Do not require guest names!

Please create a way in OLX for people who are registering for an event to add  "Guest of" or "Add guests later" - right now I have 10 Jane Doe records b/c Jane bought 10 tickets but didn't have all of her guests confirmed.  This creates a nightmare for record keeping and causes a ton of staff time to be spent on follow-up to registrants to determine their guest names. If we have teh option of selecting "Guest of" we could collect info at teh event or in advance more easily.

    There should be a general option to "do not create a record automatically when anyone registers", not just guests.

    Yes!  And do not require them to fill out all of that information for each guest!  It makes for such messy and confusing forms.

    Can the anonymous button be amended to make the main event attendee complete their details and then add guests only if they have that additional information.

    I completely agree.  At least a button that allows us to turn on or off names.  It requires at least one mandatory field and a lot of our constituents have complained as to how difficult and confusing these forms are. That makes us look really bad. We have a football event where the donations are to sponsor the football team.  If they choose 4 sponsors they have to put names which we do not want to give them a choice of students just to sponsor them.  It's really frustrating to get all these negative emails about our forms.
