What are Types?

Types allow you to define common custom fields for a particular event, session or ticket. For example, you can add a type of event called 'Workshop' and then add a custom field called 'Speaker' and 'Food provided'; these fields will be available every time you classify an event as the type 'Workshop'.

If you need to collect extra information when customers register for a ticket, you can make a custom field for tickets.

What is a custom field?

Custom fields allow you to hold extra information against an event with a type. You can set up custom fields to apply to the event, session or ticket. Any event custom fields are shown on your events.

Custom fields can have pre-defined options when you already know all the options you support. Just choose pre-defined option when adding a custom field. You can then add all the options separately.
