org-no-helm.el is a better version that works even for capturing in templates.

That was what I was looking for, thank you!

I think I've found a simpler version:
Setting the custom variable helm-completing-read-handlers-alist that tells helm what to use and when.

I placed this in my .emacs and it disabled helm for C-c C-c in an org outline :

(add-to-list 'helm-completing-read-handlers-alist '(org-set-tags))

I don't really know if that is what you looked for, and I hope it helps!

Thanks @sshbio, that was exactly what I needed!

Thanks @sshbio! It is not exactly what I was after - I had helm enabled everywhere (i.e. it replaced completing-read), and this helped me disable it in a single command, rather than enabling it there. I am pretty sure I didn't know about helm-completing-read-handlers-alist though, so thanks for that as well!
