Custom fields on registration forms
Aside from the basic information collected on all registration forms by default, namely the name and email address of the attendee, you can also collect custom data as your needs dictate. For example, you may have parents who need to register their children, where the attendee will be the child, but you also need the parent's information. Likewise, you may need to collect much more detailed information about any attendee, such as their address, date of birth, experience level with the subject matter, injuries that may impact the event, etc. You can also use custom form fields for including terms, policies, and waivers on registration forms.
You can create custom fields on registration in two ways:
- Account-wide, which will apply to each event you create.
- Event-specific, which will offer custom settings and options for a specific event.
Account-Wide Custom Fields
- Go to your account Settings, select Configurations, and then Custom Fields from the left side.
- Define the custom fields you would like included on registration forms for your attendees to fill out. These will be applied globally to your entire account. You can make these required or optional, and include help text below the field to help the registrant understand what information is specifically required or why.
- Add as many new custom fields as you need.
- Be sure to Save custom fields when you have finished with this section.
Event-Specific Custom Fields
- Go to Step 4 — Custom Form Fields, when you are creating or editing an event that you need to have custom fields.
- Check the box "Include additional custom form fields on the registration form" to enable custom fields on this event.
- Select if you would like to "Use the globally configured account custom form fields" (see above) or "Use a customized list of form fields specific for this event".
- If you choose a custom list, configure the custom fields that you would like to have included on the registration form. You have several types of form fields to choose from. Give each field a label or question for your attendee to fill out, and you can even include some help text to let them know what is required or why.
- Be sure to Save & Exit when you have finished with this step.
Note: Conditional fields are not currently supported on Corsizio. This means that you cannot configure a field to be dependent on another field.
