I'm currently working on a new install of CiviCRM to manage our co-operative membership. Membership is paid annually per household - each householder additionally makes an initial one-off £1 investment of share capital which confers voting rights in the coop.
I've done a LOT of reading around household membership and I'm aware that it's an underdeveloped area in Civi - sadly we're not in a position to cover the 200-400 hours of work that Lobo suggests would be required make it work as desired.
There seem to be a few people who've crafted successful work-arounds either with organisational subgroups or using Drupal webform integration to create complex sign-up pages. However, I've also seen a number of people years later bemoaning having taken the 'household route' initially.
As I'm at the beginning of the process and some of the forum discussions are a number of years old, I'm looking for a steer on the current developments and best practice. In particular:
- Is there a recommended route for allowing online self management of family groups?
- Our preferred CMS is wordpress, does the active development of Caldera Forms integration suggest a potential route, or will we have to adopt Drupal for complex webforms?
Many thanks for any pointers.
