A quick overview! ✨
Each event has its own dedicated registration page with its own registration form.
By default, there are two fields that registrants must fill out: First Name and Email. You can also add additional fields that any potential registrants can fill out (which we'll cover how to do now).
Additionally, if you want to customize the page itself, you can do so through the Registration Editor.
Let's get started!
To begin, you'll want to hop into the Customize area for your event. From there, you'll find the Registration card where you'll be able to tweak anything related to your registration process.
To get going with adding custom form fields, you'll want to navigate to the Edit Form Fields tab.
This is where you'll be able to view and manage your form fields. You'll find that the two default fields have already been created for you - First Name and Email.
By toggling the Enhanced Validation option, you can enable/disable Email Verification for the registrant's email address. This would automatically validate and deny undeliverable email addresses from registering.
Adding Form Fields
You can add additional ones by clicking "Add another field"
This will bring up a modal where you can select the type of field you want to add:
We've created the following predefined fields to your form with just one click:
- Last Name
- Phone Number (validates and auto-formats entries)
- Website (validates for a URL)
- GDPR (optional checkbox with customizable text)
Note: If you have GDPR compliance enabled on your account, the GDPR checkbox will be added automatically by default.
Once you select your field, you can decide whether you want to make it optional or required:
If you are creating a custom form field, you can select the type of field you would like to use. You are able to select from the following options:
- text field (with the option to validate for a URL/number)
- text area
- dropdown (up to 100 options)
Once selected, fill in the details. Keep in mind that there is a character limit of 50 for the field name.
You'll also have the ability to set the field as Required, which will require the potential registrant to complete that field before they can register. On the other hand, Optional fields won't need to be filled.
Important: The ability to create custom form fields will be available for all Growth/Business users. Any users on the Starter plan will be able to add predefined fields.
Managing Form Fields
You can also edit the fields, change the order of your form, or remove any custom fields if you change your mind.
To edit the field, click on the dropdown to the right of the registration section and click on "Edit field"
If you are looking to change the order of the fields, select the icon to the left of the field and rearrange as needed.
If you would like to remove a field, you can do so by click on the dropdown on the right and selecting "Delete Field"
Once you remove a field, you will not be able to bring it back. However, all data that was previously recorded will be saved. You will not be able to remove "First name" and "Email" as these are default fields in Demio.
Reviewing form and data
Once you are all set, you can review the form by using the registration link under the "Share" tab
You will be able to enter the information in the the fields:
Once registered, the info will show under the "Activity" tab under the "People" section as well as the unique join link:
