Choose ‘+ Add standard field’ and click on the standard field you’d like to add.

If needed, change the field name.

The fields will be autosaved and are directly available in the preview (on the right).

For certain standard fields, you can use variables in the emails. More information about this here.


Custom registration fields

Need more information that cannot be obtained with a standard field? Add a custom field.

There are three types of custom fields:

Textbox

This is a regular textbox that can be added as an optional or mandatory field.

Dropdown

This is a list of choices, the subscriber can choose one answer from the list. This is mainly used when you’ve got more than 5 options to choose from. This registration field can be added as an optional or mandatory field.

Radio buttons

This is a list of choices, that will directly show the answers. The subscriber can choose one answer from the list.


Creating a mandatory field

Click on your webinar > "Edit webinar" > "Registration" > "Registration fields".

The email and first name fields are always mandatory.

Click on the registration field you’d want to change to a mandatory field. This will now expand, click ‘Mandatory field’ on the checkbox to make it mandatory.


Relocate a field

You’re able to change the order of all registration fields. Do this by right-clicking on a field and keep pressing down.

Relocate the registration field up or down and release the right mouse button to save the new location.


Remove a field

Did you create a registration field you no longer want to use? No problem, removing a field is easy.

Click on your webinar > "Edit webinar" > "Registration" > "Registration fields".

Click on the bin behind the registration field to remove it.


Permission fields

With the new GDPR privacy laws, it is required to ask permission to people that register in order to legally process and/or save their personal data.

For adding permission fields to the registration form of your webinars, there are two options.

General permission fields

You can create permission fields that are valid for all created webinars

To do this, go to "My Account", click on "Permission fields" under "Privacy & Security".

Click here for more information to set this up on an account level.

Permission fields for each webinar

You can also create a separate permission field for each webinar.

For example, you can do this when one webinar requires extra conditions compared to the other.
