registering attendees who don't have email

Hi. It would really be helpful if there was a way to register someone who does not have an email address. I realize I could use a temporary email address for them, but this seems like a lot of work when there will be multiple individuals who will be attending our event. Thanks.

I run events for a PA public school's alumni association, which includes all ages from new grads to older graduates in their 80s. Some of our older alumni are not computer literate, and register via mail-in forms or phone, and they certainly do not use email. 

 

Yet there seems to be no way to add a registrant without an email. A database which only is email based is severely limiting, and forces one to maintain an excel sheet as well as CRM. 

 

I've found posts dating back ten years with issues about this subject, and yet it seems nothing is being done. We are currently searching for a new CRM specifically because of this issue. You should not need to maintain a separate list if you are paying for a database.

I do not need email addresses for an internal event but it is forced to be a required field.

Hey @EllenR2, thanks for the feedback! Currently, email addresses are required in order for a registrant to register for an event. By registering with an email address, it allows users to communicate with those registrants and ensures that duplicate registrations don't occur. Since we don't have the option to not require an email address for registrants, I'll open this idea up for voting.
