I have been reading with interest about the new recurring contribution feature for event registrations via Webform CiviCRM (see here and here). We have a large population of our users who need to do payment plans and this seems like a great option to support that.
My one concern comes from this (older) thread, where the author writes: "CiviCRM Core can't (yet) associate a Recurring series with an Event registration."
The way I interpret this is:
- the user registers for an event at (e.g.) $100.
- Their first payment is recorded as a contribution record against the event registration.
- Their subsequent payments are not recorded as contributions against the event registration.
- So their event registration will still show them owing money, even when the contribution series is fully paid.
Is that correct? And more importantly -- is it still the case today?
