Seminar custom fields


You can add custom fields to a range of forms (Sign-up, User Cancellation, Event Cancellation) and elements (Event, Asset, Facilitator, Room) within a seminar activity to request or provide information. 

Event custom fields will only appear on the events dashboard.

Seminar custom fields can be managed by Site Administrators via the quick-access menu under Seminars > Custom fields.


The seminar activity area on the course homepage is a tightly summarised version of information, whereas the events dashboard contains a more detailed and comprehensive view.

Any number of custom fields can be added to each of the forms and elements and the selections made by users on the site included within custom reports.
