EDITED: We are using Eventcalender extension to display all events on one page.

For example Yoga Classes happens every week on Monday. Now for an attendee who would like to book 1st week, then 5th, 9th, 15th, 22nd and some more weeks of the year has to keep registering for each week. It could be frustrating for attendee to come back every-time & enter same details to register. We thought of creating repeating events. but that does not allow to register to select multiple events at single checkout. Is there any option where CiviEvent would act like a checkout? A good example of my idea is sagenda.com. If not, how can I get an alternative checkout function like this? Or am I missing something in existing CiviEvent? Please suggest. Thanks

  • it would help me if you could show more clearly what the various options are. eg you say 'we have an event that runs every week', then you say 'to select multiple days'. So am not clear – petednz - fuzion Apr 18 at 19:29
  • Sorry! Edited the main post – Tapash Apr 18 at 19:47
  • would offering each week as a price set checkbox be useful? – petednz - fuzion Apr 18 at 22:50
  • Yes I thought of it. But would 52 items in a price set not be excessive ? Also specify date to each price set items would be a lot of manual work. Some date may need to be excluded. And every time this type of repeated events will needed to do this type of manual adjustment of date. – Tapash Apr 19 at 4:37

There was work on an Event Cart function for CiviEvent, but it was never completed. However, there are folks who use it. I would expect to put in some developer time if you want to use it.

Enable it at Administer » CiviEvent » CiviEvent Component Settings by checking Use Shopping Cart Style Event Registration.

There are some guides to using it from Cividesk and in the CiviCRM cookbook, as well as some older documentation.

  • Thanks. I think this is what I am looking for. Is there a way to integrate with eventcalendar extension or similar. If you are willing to help developing please contact me – Tapash Apr 19 at 22:09

    We did some analysis of Event Cart and advice was that it was going to be a lot of work, so we instead invested more effort in making Webform_civicrm work for multiple folk signing up for multiple events – petednz - fuzion Apr 20 at 0:00
  • @petednz-fuzion You should post that as an answer, I'd upvote it! – Jon G - Megaphone Tech Apr 20 at 4:19
  • @petednz-fuzion thanks for your input. can you please add as answer on how I can use webform in my specific situation? – Tapash Apr 20 at 5:39
  • I found this checkout function is broken in CiviCRM 5.11+. So it didn’t really help. How much time and effort may it take for a developer to make it stable release? Anyone interested? – Tapash Apr 25 at 6:27
