Detailed descriptions of each plugin extension:

FooEvents Custom Attendee Fields

The main FooEvents plugin makes it possible to ask for each attendee’s First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Telephone Number, Company and Designation only. If you want to set up your own custom questions then you can use the FooEvents Custom Attendee Fields extension e.g. if you want to ask for allergies, give a choice of meals or t-shirt sizes, let them pick a date etc. It is now also possible to create questions in the form of a text input field, paragraph text, select dropdown list, checkbox, radio buttons, date picker etc. This information will also appear on the ticket that the attendee receives via email.

FooEvents PDF Tickets

Adds the ability to let the attendees receive their tickets as PDF attachments instead of/in addition to the default HTML ticket email. PDF files are portable and makes it easier to print the ticket. If you use this plugin then your customers will also be able to download their PDF tickets from their account on your site.

FooEvents Multi-day

Adds the ability to set your event’s date to be multiple days, either consecutive days or specific non-consecutive dates. If you are using the mobile check-ins apps this will be useful to be able to check attendees in on the correct dates if the event spans over more than one day.

FooEvents Calendar

Adds the ability to display your events in a calendar format or in a list view. Here is an example: http://demo.fooevents.com/calendar/

FooEvents Express Check-in

Adds the ability to use a physical bar code scanner and a computer to scan attendees in. This is useful if you can’t use the mobile check-in apps.

FooEvents Seating

Lets your customers choose specific seats on a visual seating chart. You can create your own seating chart by choosing row/area names and you can also specify the number of seats that should appear in each row/area. It is also possible to associate certain rows/areas with certain event variations and make it required or not to select a seat.
