And much more....
1. Ability to have promo codes - When we got this component it didn't have this ability, but we took a couple days and added that function. With our customization of 1.1.1 you can not enter in dollar discounts and percentage discounts. Hopefully the original developer will improve on our code and make it apart of the purchased component.
2. Registration integration - The component does have the ability to integrate this component with Community Builder. However, (maybe I missed it) you cannot integrate the user registration process with event registration. You can hide events from non-registered people being able to see them, but you can't force registration with CB (or Joomla core for that matter) in order to register for an event. We would like for all of our registrants to have a username and password, but unfortunately with this we can't force that.
Note to Developer - Excellent component! We've put in some effort to improve this and I hope you will use it. Please also consider the registration integration if you don't mind. Thanks!
Overall, well worth the little money that it costs!!
Thanks for your nice review and contributing code to my extensiion.
The promotion codes feature and registration integration feature are now available in version 1.2.0 of the extension.
It has a couple very minor issues but the support from the developer is quick and thorough. An example of a minor issue is this: the extension comes with a great calendar view but if you have more then one event on a single day they are not ordered bu start time. As I said very minor but being dealt with.
Thanks again Tuan, keep up the work and you have a permanent customer!
This is the best solution out there for your event registration needs.
I recently had the developer, Tuan, customize the component to add a DEPOSIT functionality. I believe they might be including that in the next upcoming version. This way we can receive a percentage or set amount by paypal, then "at the door" receive the remaining payment. Works perfect for workshop, retreat, class registration.
Like all things, some extensions might have the occasional bug, but you don't have to worry about your concern or issue going unanswered. Tuan has always responded to my questions in the forum with a solution.
So, not only are you getting an excellent product that does what it actually promises, you also will get reliable customer/technical support in any case you need help, additional customization. Ossolution also listens to you. If you have feature requests they actually incorporate the useful ones.
Excellent product. Affordable pricing. Reliable service.
Stop searching for other event booking systems, you've found the right one already.
Thanks Tuan! - Tam :)
