Issues with Beta

I just found out on Saturday, after many hours Friday night of trying to figure things out and not succeeding, that a Host who has booked a future show cannot be entered as a "guest" and order the "future party pick" or anything else for that matter, as a guest order - like we could do in P3. I had a Past Host who did a catalog show for HWC items and finally HO told me that it all had to be entered on her current Host order. That meant that her "future party pick" did not count towards the sales total, which totally messed up things in our figuring out her FPV. HO said it would count after all the other "perks" were awarded, but it didn't happen. Has anyone else experienced that scenario and worked around it?

The only way to work around that would be to use a different email address.

I tried that but then it wouldn't let me enter her Past Host number in the guest order screen in order to be able to order the product. She also wanted a pink cutting bd and mix n chop for 10% off. HO said the "future party pick" is generated by the email that was used for her original show order and because I used it on her Host page, I got an error saying it was already used. There was a place in her host order screen to choose the "future party pick" - go figure!!! But that 1/2 price total did not add to her show total, as it would with another guest that was a past host. VERY FRUSTRATING and CONFUSING!

I forgot about that. Yes, it's terribly frustrating. How about this? Pull up the host in My Contacts. Change her email to [email protected]. Save it. Now add her as a guest. I think that would work. Just be sure to change her back after submitting the show.

I think this is something we need to contact the HO about.
