Provide easy way to transfer a registered contact to the waitlist

The new waitlist facility is a welcome addition, however it does not fully cater for the way we operate.

We ask as many contacts as possible to register for events. Selection to participate is at the discretion of the event organiser and not on a first-come, first-served basis. To activate the waitlist, we limit the number of registrations after they have been received and then move those not selected to the waitlist

The only option for Admins to add waitllist registrations is to create a new entry. If an Admin wishes to move to the waitlist someone who has already been registered, all the registration data previously provided has to be re-entered. It should be possible to transfer a registered contact to the waitlist

    I sent the following email and was told to send idea here to see if it could be added:

    I know I can register waitlisted folks one at a time as that is what I did. I was wondering when I need to do this in the future, is there a way to register all on the list at one time? I had many to move from waitlist to registered and this took a lot of time. Thank you.

    There should be an easy tech solution to this issue. Having to rekey and move a large number of registered guests to waitlist is archaic!
