Change default name on registers

Hi I have a website where parents sign up for events on behalf of their children. So in the registration form I have the standard ‘First Name’ and ‘Last Name’ fields for the parent, and have also created a field for ‘Childs Name’.

On the registers for check-ins, the parents name is displayed by default. Is it possible to change this to display the input from ‘Childs Name’ instead?

Not exactly, but here’s what you can do:

You can capture the Child’s first & last name using the standard “First Name” and “Last Name” fields. You can edit the fields’ names to be “Child’s First Name” & “Child’s Last Name”. Then, you add a new field for “Parent’ Name”.

This way, on the registration check-in and lists, the Child’s name will be displayed.
