The scenario is this: I have an event -- we'll call it "Meeting." There are 200 contacts registered for "Meeting." All 100 have the participant role "attendee." 60 of the contacts who are registered for "meeting" are tagged as "meeting speaker." I would like to batch update so that all 60 contacts with the "meeting speaker" tag have their participant role switched to "speaker" instead of "attendee."
If I do a contact search, I can isolate the tagged participants, but not update their participant roles. It won't let me add them to the event as they are already registered.
On the other hand, if I do a participant search I can batch update registration status, but not search only registrants who have the tag.
Am I missing something or is this just not doable? I'd really rather not manually change all 60 statuses.
