Multi-member/group checkout - We are using a Custom Field to collect a donation as a custom fee. The system's Invoice generator calls the entire amount collected the event fee and donations do not count as a qualified medical expense. Is there an easy way for the Custom Fee, if any, to be reported as a separate line item on the invoice?
I realize the normal use case is that custom fee was designed for modifiers to an event registration price and there is no way to know whether a fee should be a price modifier or a separate line item for an independent charge like a donation. The good news is that in our setup, there are no price modifiers. And the custom fee is set to not be discountable in case that flag helps somehow. Ideas?
I knew that, I was just exploring if it was possible to break out the summary billing one level using the custom fee.
(Also, The invoice also doesn't show the number of admissions/tickets.)
So I'm exploring working backwards as follows:
$amount = total of registrations and fees before discounts and taxes as currently shown
$fee = [custom_fees]
$members = number of members in group.
$tickets = $amount - $fee
To make this work, just need access to the total custom fee [custom_fees], or the Additional Donation custom field [custom_field_12] if the value was saved to the database. I understand it prevents using custom fee for any other purpose in my instance of events booking - I just want a way to recognize that there was a donation added so we can thank the donor appropriately. Is it practical to expose [custom_fees] as one more mergefield? (I'm at the edge of my Joomla PHP skills.)
