I have what may be a tricky situation regarding registration and waitlists.
We have an event where we have two potential types of registrants: residents of a jurisdiction and people who live outside of the jurisdiction. People pick if there's a resident or non-resident in price options when they go through event registration.
Those who pick the Resident price option should go through registration and fee payment normally and end up with a "registered" status when they're done.
We want people who pick the Non-Resident price option to not pay anything and be set to a waitlist status once they're done with registration. We would then manually move them to "registered" if there's enough room after a certain date.
Question 1: Is this a normal part of CiviEvent functionality that I'm just not able to find?
Question 2: We had a developer set up a price set like this that does work. We copied it, changed label names, and tried to use the new price set for another event, and the non-registrants are ending up "registered" instead of "waitlist." Any advice on how to successfully replicate that original price set? I just recently got access to cPanel for our site and I'm not sure what to look for here.
I appreciate any advice you may have. Thanks in advance.
