Good afternoon, Garth.
We are trying to have a profile page per customer that allow us to gather and keep track of user info and behavior to anticipate course needs and possible future offers.
Would really appreciate if we could arrange for a conference call so our development team can clarify any doubts before implementation and launching.
Thank you for your concern and support.
An event in Event Espresso 3 can be set to member only through the event editor:
The following shortcode will show a list of events for an attendee or registrant:
Learndash is compatible with Event Espresso 4.
Let us know if you have any other questions.
Good afternoon Lorenzo,
Must revise these items to make sure I understand.
1) An event in Event Espresso 3 can be set to member only through the event editor.
2)The following shortcode will show a list of events for an attendee or registrant.
A few questions then…
And one more related issue…
Thanks for all your support.
1) You will need to have the WP USer Integration (Members) addon for EE3 installed and activated. Once the event has had the Member Only option set to yes, the registrant must be logged into the site to register for the event.
2) That shortcode (part of WP User Integration) will only show data to a logged in user and only their information. Also if they register for an event when NOT logged in, it will nbot be associated with them and will not show on their list.
“Are these two items functions of the current EE3 platform that we use or does it need to be updated to EE4?”
They are available via WP User Integration addon for EE3. Currently EE4 does not have a system like that in place, though in theory you could use and membership plugin as events are custom post types in EE4.
“if a registration/LogIn can be seamlessly integrated to the EE3 or 4 module in our page, could it distinguish between regular users and VIP users.”
Unfortunately not. If a Human Resource person registers people for an event then it is logged under the Human Resource persons user account. The other attendees would not be able to access that information.
I hope that helps!
This brings up a few more questions then…
As seen on the EE Registration Template in our site:
Once these 9 max registrations are generated:
Basically: How can we track who registrated who if one user can register other 9?
2) The registration details of each of the max 9 will be different… 9 different LogIn Profiles
Does this info get matched with a member profile if the details entered by hostess coincide?
How does this system avoid duplicating user memberships/profiles?
There is a note on a forum (from January 2014 so this might have been updated) that indicates that in order to see a member only event page (not register but to display page) , one must be a registered member. Is that still the case?
3) How can “WP Registration” AddOn (also known as Members) could help us reach the purpose of having autofilled features in profile recognition for registered members?
Thanks so much for your help. We are new on this, and learning lots with your help.
Event Espresso 3 does not create accounts on its own but you can do this by using sample coding like this:
It can be added to your child theme’s functions.php file or a site specific plugin:
Regarding the functionality, if a single attendee registers for a batch of the tickets under one email, then they will have an account created and the events will be associated with their account.
This would limit tracking of the registrations to the primary registrant.
If the registration information is different, then a new account should be created for each email.
The sample code above has a check in place to prevent duplicate emails being used for an account.
An attendee/registrant would need to be logged in to see and use the member pricing. Otherwise, regular pricing will be used.
Also, the WP user integration (members) addon does assist with autofill:
Thank you, Lorenzo. Very helpful. Will keep in touch as we implement the tools on the site. Thanks again.
