max number of guests

Beitragvon Schwartz » 23. Mär 2017, 09:59

It will in 3.3 be possible to have invited - or not. When guests are allowed, You can set no max for this. Let us say You have an event where there is a max of 15 participants.
You have a participant ( Klaus ) that participates and he set 1 guest. That was the last thing Klaus did before he took on a 2 week vacation in Thailand - but what he did is that he put 11 guests on his participation, instead as the 1 he thought he did.
Now the leader for the event sees that there is already 13 participants ( Klaus, his guests and the leader himself ) for the event, that has a max of 15.
The leader cannot edit the line for Klaus. He then contacts the admin to get him correct the number - admin says that he also cannot correct the number, unless he tampers in the database, and he does not know if this will function as there is a counter and so.

Could it not be so, that instead of a checkbox for allowing guests, then it was a numeric field that could hold a value ( default should be 0 ) ?
Then when the field is 0, and a user participates and sees the popup ( if comment is allowed ) then no field for guests are shown. If the allowed number is 2, then the field is shown and values between 0 and 2 ( inclusive ) is allowed as input.

Kind regards

Just a short addition, if you try to add guest names instead of numbers in the field "Zusätzliche Plätze" you get the message "Ungültiger Seitenaufruf". To avoid confusion the message should inform that you have to use numbers or more better the field should just accept numbers.

And another addition

Could it be an idea, that in connection with a numeric field for number of guests, that You also had a field date/time ?

This field should have the actual date/time ( for the eventcreation ) if not specified.
You can pick a datetime ( like the datetime for eventstart/end) and then the number of guests is allowed from this time ?

When You put in a number of guests, then the value is checked with the number that is set as allowed AND it is checked with the datetime specified on the event. If actual ( time for trying to participate ) datetime is before the specified datetime OR the number is higher as the specified allowed guests, then the input is not accepted.

I think this could be a smart feature. Then the eventowner could specify a number of guests allowed after a period. When there is seats awailable 10 days after the event is published, then from that day it is allowed members to bring x guests.

and it will be automatically and without any cronjob involved.

Kind regards
Schwartz

Hi all,

the Input will be a number field then.

The other issue would be a new feature request and might be something for the future.

Regards,
Thomas
