Re-Ordering Columns in the Registration CSV Report.

I took a look in the community forums for ideas to re-order the columns in the Registration CSV Report. Here is the problem. I use the optional EE PROMOTIONS plugin and understand that the CSV is assembled for each event using the info and questions the administrator configures. Then the info that comes from the optional plugins is tacked onto the end.

Unfortunately, with different events hosting different questions, the TRANSACTION PROMOTIONS column assembles at the end and does not line up properly when adding several events in one spreadsheet to analyze.

Can I add a filter/function to a code snippet to move the TRANSACTION PROMOTIONS column to follow the core transactional columns? For example, just after the TICKET DATETIMES column.

I would prefer that event questions (which vary from event to event) follow all important financial info. Promotions are more important to transactional info than attendee questions. In the worst case, it might be okay to display Transaction Promotions first, ahead of the core info, if it can not be inserted where I suggested.

Hi there,

Yes, this is possible but you’ll need to use a snippet to do it.

Something like this:

You can add that to a custom functions plugin on the site, we have some documentation for creating one here:

Thank you for the snippet! I added it and tested the export. It works very well.

I can get my financial data more quickly and the Event managers can keep the autonomy of asking as many questions during the course registration process.
