Provide way to verify an event registrant is human

For the past couple or event registrations we've had spam bots sign up and take valuable registrant spots.
When contacting customer service there was no constructive help on how to avoid this, expect to put a captcha on our site for when people click a button to LEAVE our site. This user experience is a terrible idea and would deter registrants.

 

With that suggestion from a service rep. it seems like Constant Contact should have the option to add the captcha to registration forms. or have a spam filter. I'd like to suggest that or if other people have solved this more elegantly.

Hi @wictphilly what kind of verification would like to see to verify registrants?

I am also experiencing an increase in spam registrations for events. it would be great to have a CAPTCHA option on the registration forms to prevent this. 

 

TIA

We are working on an updated event experience in a more advanced tool. While we do not have an update or timeline to share or can guarantee any kind of commitment on how we will be handling event registrations, we hope this indicates some awareness that we have heard your feedback and could be taken under consideration while we are building out this tool.
