We have a 5 week series of classes - we wanted one purchase to register the attendee for all 5 weeks with one purchase. We created a repeating event, but we were unable to turn off registration for events 2-5. What we ended up doing was creating the first event as the main event then created a duplicate repeating events with registration off, linking them all to the main event in the description.

While it has been suggested to just list the dates in the description and have the event span the weeks that the event takes place. That does not meet our needs. We want to be able to track attendees per event. For now, we will just upload the registrants to the other events and mark the attendees.

As I understand the price of the event is the same, regardless the classes the participant wants to attend. You can extend the participation with a custom field that registers to register the classes.

  • I give this a tick as I understand you to say, use a single event, add a custom field to those Participants which has eg 5 tickboxes, one for each of the weeks, then you can just record who attended probably by using a simple Batch Update via Profile. Nice. Thanks. THat got me out of a bad approach of multiple linked events. – petednz - fuzion Apr 12 '19 at 4:39
