Integration of users and manual event registration

Hi there,

We have installed the s2member plugin along with EE4 and the User Integration add-on. We imported users from a previous site and therefore all of the users already have their contact details within their WP User (address, phone etc).

It happens more than we would like that we have to register someone manually for an event through the WordPress admin, but this process is much more difficult than we would like and the s2member and EE contact information does seem to sync beyond the first/last name and email.

Currently when we go in to add someone it requires you to manually type in the First and last name and Email and IF you get it EXACTLY right, it will connect the registration with that user. Though, it won’t even pull all of the information into the EE contact because the address fields do not sync up. I am getting the sense I am going to need to modify my column names to help it sync at least on the front end for users (not even clear if that would work), but it looks like I would still have to type it all manually on the backend.

All of this just seems very tedious. Is is possible for us to have it so that we can simply select from a drop-down of WP Users and it will pre-populate the fields? Or sync the users with the EE contact list and have a drop down from those?

Please advise, Thank you.

Rachael

Hi Rachael,

Currently the Event Espresso 4 WP User Integration doesn’t have any dropdown select features in the admin. There’s a proposed feature request being tracked here:

You are invited to vote for and leave a comment for this feature.

Hi Josh,

Thanks. I will definitely add my vote for that.

As for the front end, when a user registers is there a way to add more fields like First/Last name and Email that auto-populate and sync with their profile?

Yes. You can make it so address + phone fields (from the Address question group) are auto-populated by adding some PHP code that hooks in to the form and applies the information from their contact record:

https://github.com/eventespresso/ee-code-snippet-library/blob/master/addons/eea-wp-user/jf_filter_address_answer_for_wpuser.php

You can also make it so custom fields (from other question groups) are auto-populated by adding some PHP code that hooks in to the form and applies the information from their previous registration:

https://github.com/eventespresso/ee-code-snippet-library/blob/master/addons/eea-wp-user/mn_wp_user_addon_save_custom_answers_too.php

You can add the above to a functions plugin. Please note that the opening PHP tag from those snippets should not be added to the plugin because the plugin file should always start with an opening PHP tag.
