I'm testing CiviCRM for a camp, and some of the families that come to a week of Family Camp are very large (some have 10+ kids). I tried the "Register additional participants" method for a large test family, and it
- Took forever,
- Generated massively long email receipts, and
- Didn't generate any family relationships, shared addresses, etc on the backend. This isn't surprising, but it was depressing to think how much manual cleanup this will require after every single registration.
Household registrations seem to be a good potential solution. I cannot find a mechanism for anyone to act as a household, but some of the settings, such as allowing a household to edit member's addresses, seem to indicate that this is possible.
Is there a way that an external constituent can register a household for an "event" (camp session)?
