Types of Fields for Customized Registration Form

EventNook allows organizers to customize their registration form to collect their attendees' details.
 
Here we will be looking at each type of field and how it can be used. We have 7 different types of fields:

1. Single Line Text
2. Paragraph Text
3. Multiple Choice
4. Checkboxes
5. Dropdown
6. Address
7. Country List
8.GroupHeader
9. Horizontal Line

1. Single Line Text

Single Line Text is useful because it allows the attendee to fill up short answers or one word answers. It can also be used to ask many different questions due to its flexible nature. 

An example would be when you are organising a gathering of Football Enthusiasts, you can ask which Football Club they support!

Note: You can put a limit on the maximum number of characters for the answer.

2. Paragraph Text

Paragraph text is similar to Single Line except as the name suggests, the answer is in the paragraph format. This is usually for longer answers or for full sentences.

An example would be when you are organising a coffee making workshop and want to know what your attendees want to make.

3. Multiple Choice

Multiple choice is used when you want to offer your attendees options to choose from for the question. It is useful if you already have a preset of answers you have came up with.

An example would be when you organize a conference and want to find out the food preference of your attendee.

Note: There are options for you to change the layout of the choices.

4. Checkboxes

Checkboxes is similar to multiple choice except attendees can choose more than one option in contrast to multiple choice, where you can only choose one.

An example would be when you want to find out how your attendees got to know about your event.

5. Dropdown

Dropdown serves the same purpose as multiple choice. The only difference is that the options will be listed in a menu when the attendee clicks on the field.

6. Address

As the name implies, the address field can be used when you want to have the attendee include an address. It can be used for many types of addresses depending on your event. (Billing address, home address, work address, etc.)

7. Country List

As the name implies, country list can be used if you need your attendee to include their country as part of the information. (Country of residence, country representation, etc.)

An example for this is when you organize an international MICE event, you can include this and have your attendees list the country they are representing.

8.Group Header

Group Header is used when one desires to place all similar /related information together into one unit.In a registration form, you can group related data by adding a group header to the form.
Screenshot below shows all personal information grouped together under "Personal Information" whereas all work related information is grouped under "Work Information". 

9.Horizontal Line

Horizontal line can be used as a visual separator of controls on a form.
