Script to record/updated RSVPs

P: n/a
Good afternoon,


Good afternoon,

I am looking to find / create a script which will allow visitors a
website RSVP for events. Users will have a unique ID that they receive
in the mail. I would like for them to be presented with a form to
enter this unique ID, and then search the database for events that the
user has been invited to.

There will be a fixed number of events, but the user should only see
events that they are invited to, likely the tombstone data will be in
one table, and the events in a second.

The next page would display tombstone info, which can be updated, and
provide an opportunity for the user to RSVP for each event that they
have been invited to. For example:
Welcome Mr. Smith

RSVP Status:

Meeting XYZ __ will attend __ will not attend
Dinner __ Will attend __ will not attend
e-mail address: ___________
Name of Hotel: ____________

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to accomplish this??

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Check first, if they are open source apps available.

Depending on the generalization level I want to achieve, I would maybe start
with creating 3 database tables:

- events
- persons
- invitations (or events_persons, if you wish. it could imho handle both
invitations and replies to them)

But it really depends, how flexible system needs to be done. If there is
one invitator, there is no need for admins-table. If events are fixed, they
can be upated with phpmyadmin well enough. Also, are there two hierarchy
levels events like 1)different kinds of conferences that has 2) different
kinds of dinners.

I would also carefully think, could invited couples be handled in database
as one entry/couple. Since making those connections could be timetaking. But
this depends also, can those invitees split to separate dinners. For
example, some conferences have other events for men and other for women. And
then also, who of the two is "default" invitee, like one's son is default
guest for christmas table, but his new girlfriend is not supposed to come
ALONE, only with the son.

INVITEES
inv_id
inv_line (like Mrs & Mr Jones)
inv_min_seats
inv_max_seats

EVENTS
ev_id
ev_name
ev_date
ev_starttime
ev_endtime
ev_description

INVITEES_EVENTS
ev_id
inv_id
persons_coming
table_id
hotel_name
note_from_invitee

Making this a complete app would take some time.

be wrong or right or in-between. I don't hold myself responsible of any
consequences that occur from using these ideas.

This table structure is actually quite like what I had designed. Now I
just have to get the PHP end figured out.

I am playing with MyDBO today, and it looks promising. What I have
never done before (with my basic php knowledge) is populate a form on a
webpage with multiple records that the user can then edit.
