Is there a way to validate attendees role or capability

Hi there

I’ve recently purchased this plugin and it is oh so close to doing everything we need straight of the box!

The one thing I’m missing for my use case is a validation of the attendees.

My use case looks something like this:
1) someone will create a wp user account
2) that person will create member records for other people, including themselves
3) the wp user will then log in to buy tickets for events, buying on behalf of the other people that they created member records for.
4) the member records they create are the “attendees” in EE terms. They are NOT the wp users (think a family situation – parent creates wp user account for the family, and the individual family people are the members)
5) the attendees will have different levels of “membership” eg Junior, Senior etc
6) the attendees should only be able to register for their appropriate level of membership

One other thing separate to the above – can attendees information be saved to be recalled for future events, or can only the wp user information be pre-loaded upon login?

Hopefully I’ve been clear enough – please let me know if I haven’t.

Can EE do what we need it to do?

Thanks
Aaron

Hi there,

That’s an interesting set up you have there 🙂

So the ‘family members’ are EE contacts? They show up in Event Espresso -> Registrations -> Contact list?

If so how exactly are you storing each contacts ‘membership’ level? Custom fields?

Are you allow multiple ticket purchases in a single group? For example ticket 1 could be ‘junior members’ ticket ticket ‘senior members’?

You’re going to need custom development whichever way this is done and it’s not something we can provide at this time, but we may be able to help point you in the right direction. (Just to be really clear so there’s no mixed expectations, we are more than happy to point you to any examples we have that may help to give you a starting point but we can’t create this feature for you as it requires a lot more than a quick snippet)

One other thing separate to the above – can attendees information be saved to be recalled for future events, or can only the wp user information be pre-loaded upon login?

Hmmm, not for this kind of setup as EE won’t know which specific details to bring in based on the ticket selection unless I’m missing something.

I’ll do some testing on this and see but other than pulling in previously answers questions I don’t think will work.
