I am sure this has been at least discussed before, this is just in case it does not exist in the tracking system.

Problem: When Sharing an event and using the Just type name of person that person is not findable by searching at some point in the future therefore I usually add the person to my database, however that option is not part of the sharing process.

My wish is that an option be added under Add a Person to Add a new person to the database.

It would actually be better IMO if the Just type name of person and then This person is NOT in my file then added the person to the file or at least presented a dialogue giving the user that choice.
