    I agree with many of the sentiments of my peers, this is the single most frustrating thing about OLX is that we have around 20 events homecoming weekend on multiple days and people want to register for multiple events without having to fill out a form multiple times.

    This is a big source of frustration with OLX. We must use other software when we want to have multiple items on one event registration form (OneCause most recently). Very frustrating to pay for two products when one should be able to manage this.

    Yes please! This would be so so helpful for weekend events (some free and some paid) where constituents can bring a guest. We have to use Eventbrite instead, not great for our user journey.

    This continues to be really frustrating that you cannot do this.  We also have reunions with multiple events and your only options are to make a complete mess of the participant type area (which also makes reports and exports a mess) or to have multiple pages for the person registering, which is a pain on their end.

    We are resorting to using a google form instead.

    We'd like this very much. We sell many package tickets to our events and this would allow us to finally use this great OLX tool!

    Bump. This should be a priority.

    This is vital for our Homecoming weekend which has over 30 events in one weekend! We have had to use other programs because of the inability to do this! This would improve our user experience greatly!

    This is a feature that is absolutely necessary here at Rider University!

    I am new to this conversation but I saw there are some comments related to this that are still fairly recent. The event module is still relatively new to our organization but there is an option to make "Grouped" Events. the training that I received they mentioned that this is something that more organizations such as Universities would use for events like Homecoming, Alumni Gatherings, etc. where there are many smaller events that combine in the grand scheme. While this is not something our organization does, the training made it seem like you could register one time for multiple things. Has anyone had a chance to try that? I may have something coming up in 2019 that would require us to use that feature and was curious if any on here have tried this to help with their problems.

    This would be a great help. It would also help if the main event could be made "primary", so that when taking a quick look to see who's registered in "Events", you don't get people's room bookings as well as their dinner bookings for example..

    Yes please! Our alumni reunion has several events for registration, and most registrations occur online. This is a huge problem as we have to use a 3rd party event form to process information and payments.

    We have a reunion weekend with many events some paid and some free. We had the ability to do this in Net Community. But with OLX it is not an option. Please help!!!

    This is really important, even for simple two-part events like Lecture and Dinner. After using online express for about 4 months, we get more and more frustrated with this lack of function and tempted to go back to eventbrite...

    Our organization is planning a series of talk-backs happening this spring. The series is free and people can come to one, two, three, or all of the talks, and attendants don't have to attend each in succession. It would be wonderful if they could select the evenings they would like to go on a single event registration form instead of having to got to multiple. Not sure why this hasn't been developed yet, especially with competitors like event brite. It's just sad because the information cant be tracked if a different system isn't used, and then it will have to be manually entered in at a later date.

    It amazes me that the ability to do this has not been built into the application at this point.  It's been a year that we have been using one work-around or another.  Please put this on the urgent to-do list!

    agree! it would be SO MUCH EASIER to put together our reunion registration if you could do one registration for all grouped events!

    This function is important. At least let us keep NetCommunity (without additional fees) until there is an update to OLX.

    This must be an option. This product is much better than NetCommunity but we have to have this functionality!

    I honestly can't believe this isn't supported. For now, we're using a third party to book multiple events, which means BBMS is losing money with every transaction.

    Seconded. Losing this functionality -- after being expressly told we would not lose functionality in the transition from NetCommunity to Online Express -- has been devastating and a huge setback. Please fix ASAP.
