How to edit participant address after submission.

My setup is WordPress 5.2.2 and Event Espresso 4.10.0.p.
How the participant (main register user) edit his (her) address information after submitting the registration?
We want users to have the ability to edit their profiles. Currently if the family moves or enter the info incorrectly they can’t change personal and address groups. How can we achieve an edit option? Am I missed something?

Hi there,

At the end of the registration, on the ‘thank you’ page there is a link to edit their registration details. If they click that link they can edit all of the questions asked during that registration.

If you prefer you can also include a link to edit the registration, within the email they receive after they have registered?

Are you using the WP user integration add-on? The same link is included in the ‘My Events section of that add-on.

Note that ‘address’ questions and others asked during the registration are questions linked to the registration, not the user, so updating them on a single registration does not update them anywhere else.

This is the exact problem. We need the user (the main registrant) be able to edit his main contact details like name, email and address. Using that link, or using [ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS] only allows to edit the information per registration and not for contact.

My apologies but the above info is incorrect.

The address questions are linked to the contact, meaning if they update that info on a registration linked to the contact the address details on the contact are updated.

I’m not sure why I grouped Address questions with registrations above as its obviously incorrect and my mistake.

So in order for the user to be able to edit the address questions, they need to either edit them during a registration or use the edit function about and edit the address details then save. The above will obviously only work if you are collecting the address question group on the event they create/edit the registration on.

This is exactly the case, it is only works for a registration create/edit function. Can we distinguish that somehow from the registration form? I mean is it possible to go to some link and be able to edit only certain fields (address group for instance)? Thanks!

Not within Event Espresso, it’s intended that the fields would be shown on the registration form and the user can edit them as needed.

It would be possible to build out your own custom form and then when updating that form use the values set to update the EE_Contact, but it’s going to need some custom development as EE doesn’t have anything like that outside of the registration forms.

To do what you need you’d basically need a ‘member edit’ page (which you could do with any membership plugin) and then hook into the save function of that and update the EE_COntact on that call. If you are not currently working with a developer capable of the above we recommend contacting the folks at codeable who may be able to build something custom for you.
