Allow manual entry of attendee information
I'd like to be able to go into the backend and manually add an attendee to the list.
We really need this feature. We frequently need to issue a free ticket to an event. It would be nice to at least have some kind of workaround.
As a user, I want to be able to add tickets to an event manually. E.g. sending a free ticket (guest list or else) to an attendee, that I don't want to be displayed in the frontend, but which I need to have on the attendee-list.
One of the most common forms of support requests we get is to change an attendee name, especially if it's a large order. If we can change the attendee information in the back end, that would save a lot of time in keeping track of name changes when we print the badges.
Because an admin can't update/edit attendee info - it means this info can't be relied on and we need to implement an ancillary system adding overheads. The larger the events, the larger the overhead. It would be amazing to have this functionality asap.

As a workaround I have added the free User Switching plugin - https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-switching
And then can login as the customer that booked the tickets edit attendee info from the event booking page.
The tribe edit workaround didnt quite do the job and thoufgh this is not ideal but at least works until an admin edit is introduced.
Yes. +1 for this, defo
Can we have an update on this feature please.
If we can't manage the attendees details then it forces us to use an alternative method of keeping track of our attendees (in our case google sheets) and therefore rules out the use of events calendar to do checkins via QR codes or email outs etc.
In our event calendar people buy tickets for single events. We also have people that buy monthly subscriptions from us. They pay through woocommerce noe.
What would help us a lot is:
1. To buy the subscription from the events calendar
2. VERY IMPORTANT.
What happens now is like that:
We have an event with 10 places availablr. There are people that buy individual tickets from tge calendar and people that make monthy subscriptions paying cash at our studio. These people need to call us and reserve one place at a workshop. We make the reservation by phone, then we go to the event in the event calendar, we modify the number of tickets substracting 1 and thats what we do every time.. it is a hassle....
We need a solution for the people who but the subscription. For exemple to have a code to pit in and reserve the place online, and that one place to be substracted automatically from the number of places available..
Please.. I really need a solution!
Has anyone been able to find a workaround for this? Unfortunately it makes it impossible to run any events that have multiple marketing sources until this is possible.
Even if we had to add attendee's via a table in the database.
Really really really need this please!
This should be on your short-term roadmap. I need to be able to add people manually for accurate head counts an updates
Like others, I thought that as site admin I'd be able to manually add attendees to an event. We really need this functionality as not everyone purchases tickets online. Any chance of adding it soon?
Love this, could really use this. Management keeps asking for us to add them as attendees and we have people who mail us checks (yes, people still do that - weird, hey?) expecting to be handled as a regular attendee at the event.
We have an issue where a companies PA has booked all of the tickets for a particular event, however they have now notified us of the inidividuals attending however we cannot edit them ourselves.
As site admins to have this capability would be a big help.
I just created 75 events over the last month. with 50 to 500 + people coming to each one. I just found out i cant add attendees manually or edit attendees. As some people put the wrong names in etc. they have asked me to via email to edit it . after talking to support it turns out you cant. i tryed to explain on the phone on how to change the names to 3 users. ever experience on this was horrible. some people are not good at finding their login/resetting their password. etc. they were can u please just change it for me ,. i cant access my account.
This is going to cause a huge problem with incorrect names. etc. Can you please give Admin access to edit names, and resend tickets. I was unaware that i was unable to do that at time of purchase. PLEASE, can you add this feature in the next update?
I too am a site admin who needs the functionality to amend metadata associated with tickets. Often, purchaser's do not know the names and dietary requirements of the people who will ultimately be attending our events - I would like the ability to add those details in from the back-end once they are known.
Please do this - very much so needed. Or at least tell us where in the SQL database we can edit it ourself?
