How to register children under their parent's account
« on: April 23, 2020, 10:12:25 AM »
Hello everyone,
I'm just in the process of configuring my AbanteCart e-commerce site and everything is going great.
It is my first experience in installing website extensions and it's been quite an interesting.
Here are the key points I'm working with:
- We run a school bus company that services private schools
- I set up registration at the family level
- Product categories correspond to the major bus routes
- There is a product for each school
- There can be any mix of children to schools in a family

My question is: we need the children's names attached to each product (seat on the bus) that is purchased.
Even if it's more than quantity 1, each seat has to have a name.
Can I extend the parent registration to include sub-registration for all the children, then assign a child to each product using options?

I could write some programming, but I hesitate to do that because of maintenance concerns.
Perhaps there is an extension to the registration process that might help?
Thank you

Interesting project you have :)

Did you see these extensions. One will give you ability to ask details about product during the order and the other is for customer registration

I am not sure if it will cover your requirements 100%, but it might a start.

Hey,
With order attributes, you can provide (N) number of fields (Children names) that will be required to be filled at time of the order.
Will this work?

Thank you both for your suggestions, you have helped me to see things more clearly.
I have moved along by adding option questions about the child during ordering.
I've searched the forums and the documentation, and traced the connections between the elements, but I can't seem to put it all together.
My deadline is fast approaching, and I'm seeking assistance to move past this roadblock.
What I've done:
- In addition to the existing registration process to be able to buy services, I added forms, blocks, layout pages and menu items to register the 2 parents (or guardians) and up to 9 children.
- The child registration form sends out an email with what was entered, which is fine, but not enough.

I would like to modify the success email by adding the client_id, and ideally, the data for the whole family.
My question is: where do I get that data and put it in an email?

Thanks again for your help.
I downloaded and installed the Customer Attributes extension and it does pretty much what I need.
Regards,
