Fields are essentially the building blocks of your registration form. Fields are what gather information, normally inputted or selected by a person registering for your event.
1 - Create a field by clicking the Add Field button
The following will be displayed below:
2 - Field Type
There are several field types you can utilize to collect the information you need. See Field Types and What They Do
3 - Field Name
This will be displayed in the ePly system as well as a short-form heading in the confirmation emails. For the most simplest fields, the field name can be the same as the Label. Some field names are locked to ensure that the most basic information is collected. This is especially important if you are collecting payment on the form.
4 - Label
This is what is visibly displayed on the form. You can offer more description in this text box and the text will be positioned according to the "Position of the label"
5 - Set a Placeholder Text
This is typically unused unless you are asking for information from registrants who don't necessarily know who's going yet and are allowed to contact the event organizer to update that information at a later time. More Information
6 - Position of the label
If it is set to "Top of Field", the label will be on top and the input/options will be below it.
If it is set to "Left of Field", the field will be centered and the label will be to the left of the input/options.
7 - Field Width
You can set how large the input is. For longer list items/options you should set the field width large as to not cut off important text.
8 - Field Visibility
There are 2 options available for field visibility:
'Field Status' indicates the status for a field when the form is initially viewed.
'Field Status on Login' refers to the status when a registrant has logged back in to a previous added registration.
The setting for each of these fields can be set to the following:
- Visible - the field is visible to registrants viewing the form (Logic dependencies may override this)
- Disabled - the field is visible, but cannot be altered (is greyed out)
- Hidden - the field is not visible to registrants viewing the form
These settings can be used for hidden required options, to allow back-end editing of information you would manually input, as well as hidden pricing discounts.
9 - Include in Confirmation Details
Like the Field Name, the information input or selected by the registrant will be displayed in the confirmation email. Uncheck this box if you do not wish to notify your registrants of what they selected.
10 - Validation Error Message Alignment
You can select where the Validation Error will be displayed either the Top, Bottom, Left, or Right of the field. Normally, you wouldn't need to edit this.
11 - Spacing Below Fields
To add space between fields on your form enter a value into the "spacing below field" setting. You will see this option after you click into a field.
15 pixels creates a nice amount of space, but if you need more or less just enter a different value.
12 - Choose how limits are applied if applicable
If there is only one field option, you would usually select "Each item in the list draws from the same limit". However, if there are multiple list items, you can set the limit for each. More Information
