    Hello adt,
    I hope you're doing good and thanks for reaching us!

    I am not sure I understand correctly: you'd like to have the possibility for one member to join ONE membership, but have multiple roles based on their PREVIOUS membership and you'd like that only for FREE memberships? Please advise!

    You can activate the Member Capabilities add-on from Membership 2 -> Add-ons, instead of using a third-party plugin if you'd like. Now you will see another tab in Membership 2 -> Protection Rules -> User Roles. Here you can assign each user role (except administrator for security reasons) to one or multiple memberships.

    Would you like the user to have two memberships for example? If that's so the Multiple Memberships add-on can be activated from the Membership 2 -> Add-ons section. When you have that add-on enabled you can assign multiple memberships to your users, and users are able to subscribe to multiple memberships at the same time

    Looking forward to hearing back from you!

    Hello adt,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    I am sorry but I don't think it is possible at the moment. Since Membership 2 Pro uses default WordPress user role and privileges system that does not allow having multiple user roles at once.

    This system works according to levels from 1 to 10. In this system, user with level 5 can do every thing a user with level, 1, 2, 3 and 4 including its own specific permissions. Same goes to Level 10 that can do every thing.

    So using the roles for multiple memberships is not a way to go here. Instead, I would suggest you use capabilities for this purpose to allow access on multiple areas of Dashboard depending on their multiple membership level.

    To assign capabilities, make sure you enable Advanced Capability protection option from Membership 2 -> Add-ons -> Member Capabilities.

    This will replace User Roles tab with Capabilities in Membership 2 -> Protection Rules.

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:
