Aaron, we like to have our members sign-up for an event even if they are unavailable.  We also ask them to post a note so we know why and can change events or times accordingly.  The only category right now that works is "canceled".  This sounds like a simple addition so can you please add one more option: "Unavailable"?  It would sure help us and shouldn't interfere with anyone who doesn't wish to use it.

Thanks.

I've got to say "probably not" to this one, since I have to think site-wide.  While your members may be very diligent about utilizing a feature like that, I think many guilds would have a small percentage of people signing up as unavailable, with the rest just not signing up at all.  The question would then be, what are the people who didn't sign up at all?

There's always a percentage of people who don't sign up and, sadly, we don't learn anything from them.  Thise who take the time to sign up as unavailable, however, provide valuable data.  By signing up, it tells us they were interested but couldn't make it because _____.  That info lets us know if we need to run different events or change the time to catch people.

I've seen this in other guilds I've been in but they weren't on GuildPortal.  Our only option here is to sign up as "canceled" which isn't accurate.  In addition, what will this hurt?  Those who don't want to use it will simply have one more option on their drop down when they sign up for an event.  Is having one more row going to make it more difficult to sign up?
