Site Enhancements: Hide Custom Questions Here But Not There

You know how you want lots of information on your participants and you want them to answer a lot of questions, but you want a really short registration process?  And you know how that's kind of like saying you want to lose a lot of weight but you don't want to stop eating pizza and hamburgers every day?

Well, our new custom question functionality helps you lose weight and have the pizza/hamburgers, all at once.

I know... it's magic.

 

HIDE CUSTOM QUESTIONS IN REG, BUT NOT EDIT REG 

With the check of a box, you can now have a custom question not appear in the Registration process while it will appear in the Edit Registration process.

 

HOW DO I DO IT? 

Simple.  Go into Event Setup, click Custom Questions and within any custom question just check the box that says "Hide during registration".  Voila!  It will be hidden in registration but not in Edit Registration.

WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD I WANT TO DO THIS? 

Another fine question.  Here are two reasons:

1. You have additional sponsor/demographic questions you want to ask, but they aren't critical.  So you'd rather have people answer them after they finish registration.

2. You are doing registration at an expo and just want to capture the basics, then let them answer the other questions later.

3. You want to get people through registration as quickly as possible.

(Seriously, I only had two reasons when I started writing, but I came up with a third and figured I'd add this at the bottom rather than just change "two reasons" at the top.)

HOW WILL PEOPLE ANSWER THE HIDDEN QUESTIONS?

Just create a notification email that gets sent to participants right after they register and alerts them to go to the Edit Registration page.  Click here to learn more. (http://bit.ly/2zSNuNa)
