"Organization" name in database

In the attendee tables there is a column showing for “Organization” but currently it’s blank for all attendees and I don’t see an option for it in Questions so customers can fill out on registration. Is there a way to do that?

We don’t recommend making any changes to the database. If you need to request specific information from attendees, then you can create a question and assign it to a question group.

Then enable that question group for any events that you want to capture this information for.

Right, I wasn’t asking about altering the database though. I was asking about the fact that “Organization Name” is field already present in the attendee database, and as such, how do I get attendees to populate it when they register?

Because I do not see “Organization Name” anywhere in the system questions. Will it work if I just create a custom question for “Organization Name?”

Hi Tim,

The short answer is no, at least not without some customisation.

I’m not sure why that column is there, perhaps its a placeholder for something or a left over form a previous version. Either way looking at the code it simply isn’t used. On top of that the data used to pre-fill the registration form is obtained from the profile page and not the attendees table.

A quick test showed even adding a new profile field would not assist as the code base isn’t looking for anything other than the core name, email and address info.

Sorry about that!

Thanks Dean! Well, at least that answers the question. And you also answered another related question e.g. “can we add it to user profiles?” Thanks for testing
