MER Single Email Confirmation + WP User Registration Summary

I’ve seen this topic only in the deprecated forum and wanted to bring it up as something that is still very needed by many EventEspresso users such as myself.

The request is to have the option to send a single email confirmation that summarizes all event registrations performed in a single checkout transaction with the Multiple Events Registration add-on enabled.

Ideally there should also be the option to send out a summary email notification of all current existing registrations for a single user with the WP User Integration add-on enabled.

In fact having that second feature would cancel my need for the first.

Hi Adal,

It turns out you can make the first one happen with the current version. Please see this related forum post:

Thanks Josh,

I followed the instructions you had provided for Emily and though the [attendee_event_list] shortcode does work like a charm, I am still getting one email per event.

I did indeed add the function to custom_functions.php (which I have been using successfully to create new shortcodes) and changed the email settings as you indicated.

Am I missing something?

Hi Adal,

I’m not sure. I went back and set this code up on another test site just to be sure and it’s working as it did on my other test site. It’s sending out a summary of events to the admin and to the in the payment email

Are you running an older version of Event Espresso? I tested this out on a newer version.

Hey Josh, I’m using Event Espresso with Espresso Members, Espresso Multiple and custom_shortcodes and custom_functions.

To test a theory, I removed the shortcode from the payment confirmation email template (set to YES) and left it in the regular confirmation email (set to NO) to see email is being sent and whether the options are working or not… and it looks like the options select are not working because the table IS included (see screenshots of options and emails received).

You might try adding the custom function to the end of your theme’s functions.php file or include in in a custom functionality plugin.

I’ve had some trouble in the past running code from the /uploads directory on WPEngine.

Hey Josh,

I have quite a few functions in the custom_functions.php file and all are running just fine.

Is the fact that all my events are free possibly related to the script not working (I see that it is based on Payment Status)?

That could very well be. The Payment emails don’t get sent when it’s a free event, and the hook that the custom function is removing, action_hook_espresso_email_after_payment, doesn’t run when a free event is processed since there isn’t a payment involved.

There may be a way to adapt this so it works for free events. I’ll take a look when I get a chance to see if I can figure this out.

Here’s a gist that makes a slight modification to a few email functions that will make this happen:

Thanks Josh!

That worked like a charm, (with the exception that it still sending out the regular confirmation email instead of the payment email which I really couldn’t care less).

You solved it!
