Pre-sale question about Attendees ad Wp user

Hi,

I have a question about registering attendees as Wp users.

I want attendees to be able to register an account in which they can edit there own profile and see which courses they registered to.

I was looking at “WP User Integration” but the documentation is only accessible when I buy the add-on (quite frustrating as I would like to read about it’s functions before buying)

My question:
1) Is it possible to have attendees register theme self a account in Event Espresso?
2) If so have attendees the possibility to cancel there ticket and have the ticket returned to the pool (most of my tickets are free class tickets)
3) What is teh feature set of the “WP User Integration” add-on? https://eventespresso.com/wiki/members-integration-addon/#add_member_pricing_and_creating_member_only_events

How can I read the user docs without buying the add-on. I jut need to check how things work and if this add-on meets my specifications

Thanks, Bart

Hi Bart,

1) Is it possible to have attendees register theme self a account in Event Espresso?

I am assuming what you mean is “Is it possible for an event registrant to register themselves as a WP User at the same time as registering for the event?”

If my understanding is correct then the answer is yes and no.

No, WP User Integration does not do this by default.

Yes, it can still be done as we have a small PHP function that can be dropped into a custom functions file (theme or elsewhere) that will register the attendee as a user.

The original https://gist.github.com/sethshoultes/5574217
An alternative https://gist.github.com/Apina/9596012

2) If so have attendees the possibility to cancel there ticket and have the ticket returned to the pool (most of my tickets are free class tickets)

Yes. With the WP User Integration addon active, attendees can cancel their tickets from the My Events page in their Profile. We also have a shortcode that can be added to a page to show the My Events data on the front of the site (only when logged in).

A cancelled spot will be added back to the event capacity.

3) What is teh feature set of the “WP User Integration” add-on? https://eventespresso.com/wiki/members-integration-addon/#add_member_pricing_and_creating_member_only_events

Member only pricing
Member only events
My events page (profile and front end)
Cancellation of events.

How can I read the user docs without buying the add-on. I jut need to check how things work and if this add-on meets my specifications

Unfortunately, some of our documentation is restricted to licence holders only.

Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have though, as we are more than happy to answer them for you.

Hi Dean,

Thanks for the clear feedback.

However I need some more material to discuss the possibilities with my clients. I need this material to build trust with my client that the system I present them with is the system that’ll work for them.

Having the documentation locked down cripples my client trust building process I just can’t say, I haven’t read any documentation or seen any screenshots myself, but Dean from Event Espresso told me that it’ll work.

I’ll need some more material to discuss the possibilities with my clients to build trust with them, so they sign off on paying for the license.

So please bear with me and please provide me with some documentation & screenshots of how things work and look like in the front end and backend. Your answers looks like it’ll cover the specs they have, but it’s just to little for a business discussion.

Thanks for understanding, Bart

Hi,

I do understand.

Here are some screenshots.

Members section on the event – http://take.ms/LUjMw
Dashboard My Events – http://take.ms/FFiXV
[ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS] – http://take.ms/QhZOk
Settings – http://take.ms/gEUDy
Autofill – http://take.ms/C1CsV
Member only front end -http://take.ms/inFSK
Same event but single page – http://take.ms/J5GjP
Same event but with site registration turned on – http://take.ms/vsuKi

Documentation wise, there really isn’t much to it.

Events can be set to member only, so unless a user is logged in they cannot even register for the event.

Each event will have Member prices, which need to be set, so if a user is logged in they will see those prices instead of the “public” ones.
The events look no different, it’s just the prices that change.

The My Events section is available in the users WordPress dashboard or on the front end via a shortcode.

If the user fills out their profile the data will be autofilled into the registration forms so long as the user is logged in (name, email and address only).

I hope that helps.
