the total number of people in that group four?

(I need this functionality too, so just want to listen in on this thread. Thanks :))

Hi, that is possible if the registrant is the primary registrant.

Note: this can be used for editing the contact information and custom questions. It will not allow them to change their ticket / pricing option.

If that is needed, then an event admin would need to cancel the registration through the WP dashboard and add a new one through Event Espresso –> Events. Then hover over the name of an event and click on Registrations.

On the next page you’ll need a add new registration button at the top of the screen. Click on that button and then add the new registration.

just tested on 4.5.0-beta32.

It does allow me to edit the information submitted, but it does not allow me to add or remove participants from the group, as I asked.

Hope this becomes a feature at some point, though πŸ™‚

i had to translate a lot of the mails, so i just got to testing now. Unfortunately we really need adding registrants to existing groups.
But thanks for the hints πŸ™‚

Hi, the scenario with adding or removing attendees would require the registration to be cancelled and a new one created.
