Registrant information displayed: First/Last Name, Email Address, Event ID, Status (Approve/Deny), Event Date/Time, Approve/Deny dropdown menu, and Action Icons: Mark as Attended, Registrant Information, Redact Registrant, Cancel Registration.

Approve/Deny Registrations

Organizers can approve or deny Event registrations individually via the Registrant Management area. 

On the selected Registrant, click on the "Approve/Deny" drop-down menu and select the option you wish. Screenshot: Attendee approve/deny dialog, showing Registrant First Name, Last name, Current Status, Event Date/Time, Event ID, Approve/Deny status, and Approve/Deny dropdown selection menu.

Image Text: Approval/Denial action taken here will over-ride any security set at the event level. Please check the security settings for this event to ensure you are making an appropriate selection.

Note: This action overrides Event security settings for the Registrant. E.g., Your Event has a denylist in place, but you would like to Approve the registration of an individual who meets the denylist criteria. Approving the registration will override the denylist setting for that individual Registrant. 

Registrant Management Functions

To the right of a Registrant's information are icons that allow Organizers to execute specific actions to manage Registrant information and other tasks
