Hello, I have noticed Sergey's comment about custom fields in Emerald 10.

I am working on Emerald 10 right now very close to release. This version supports custom fields you can attach to plan purchase.

Question

Apart from the custom fields content for additional infos, do they have other features?

Idea

What about adding "Optional Items" to a plan, which might have an additional item price. This price might affect the total amount. Usually increasing it, but decreasing would also make sense. "Optional Items" and their price could be listed on the "receipt/bill" separately. etc.


If custom fields are not suitable for such advanced features, I could imagine to utilize Cross Plans for a similar usage ;)

+1 for this idea. Thus admins can ask for extra services to the customers with extra payment.

Done. This custom field is called UPSELL. Ity allos you to sell extra things like for example +$10 for priority support of +$10 for mailing product on CD/DVD, etc..

Great. Does this feature only work during subscription? Or can customers purchase them after they completed the membership (or whenever they want)?

Right now it only works during subscription.

Is it usable for this scenario:

Create different prices for 1 Subscription plan. For instance let users select their personal "status" to reduce the membership price i.e. for students, apprentice, jobless people.

This might also require an upload/attachment of an evidence or official paper. i.e. scan or photo as pdf, jpg

You can use upsell field for that. Upsell can affect price as up as down. Something like select status and then affect base price.

pepperstreet This might also require an upload/attachment of an evidence or official paper. i.e. scan or photo as pdf, jpg

Then user will not be able to process to purchase because manual process require manual billing and manual approval. Emerald will create subscription automaticaly. And if not, then you do not need to do it through Emerald at all. You can use Cobalt as subscription request mechanism and create subscriptions to approved requests manually.

Subscription should work like normal. In real world, you often have to accept registrations/subscriptions...
but the approval/check is done later on. If there is any fraud attempt, a user will be blocked later.

Just wanted to know, if we have an attachment field at all. What field types and validation do we get?

Fields are plugins just like in Cobalt. We can create any field. But by default there will be only 3 fields. Note, Upsell, Crosssell

New Emerald 10 beta tester here...

Having custom fields turned out to be an absolute requirement for my client's site - we need to capture additional information alongside a donation hence installing and starting to use E10

I've installed E10 and note the following:-

  1. The field types Note and Upsell allow two kinds of input Note - Text and Upsell - Checkbox (with controls for adding value based options, and restrictions can be defined to hide/show the field based on category and plan.

However, I note that there are few omissions which I think will be really important:-

1. There is no apparent way to make a field mandatory field (i.e. at the very least non-blank)
2. The HTML field type used is "textarea" and the number of rows is set to 5. This results in a bulky looking page. It would be really useful to be able to specify the HTML field type as either "input" or "textarea" and have the number of rows as a parameter.
3. No Free text field type - this would enable commentary within the form.
4, Conditional field display dependent on the value of another field would great, but I understand we're getting into the realms of a fully fledged form handling system!

That might be a good option

Hard to satisfy everyone. Use CSS to adjust your field.

Yes we do. It is little too much. Even Cobalt (which is actualy form generator) do not have this feature.

In general thank you for input. I'll see what I can implement.
