Hello Toolset team,

I am using Toolset trial version to build my site, and hoping it's able to do what I need.
I would like to ask your advice and guidance to help me build my site.

What I would like to achieve is an event e-commerce site with the following features:

1) Users can register to become event organizers
2) Organizers can post/edit event products in front-end.
3) Organizers can view list of buyers/attendees of each event

What I have done so far:
- Set up taxonomy named "States" (to categorize event by states)
- Custom fields for event details in product posts (using woocommerce)

Please advise what I need to do. I tried reading the documentations and user guides, and got overwhelmed.
Thank you in advance.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting our support forum.

What you are trying to achieve will take some time but let me break it down for you with some documentation.

1. How to create a user role for event organisers?
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/custom-woocommerce-roles-admin-capabilities/

2. Creating a user form for the Event Organisers custom role
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/cred-user-forms/

3. Creating a list of Events and Attendees, for events this is possible since you can use our views plugin to do this.

However regarding the attendees you will need to create a separate CPT for attendees and this will complicate things a bit.

What i recommend for here is to use a plugin that manages event registration, for example
hidden link

or

Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks,
Shane

Hi Shane,
Thanks for your reply.

I have bought that Woocommerce Events plugin earlier, but I couldn't get the date and venue fields into my CRED product form.
Also, I couldn't find how to get the price and inventory fields into the form either.

I am looking into WC Vendors (and other marketplace plugins) to manage users. Can we make similar multivendor functionalities using Access and CRED?
I only want users with "Organizer" level to be able to submit event products, then manage the products and orders from front end.

Looking forward to your reply.
Thanks,
Saleh.

Hello,

The problem here is that CRED is not able to populate the woocommerce specific custom fields.

CRED is meant to populate custom fields created using Types through the frontend. So custom fields created using another plugin won't be available to be populated with our CRED form.

So these fields will need to be populated through the backend.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Shane,

I have installed Woocommerce Events plugin, and it has added custom fields to the product to indicate that it is an event product and event details like date and location.

As I build CRED form for the event product, I found shortcodes (under non-types custom fields) for Woocommerce event fileds.

However in the preview, the form doesn't show fields from Woocommerce Events shortcodes. All other fields are shown.
What should I do?

Hello,

As this is is a premium plugin i'm not able to walk through the steps myself to see exactly what the problem is.

Would you mind providing me with admin access to the website so I can have a first hand look at what the problem is ?

I'll enable the private fields for your next response 🙂

Thanks,
Shane

Could you please share the link of the page where you've added CRED form?

Hello,

As mentioned, since our CRED plugin is not tailored to create woocommerce products then these items won't show up to be populated by our CRED plugin.

So CRED is not able to propulate these items. If this is something that you want then you will need a plugin that is specific for creating Woocommerce products through the frontend.

The reason why the fields show up in views is able to display this is because it's able to load the non-types custom fields but CRED isn't

Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks,
Shane

Thanks Shane And Minesh,

Really sorry for not replying sooner.
I will find a workaround using Custom Fields for this matter.

Thanks again.
