Register multiple attendees in one purchase under separate names & email
When someone clicks to 3 RSVPs attending - I want to have them add each individual attendee name. Right now RSVPs are only allowed to enter one name.
This is planned for an upcoming Event Tickets release.
When searching for an attendee in the attendee list, it would be helpful to be able to search by all fields, not just attendee name. For instance, we have attendees purchasing multiple tickets and a custom field is the name of the attendee. Currently we can only search by name of purchaser, not name of attendee.
@Ankit Mehta - I'd be interested in learning how far you got with this idea. Coming from Eventbrite, this was something we could easily do.
Purchaser info is absolutely useless in our case as often an assistant makes purchases for many individuals in an organization.
In Eventbrite, you could specify which info you wanted to collect per registrant (to a certain extent).
It would be great if there was an option at checkout that when a person buys two tickets, that at checkout, user 1 has details to fill in and then user 2 has details to also fill in.

Currently we are trying to achieve the same with a custom code and if it works well, We will be happy to share the idea here :)
Fantastic idea! :)
Just imagine. I want to go at the event because is so great. I'm with my friends i want to invite them. I buy 15 tickets. On eah ticket, i will fill the textefields and put each name/surname/mail for my friends. I pay and i will receive my mail with all attendee. But i will be the only one who will receive this mail.
If i go to the event not in the same time that my friend, how they can have their tickets?
Should be great that even if a buyer takes few tickets, when textflieds (per tcket) are filled, that each e-mail receive their ticket!!!
I agree with Huzan Forbes Spenta - emailing out tickets to individual attendees, not solely the purchaser, makes sense.
On multi-ticket orders - a buyer needs transactional information (order confirmation etc.) - not the hassle of then emailing on tickets to individuals. Please automate this simple request (you already enable emailing out on the platform).
Of course - it will require a new classification of a ticket field as an email address - so this other suggestion needs implementing at the same time - https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/18020920-more-types-and-validation-options-for-ticket-field
"I also custom coded that my client sees the attendee names in the attendee list, instead of useless purchaser names. "
@Saskia - If you would be willing to share the snippet for this feature, it would be a big help for my implementation. I totally agree with you that this should be default behavior!
Thread in support forum (december 2016 and still nothing has happened to the inacceptable attendee list view... had to custom code it all so clients can actually work with that half baked piece of code..):
Currently as also mentioned in this thread:
there is no possiblity to see the names of the attendees, if entered on checkout, in the attendee list. Instead we see purchaser's name. Useless.
Why is that? Isn’t this the attendee list??
Also there should be a possiblity to enter or modify the attendee’s names at a later time, directly within the woocommerce order AND in client my account page, when the client knows the names and provides the info to the event host. NO extra page. Thanks!
There is no possiblity, in a recurring event attendee list, to export the attendees filtered by ticketname/type.
Why not? This way the event host could instantly see a list of only one event’s attendees within the series, when using recurring event with only one ticket pool for all event dates.
3. I feel like the entire attendee section is kind of half-baked. Have you tried the search filter you implemented above the attendee list? It doesnt give me any useful output. Well at least not when using it in recurring event attendee lists.
I custom coded a solution so my client can actually USE the search filter properly.
I also custom coded a solution so my client can instantly export a list of attendees with same ticket type (useful for recurring event ticket pools.)
I also custom coded that my client sees the attendee names in the attendee list, instead of useless purchaser names.
This should be part of the ticket plugin by default.
I feel sorry for those who buy the plugin and are unable to code these essential functionalities themselves.

Send out email notifications to the person who has booked their ticket along with it if they have booked tickets for friends. Each friend should receive an email.
