But a few weeks takes us past Christmas. Thank you for listening but surely this could have been put back sooner?
We really need this functionality back. It will cause many errors going forward!

Please, please can we have this treasure of a field back as soon as possible before the lack of event joining information creates chaos. And please can you make the QR code optional so that we do not have to edit it out of every confirmation email. You could make QR a merge in Event Extra Info!

Removing this field (why?) generated so much work for us! We used it to include private details only for registrants (security code, complicated directions, embassy phone #s etc) and UPDATE these details as needed. No we have to manually insert them in 3 emails every single time, which takes so much more time than it should, and our error rate will be a lot higher, as I have a team of volunteers I now have to check.
We too use this field and we duplicate events meaning it is more work now having to edit emails to make sure they have the correct information. The information is NOT information that should be listed on the event page.
This extremely valuable feature has to be restored. I can't imagine that it was causing system trouble or generating complaints. What was the rationale?
This feature allowed us to include information that wasn't/couldn't be included in the public view (directions to private house, contact info that was only for participants, weather cancellation plans, links to private webinars, etc.)
We also run over 150 programs a year, so to manually add this information to 5 +emails is insane! (Pending Confirmation, Reminder 1 2,3)
And we duplicate similar events, so now we have to be vigilant in changing the emails.
Apricot staff, you are making it very hard to support what was once an amazing, responsive product.

Seconded! I would love to retain the additional information box. This is where we put all our meeting point, emergency contact, transportation details etc. They vary for our events (up to 6 a month) and it if very helpful to have all the information together on the same page for my reference.
I have set up the email template to include the additional info and I don't want to have to change every event email individually or access the event info I need over two separate web pages.
