        Why can't you allow duplicating items in the "Registration Types" so we don't have to cut and paste every item. It will greatly help save time and effort.

        Yes, this can be very helpful in the case that the event requires multiple registration types.

        It won't help our club. But since I always support part of a solution now instead of waiting for the perfect solution later, I have to applaud. :)

        I am curious to know, from the people asking for this feature, whether starting with a copy of an existing event will solve their problem, or are there reasons why that does not work for them.

        Katya, will this allow a registration type from one event to be copied into another event?

        Or just to create an additional registration type in the same event?

        I still think the way to create a new event is to duplicate an existing one, including its registration types. There are so many event options and it is so fiddly to get them all right, you might as well start with something you know works.

        We would use exactly 2 types for 100s of events per year. Recreating the event type is busy work and prone to error.

        We have made several "template" events, including registration types. Then we just duplicate one of them and start with that to create a new event.

        There are too many event options to start from scratch each time. Even if registration types could be reused - and they should be - we would still use the template system

        We mostly use 2 registration types. Recreating them each time is inefficient. Reusable stored registration types would be great.

        We offer 75 events (courses) per year. Creating a registration type for each one, each with the same name, is time-consuming and error-prone.

        Agree completely, we basically use the same registration for every event.

        I also think this is a no brainer. Events already reference a Registration Type ID that it looks up so we not be able to lookup from shared types ? We use the same registration type for all events

        Hello Adam, we do not have any immediate plans for this as yet.
        This sounds like a feature request so I will transfer this post to our Wishlist forum.

        I've mentioned this before, and was given a workable but unsatisfactory answer. I would like to have a pool of used registration types, obviously with the Availability Period wiped, to choose from. Any chance of this?
