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 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 or checkboxes.
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.
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.
