Fields in Registration Forms
Fields in Registration Forms need a "disable" option so we can cut off sign-ups for paper submission (academic conference) three or so weeks before the event, and also cut off sign-ups for meals a few days before the event (because of caterer deadlines). Right now the only way to handle this is to backup the registration data (i.e., put it into "Excel Hell") and then delete the field, thus loosing the data it held. Better yet would be to have a date-specified cutoff such as is available for Registration Types.

I absolutely agree!!
Especially for the FEE BASED items that are part of the conference/trade show.
Example: show is set up as a combination of booths and just tables. When the booths sell out, I must DELETE that registration option, and it totally screws up my exported data.
Please ADD this, instead of delete/restore/etc.
The process only adds to my work load and is very frustrating!
We have specific classes that happen before the main conference, which are additional options on the event registration form. I need the ability to limit the number of registrations for these classes on the registration form or I need to be able to disable the field when the class is full. Right now, I can indicate the class is full, but there is no way to stop someone from registering anyway.

This feature would allow setting a field aside that admins could enter.
For example, we've got an event for which we need to assign each member to a boat (or a table, or a starting time). It would be nice to be able to put that in a field that the registrant couldn't write in.
If the fields could have the same "privacy" options that Contact fields have, that would do the trick - and would also satisfy this request: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/10035207-event-registration-fields-only-for-members
