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, navigate to your series dashboard, 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. Besides email address, 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. On the form, prompts 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 and checkboxes.
If you choose the dropdown format, enter the dropdown menu options in the prompt that appears.
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."
If you're sending your participants' registration data to your CRM through an integration, or using an API, check the last two boxes as well to ensure this registration field's data makes it to your CRM.
