Ability for the admin to set/ change “not attending” invitees event status.
Please add the ability for the admin to set/change the attendees event status to "not attending".
Thank you for providing details about "not attending" status usage. Proposal sounds perfectly reasonable even if there are not many votes for it now.
I can't promise anything at the moment but we will consider to implement this functionality in the nearest releases.
Regarding adding guests - you can do it manually as admin. Please have a look at help page:

Administrators should also have the ability to add additional guests manually when they receive the invitees reply by email, phone, WhatsApp or Text message.
Essentially, Administrators should replicate manually the online event registration process.
Many invitees call by phone or send a message to confirm or decline an invitation.
Allowing administrator to add manually registrants but NOT having the ability to set/change the attendees event status to "not attending" defeats the purpose of the enhancement Wild Apricot introduced to manage and keep track of an event attendance in one dashboard.
This missing functionality need to be added in the next release in order to use the introduced event enhancement especially to follow up and resend the event invitation/ reminder to the invitees who "didn't reply" excluding the ones "not attending" (when the notice is received by phone, WhatsApp, text message or email)
