How do I control which attendee information is required for event registration?

This article provides information on how to designate which fields an event attendee must fill out when registering. In other words, these fields are required.

To learn how to set up registration for an event, please read this article: How do I create a registration form for an event?

Within Advanced, navigate to Settings

From there, scroll down to the events settings, as designated by the word event.

The following can be changed to be required or not required on your event registrations:

  • event.attendant.requires.company
  • event.attendant.requires.e.mail
  • event.attendant.requires.first.name
  • event.attendant.requires.last.name

To edit a setting, click True or False under value and change it to the opposite .

event.attendant.requires.company

Click the value under value, either true or false next to event.attendant.requires.company. Type true or false in the Value field (circled below) to indicate required (true) or not required (false).

  • true - This means the user must include a company name when registering for the event.
  • false - This means the user does not have to include a company name when registering for the event.

Do NOT change the content in the Name or Description field

Changes save automatically.

Follow the same steps for:

event.attendant.requires.e.mail

event.attendant.requires.first.name

event.attendant.requires.last.name

To test changes, register for an event on your website and fail to fill out a required field before submitting.Note: If you do not have access to these System Settings and need adjustments made, contact your site admin or ePublishing Project Manager.
