New as of 09/20/2022: Manage settings for custom registration fields by selecting the category the field will be used for.
Custom registration fields, which ask attendees to provide additional information including their job titles or how they heard about your event while registering for your event, give hosts additional audience insight that can be leveraged for marketing and follow-up.
To create custom registration fields, log into the series associated with your event and select the Manage Series tab, then select Custom Registration Fields from the left-hand menu.
The Custom Registration Fields page displays all of the registration fields currently listed on your virtual event registration form, their format and whether that field is required.
Customize the Registration Form's title, subtitle and ticket price subtitle. You can make the text custom to your event or consistent to your company's branding and messaging. "Reserve Your Spot" is the default title, and if there is no pricing it will show as Price: FREE, which does not show on the registration form.
An example of a customized registration form title, subtitle, and ticket price title:
Besides email addresses, all of these fields can be edited. To edit an existing field, click Edit in that entry's row, then customize that field in the pop-up that appears.
To add a new field, click Add Field. In the pop-up that appears, enter the field name (i.e., the information you would like to obtain from your audience), then select its format.
Under Field Description, enter in a description for the custom registration field. For example, if you have a custom registration field with a title of "Job", you can provide a description or clarification such as "Please include your title and department." Below is an example of this:
Under Response Type, choose your custom registration field's format. These can appear as free-entry text fields (guests can enter one line of text), text area fields (guests can enter more than one line of text), dropdown lists, radio boxes, single or multiple checkboxes or labels (these serve as text-only registration fields without the ability to enter in an entry.)
For Lists (Dropdown, radio, checkboxes) you are able to select custom lists and create your own or utilize a location dropdown. For custom lists, select if you would like to have a single or multiple selection and have the list in either a dropdown format or with radio/checkbox buttons. You can click the page icon located on the right to add descriptions under each check box.
Under Default Value, enter a value that will be added to the attendee's registration data if they do not submit an answer to this field. You can click the downward arrow on the categories to select additional settings for each field. These are labeled based on what the field is being used for.
If you choose the dropdown format, enter each of your desired dropdown menu options under Response Options.
To upload a CSV file of all possible response options (example: different cities, states or job functions), click the teal Upload Response Options button, then upload a CSV file containing all of your desired response options.
To make this field required for registration, tick the respective checkbox from the options above. You can save this field as a default for your future BigMarker events by checking Save as a Default Field.
