Transfer attendees between different events
Our organization has multiple events that have the same content. After registering, some attendees need to transfer to a new date. I'd like to see a simpler way of doing this other than re-registering the attendee manually under the new date and then deleting the old registration.

I would appreciate comments from others so that we can evaluate the priority of this.

This is a feature most definitely needed! All other event management systems have this.
When editing the event registration for a contact, you cannot change the event they are registered for. This can be an issue if you are running a number of the same events (perhaps on a recurring basis) and the registrant cannot make it to one event but can go to another. At present, you would have to delete their registration for the first event and then sign them up for the second one, which is a lot of work and can cause some problems with payments reports and statuses.
1) When editing contact details, make the event name a filed that can be edited. You would then choose the event you want the contact to be registered for. The contact would not be registered for the first event, but would be for the second.
2) Create a "Move to event" button where the contact would be associated with a new event, and the registration form is presented to be completed. If any fields have the same name, the information from the previous registration is copied and can be edited, while different fields remain blank.
3) It could also be set set up so that in an event you can define which other events a registration can be moved to - similar to how you can define which membership levels someone can upgrade to. This might clear up a lot of issues with registration form information.
For all of these, we would have to consider how payment status would be transferred - in addition to much more analysis on registration form information.
