Organizations may want to include a special character in their Kintera Thon event name. When this special character is included it causes the Participant notification emails for creating a team and new team members to display incorrectly.
It's possible that any special character may cause issues in an event when entered in the event name as the event name may appear in other parts of the system like notification emails. It is up to the email provider how they interpret the special character so it may show differently in different email providers. We recommend not using special characters in the event name.
