Adding Custom Stipulation Questions in SignUp

When setting up event registration in SignUp, you have the option to add custom questions. It is important to note that these questions do not allow or disallow a patron to register based on the patron's answer, they are simply statistic gathering questions.


From the Registration tab, click "Add New Question" in the Questions section. Any questions you have previously entered for the branch in which you are creating this event will be listed on the "Include Existing Question" tab. Click the "Add New Question" tab to create a new question. Select the type of question, enter the question text, and enter any applicable answers. By default, a patron can skip a question if he or she does not wish to answer it. If you want to ensure a patron answers a question before he or she submits a registration, check the "Response Required" box.


There are several types of questions available to choose from. Listed below are the options to choose from, a description of how a patron interacts with the question, and an example of how the question will appear.

Text Box: enter plain text

HTML is also valid within the question and answer fields. This could prove useful for including links to attendance policies or fee policies for events that you'd like your patrons to read. Here is a quick example of how to add a "I agree to the terms and conditions" question. Note that the answer field cannot be blank, but we don't necessarily want any text next to the checkbox on the form. To resolve this, enter any HTML tag such as <br> (click to enlarge):

Add an HTML question

The above question will result in this text on the registration form:Example of "I have read and agree..."
