    Hi all,
    Was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. We are a junior sporting club and we need to automate our player registration process. We have different age group competitions for both boys and girls teams and need to automate the registration process so when they enter thier childs date of birth and sex, it automatically prefills the competition they will be registered into. There are other standard fields such as Names, Address etc etc which are easy to set up, but the automation to pop them into the correct competition once the have entered the DoB and sex has us stumped?

    We are running the full suite of Woocommerce plugins including the composite products plugin and hope we can use that to make the process simple for the end user and make sure that the players are registered into the correct competitions.

    We have over 600 kids in the club so each year its a mad manual process to collate them all and pop them into the correct age groups and competitions. Any help and guideance would be much appreciated.

    A great deal depends on where exactly the registration page is taking place. If it’s on the checkout page of WooCommerce, then it would require a fair amount of custom coding as the regular addons like https://www.woocommerce.com/products/woocommerce-checkout-add-ons/ wouldn’t be of much help here.

    If, however, you’re using a registration method outside of WooCommerce then you could look into using a form builder plugin like http://gravityforms.com/ – it has a bunch of conditional options where fields can be populated on an if-then-else basis…

    Thanks RK,
    Yes the registration page is at the point of checkout, as they pay registration fees which are determined by which competition they are registering for, which is qualified by thier age and sex. The age cut off date for our competitions is 30th of June…

    So to give you an example:
    e.g. A boy born on the 30th of September 2005 will be 12 when they register him for next seasons comptitions. So he qualifies for competition #u13’s and the fees for the season are $XX. The fee structures and competitions are different for multiple age groups and sexes, so we would like the form to auto complete the comp and fees they are qualified for once they enter their DoB and sex…hope that makes sense ?

    Sounds like a pretty complex setup 🙂

    Using just WooCommerce will mean a lot of custom coding that’s needed. Having read the example, I reckon Gravity Forms (mentioned previously) alongside https://www.woocommerce.com/products/gravity-forms-add-ons/ should work.

    This will allow to you to essentially place a form on the single product page where users fill in their details. Once filled in, the product totals will be calculated by the form and passed to the cart/checkout page. As such, the calculations and player details will be captured by Gravity Forms, and the actual account creation and payment processing will be done by WooCommerce.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks RK, very much appreciated and will check out Gravity Forms now….
