Event Reminder sending to selected registrants
Enable Event Reminder to be sent to selected registrants only.
Currently, event Reminders are sent automatically to all registrants (we send them out 2 days before an event). But if a member registers for an event after the Reminder has been sent, there is no way to send the Reminder to them - the Reminder can only be resent to all registrants. We use Reminders to provide final details such as meeting place, what to be bring etc. which is important also for those registering just the day before an event.
This could work in a similar way to the "Send notification" function is used to send the Confirmation email to manually added registrants.

I can send an e-mail to ALL registrants for an event. But I cannot send e-mail to a subset of those registrants. For example, I would like to send e-mail to all non-member registrants inviting them to become members. Of course, I would not want that e-mail to be sent to members.
It's been a while but to follow up on Evgeny's question. We use the event reminders to send the Zoom link out for events one or two days before the event is due. We don't want to include that information in the event registration email as it may be 6 months ahead. people will inevitably misplace the email, so we say hold the date and an email will be sent with the link the day before the event. This works very well until we get a late registration and the reminder email has already gone out. Yes we can create a manual email but that involves bespoke emails for every occasion this happens. When you click to 'send again' it asks 'Send reminder to all registrants?' a rather pointless question as there is no other choice. Can there not be an option to say 'Select all' or 'Select Individuals' ?

Please also add the same options as for registration confirmations, e.g. whether to send reminders to guests.

Same goes for Event Announcements: "Selected Contacts" should include the same Search for individuals option as in ordinary emails.

My assumption is that you also supply all these information in "Event registration confirmed". So, if you send the reminder 2 days before and a person registers after this, it means basically 1-2 days before the even - what is the purpose for having a reminder email, while "Event registration confirmed" is the reminder on its own?
