Custom Fields are input fields, of various types viz. file upload, simple text box, dropdown fields, radio buttons, date field, country field and more, that is used on Attendee Registration Form, Review Submission Form, and Abstract Submission Form. Using Form Builder, Admin can add as many custom fields as he/she wants, in the forms.
Go to Form Builder. Click on Add New Field
or Edit existing one. Select Include In Form and Usertype (i.e where you want to show this
custom field and for what usertype) -> Make it active to display the field in the form
-> Dont forget to Save.
Custom fields makes forms more flexible. With the help of custom fields event admin can build and arrange form according to his/her requirement and type of information event admin wants from users.
Default fields are editable and can be unpublished to hide from users. But you can not delete them.
You can order the fields the way you like. You can make the country
field come before the Address field but adjusting the Order. To adjust
the order of a form, go to Form builder, set your ordering and then
click on Save. Let me know if you need help with this.
Access levels allow you to display fields in a form to selected usertypes.
Access Level – Admin only
So, for example, you create a field named Remarks to let administrators add remarks about a certain attendee.
Of course, you would want to keep it private and only show it to other admins with access to the backend platform. So you would edit the field and select Admin only under Access level. That will make sure only Admin level users have access to this field.
Access Level – Logged-in users + Admin
To display a field only to users who’re logged-in to the website and the admin users in the backend platform, select ‘Logged-in User + Admin’ in the Access control for the field you’re editing.
Access Level – Public
Set access level to Public to display the fields to users who are not logged in on the website i.e. unregistered, guest users who’re visiting your website. That can be used to display public profile and to display fields which need to be filled for registration.
