How to set different registration forms for different events?

I have several categories of events but for each category one or two of the questions are different than other registration forms. I have created several question groups now I need to target each question group to a different category of events. How can I set a registration form (question group) for one category then set another form for another category?

The question groups are organized on a per-event basis. If the registration forms need to be different then I would organize additional/different questions into different question groups and only select the ones that apply for that event. Question groups are not organized by category.

Does that make sense?

Hi Garth, yes this does makes sense now that I’ve looked at the individual event and seen where I can select the question group.

However under the Event Options on the right side of the event admin I notice a dropmenu titled: Additional Attendee Registration info? – What is this menu for and how is this menu populated. On initial viewing, this seems like where I would find the question group.

Thanks again for you help.

The “Additional Attendee Registration info?” allows you to set what questions (broadly) the additional attendees will be asked. This option does not affect the primary attendee (normally the one making the registration). The options are:

No info required – they will not be asked questions and therefore attendees for these people will not be created.

Personal information – the default Name and Email questions will be asked and the person will be set up as an attendee.

Full registration information – the default questions and whatever question groups are selected in the Event Questions for Additional Attendees section further down the page will be asked. The attendee will be created.

What all this means is that on an event by event basis you can specify and fully control what questions are asked of both the primary and additional attendees.

Thanks Dean

On one of my event pages I want to replace the default reg. form with another form only because its worded differently. However the Personal INformation form appears by default and the two questions in my new form appear at the bottom. Ideally I’d need Parent’s phone and Parent’s email on the new form to replace the existing phone and email questions on the default form. So how can I do this.

Here is a link to the page in question:

What I would do here is split the questions up into different groups, that way they become more modular.

For instance, I would have the Personal Information group with just names and email. Then use the Address group for the address (your could create a secondary Address group without phone numbers if needed), and create another two groups, one for How did you hear about and one for Parent contact information.

That will allow more flexibility for what questions you want to appear on what events.

Two things to keep in mind:

1) Groups allow flexibility, both in what you show on an individual registration form and the order as well.
2) If the same question appears in two groups and those groups are both attached to an event, only one of those questions will show (there will not be a duplicate).
