Firstly, to create the custom registration form fields,

  • Go to My Events>>Edit Event>> Setup>> Essential Setup>> Registration Form>> Add Custom Field

1.Single Line Text

It allows the attendee to fill up short answers or one-word answers and limit the length of responses (e.g., for mobile numbers, you might want to limit the response to 10 to 11 digits attendees don't put invalid numbers.). Due to its flexible nature, you can ask many different and fundamental questions such as Age, Mobile Number, Short comments, etc.

2.Paragraph Text

It allows the attendee to fill up longer answers or for full sentences in the paragraph format. For example, this Paragraph Text would help the audience what they expect to learn from this workshop when organizing a workshop.

3.Multiple Choice

It allows attendees to choose one option from a preset of answers. As an example, it would be useful to ask the attendees to select the food preferences.

  • List Layout: It can change the way the options are displayed. Here's an example of the previous field arranged in two columns.

  • Add "Other" option: This checkbox allows the attendees to address their needs when none of the options above applies.

It allows attendees to choose more than one option. As an example, it would be useful to determine how attendees get to know about your event.


It is almost similar to Multiple Choice, but the preset of answers would be shown as dropdown lists when the attendees click on the field.


All the country lists are included as a built-in feature in that field, and the attendees do not need to type each country name manually. It would be useful when you want to add country of residence, country representation, etc., as part of the registration form information.

7. GroupHeader

It allows the placement of all similar information into one unit and group-related data by adding a group header to the Form. For example, all personal data can be grouped under Personal Information, whereas all work-related information is grouped under Work Information.


It allows providing a longer, more exhaustive explanation for an upcoming section/question. For example, you can add the description before Privacy Preference to inform the attendees of their data privacy rights.

9.Horizontal Line

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


It allows users to input dates in various formats, such as information of an attendee's date of birth or other data about trip planning, such as their date of arrival or check-in date.

11. Breakout Sessions (Radio List & Dropdown List)

It allows you to limit the number of attendees to each session if you have multiple sessions/concurrent sessions for the attendees to choose from. The Radio Lists allow the preset of event sessions would have appeared in multiple-choice format, whereas the Dropdown List would be shown when the attendees click on the field.

  • Session ID: For internal use in reports.

  • Session Name: It is the name of the event session which will be visible to the attendees.

  • Session Description: Its description can be used for internal reference.

  • Slots Available: It can limit the number of spaces available, and that option cannot be checked once the number of attendees signing up for this option has reached this number.

12.File Upload

It can be useful to ask for some documents from the attendees like photos, consent forms, etc., and limit the Allowed File Type and Maximum File Size in the edit menu. This feature is currently hidden by the admin team as it's not commonly used, but it can be requested to the EventNook team when you need it.
