Multiple Attendee Registration

The attendees CSV report does not have some of the attendees parent information because a parent can register multiple students.The first student the parent register has the parent information but the rest do not.

Is there any way to have a parent register multiple students and at the same time the CSV report has the parent information for all the students the parent registered.

Thank you,

Hi there,

Each ticket within EE is a registration and each registration has its own set of questions to collect, so the CSV pulls in the questions for each specific registration per row. As the parent’s info is assigned to the primary registrant on your event that’s the only row that contains that info but as it always included within the primary registrant’s info may I ask why you need it repeated in all of the other rows?

It is possible to repeat the details for each additional registrant within the CSV, however, its going to increase the number of queries ran during the export which could possibly cause problems, so I’m just checking if there isn’t another way to get the info you need first.

To communicate with the parents for each individual student, we need to match the students with the parents, so if we do not have the parent information for like a hundred students we have to go back and find the primary registrant and copy the email from there takes time.
If there is a way to repeat the details for each additional registrant within the CSV would be really helpful.

Thank you

Ok, you can try this snippet:

That snippet pulls the answers for the primary registrant and uses those answers for any ‘unanswered’ questions on the additional registrants. In your case the additional registrants can’t answer those questions so they will be empty (meaning the primary registrant’s answer should be used).

Add that to a custom functions plugin on your site, we have some documentation on creating one here:

I have created the custom plugin as described in the document here,

under the plugins directory ( /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/), but When I

go to WordPress–>plugins, I do not see the new plugin to activate.

Any advise?

Thank you,

Please disregard the previous email. I have figured that out and it is working now.

Thank you so much for your help!
