Registration Form

You can collect important data from the attendees enrolled in the event through the Registration form.

The standard registration form included in the platform requires name, e-mail address, username, password, role and company information.

Other questions can be added by the event's admin in addition to these. It is also possible to edit the default questions' labels or remove them from the form.

How do I enable or disable the registration form?

First of all, you should check if this functionality is enabled in the company level.

To enable the registration form tool, click on Settings > Tools > Edit > scroll down until you see the Registration section > enable registration form > press End to save the changes.

How can I create a registration form?

To create a registration form, click on Marketing > Registration > Registration form

Default questions

There are some default questions in the form, which are:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Username
  • Email address
  • Password
  • Role
  • Company

How can I change the default question's labels?

To change the default texts, while on Marketing > Registration > Registration form, click on the Edit button in the top right corner, click on the question you want to change, input the new content in that field and press the End button in the top right corner when you finish editing.

To remove the Password, Role, and Company questions click on the Edit button, then click on the question and click on the red Remove button.

If you wish to restore the original default question headings, click on the Edit error/ success messages button and then on the Edit button at the top right corner of the page. Select the item you want to restore to original settings by checking its box and click Remove. Save these changes by clicking on the End button.

When deleting either the Role or Company questions you'll automatically enable the Profile lock feature, which prevents the user from changing their profile information after the Registration form is sent. To allow editing of profile information, and thus re-enabling Role and Company questions, go to Settings > Tools on event level and uncheck the Profile lock box in the Block section.

Username

To enable or disable the field Username, go to the Company tools, on the left-hand side menu, locate Account then click on Tools.

Scroll down to the Login section, click on the Edit button at the top right corner and scroll down until you get to the Username box. Check or uncheck it according to your preferences, then click on End to save changes.

When enabled, this feature allows any information to be used while logging in, such as social security number, registration number, among others. Click here to learn how to do so.

In case the tool is disabled the username will be the email registered.

How can I create new questions?

To add a new question to your Registration form press the +Add question button in the top left corner.

How can I Mask a plain text answer box?

To mask an answer box is to change the type and amount of characters allowed as a valid answer to this question. For example: when creating a question that requires the participant's ZIP code you may want to limit these answers to 5-digit numerical characters.

You will only see the option to create a mask if Plain text is the selected answer type.

While creating the question choose Plain text as the answer type. Click on the Edit button at the top right corner, then click on the question. You will now see a section which says Mask as shown in this picture:

Follow the guidelines below to set value and/or limit:

  • The # character (only '#') represents any number, allowing participants to enter only numbers in the answer. For example, '###' would allow the user to enter only three numbers.
  • The letter A ('A' only) represents any letter, allowing participants to type only letters in this answer box. For example, 'AAAAAAAA' would allow the user to enter only seven letters.
  • The N character ('N' only) represents any number or letter, allowing participants to type only numbers or letters in the answer.
  • You can add a structure to the answer field (for example, with dashes or period) and this will be shown on the registration form.

Is it possible to find out who opened the form but didn't finish their registration?

A new window will appear and you should select the option Opened form but not enrolled and press the blue button + Add filter and you will have a list of guests who closed the form before registering
