Events Manager
Allow admin to create bookings on behalf of users (5 posts)

    I'm using Events Manager 5.1.7 and allow the creation of events with bookings. Registered users can login and make bookings and this works fine. However, I'm trying to figure out if the admin user can create a booking on behalf of a user. I'd want the result of the admin created booking to be the same as if the user had actually made the booking.

    Thanks.

    Hi jlac,

    I had the same question and it appears you can do it with the pro version only, I just found the following paste under the Pro Version "manual booking" feature. I don't work for Events Manager, so there may be another way. I'm watching your post also. Good luck!
    =======================================
    Adding Manual Bookings
    Bookings can also be added manually. You can add a booking any event bookings managment page.
    There should be an “Add Booking” button next to the page title:

    Adding a booking is much like the user logging in and making the booking themselves. The two differences are that you must select the user to apply this booking to (and if a user doesn’t exist, you must create one beforehand using the wordpress Users > Add New tool) and also decide whether this user has fully paid this event.
    If a user has fully paid an event, then a corresponding offline transaction record will also be created and the booking will be marked as paid and confirmed, along with sending a user a confirmation email, opposed to a pending mail if the booking is not paid, and it will be marked as awaiting payment.

    yup, pro offers manual bookings this way, integrating with the other feature like custom forms, coupons, payments, etc.

    One thing you can do is try using a plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-switching/ and register in place of the user you want. For guest registrations, just visit with another browser or e.g. google incognito and register the info as if you were the booker.

    Thanks for the idea of the user switch Marcus. I'll give that a try.

    I have also been mulling getting the EM pro version but we already use s2Member Pro for billing features etc. and I was wary of the need to integrate two systems (I believe you are looking into this already). I will check into this with the site owner to see what they want to do. They may find the user-switch option too complex or onerous.

    Regards,

    John

    quite a few users are already using s2 on Pro and Free without issues. Since we use capabilities, you can limit users depending on their role, which S2 also uses to distinguish members I believe.

    I'm likely planning on migrate my terrible membership plugin to s2, so chances are that'll be the 'official' EM membership plugin for integration.
