Additional details in registration form not in Edit Contact screen

My setup is WordPress 5.2.2 and Event Espresso 4.10.0.p. (wp user integration and multi events are on board).
We have a few fields for the main registrant to be present in the Contact section. The fields are very generic like birth date and gender.
We want users to have the ability to set in once, first of all, and the admin should see them in the “Edit Contact”. Is this somehow achievable via some code snippet? Please help. This thing is crucial for us.

Hi there,

What I think you are looking to do will take more planning than a snippet, for example, you want to add these values to the EE_Contact and edit them through the edit contact screen, however, no-where in EE is going use those values from the contact as EE won’t even know about them when registering.

Are you planning on those values only being used in the contact itself?
If so, how are those values being set in the first place?

If you planning on having these fields available during registration and them setting on the contact, then auto-filling on the registration form you’ll likely need some custom development to both add the values and use them throughout the registration process.

Another option we have (if you are using the WP User Integration add-on) is to use a snippet that can pull the last value used in a registration and autofill that answer for you, like this:

This is something I’ve already found and applied. I thought that there may be another solution. Ok, then. Thanks!
