Is it possible to present to the users their choices/purchases ordered by date then by time in all or some of the following steps of the user buying experience? We do have the Multiple Event Registration add-on.

– Items in their Cart
– on Step 2 adding Attendee
– on step 3 Payment Checkout
– PDF Receipt
– PDF Invoice
– Emailed message “Registration Confirmation”

Currently the order on all of these is dictated by the order the users adds items to their cart.

The order in the cart seems to be where the change needs to be made to affect the rest of the steps in the process.

Ordering by date and time would greatly help parents who are purchasing multiple classes for multiple kids. Some parents are purchasing 10 or more classes for 2 kids. I’m trying to create a streamlined and straight forward process so they don’t accidentally add kids to the wrong class. You can see the work we have done so far on our registration page and with the checkout process. We’ve customized it quite a bit. Mostly hiding everything that might cause visual noise for parents while checking out.

So can it be done? I have a developer working on the site now.

Any other suggestions like “read this thread”, along the lines of making the process easier, are greatly welcomed. Thank you guys for providing an awesome plugin that has helped us to grow so much!

Hi Micah,

The above sections all use what we call line items which build out the transaction and link the events, tickets, registrations, prices, discounts etc all together.

Currently, we don’t have a method you can use to order the line items each time a ticket is added to the cart so the user would need to add the tickets in the correct order for this. We also do not have any other threads showing examples of doing this as its not something we’ve done previously.

So in short, this isn’t currently available.

I can add this as a feature request, however, it important to note that this is not something that has been requested multiple times, so would be considered lower priority than most of our more requested features.

Sidenote, I’ve previously registered onto your site for some other testing and like what your doing with EE 🙂
