All of our client's members are either other associations or business "associate members." Many of the associations are managed by association management firms. The association managers need to track payment for each event registrant but they want the convenience of multiple registrations for the online registration. Similarly, Associate members may have satellite offices which need to receive individual invoice but they want one person in the organization to do all the registrations.
We just realized that partial payments from all the business/management entities apparently can't be applied to each registered user. So if "Jo Bob" pays his fee, for example, they don't want that payment to be applied to "Mary Jane."
I don't see a clear path to resolve these competing needs. Does someone out there have a similar need or know of a solution to this user dilemma?
