Reflecting Guests Attendance through Events

Currently users are unable to "Mark as will not attend" or "Mark as Cancelled" as guests to hosts within events. Example would be if John Smith was the main registrant and Jane Smith was his guest, John was able to come to the event but Jane wasn't. The user can mark John's attendance as "Attended" however is unable to mark Jane as "will not attend" or "cancelled". Current workaround for this at the moment just seems to be having to remove the guest registration and re-registering them as an individual registrant and then setting the appropriate status of "will not attend". Can you please investigate the possibility of adding the ability of allowing guests to select all 3 statuses of "Attended, Will not attend and cancelled", furthermore also allowing the guests to have different statuses to their hosts within events. Is their any plan to fix this soon?

    Just thought that the version of this idea in the old system had 93 votes..and this current version only has 15 votes (as of 5/11/16): https://bbecfeedback.uservoice.com/forums/23106-crm-ideas-has-moved-https-community-blackbaud/suggestions/5635131-reflecting-guests-attendance-through-events

    This would be so helpful as often people will cancel their guest tickets but not their own and we'd like to keep track of which guests don't attend or are cancelled last minute as it effects the capacity overall if we just delete them.

    This would be very helpful for us. This is a common scenario our users experience.

    I voted on this in the previous idea bank system, and in this version as well..and put in a comment 3 years ago. My understanding is that you are looking for recent comments to show that people are still interested in an idea...so, yes, I am still interested in this.

    This would be very helpful to us. There are a number of requests to cancel only the guest where as the main registrant still would like to attend. The workaround is extremely manual and for bulk registrations it becomes a painful process to delete and re-add the guest registrant just to mark them as will not attend.
