List of field options

  • Text
  • Option
  • Help
  • Text Area
  • Mandatory

Important: Every time you are adding a new field, it gives you the option to make the answer “required” for your participants.


Text -> A Text field allows you to ask participants questions. An example could be emergency contact.


Option -> This feature is an opportunity to give your participants more options. An example could be to offer participants to sign up for your newsletter. You are also able to add a price in this field.


Help -> Here you can inform participants about details they should know prior to race day. An example could be to inform about prices and taxes.


Text Area -> Text Area is a more detailed feature than Text. It allows your participants to add a longer and more detailed answer. For example race preparation.



Mandatory-> This field will be mandatory for participants. An example could be a price for registration fee.


Chip -> If you have participants who register with their own chips, this field allows them to fill in their own chip numbers.



Dropdown -> This feature is used when registrants need to choose from multiple options. An example could be t-shirt selection with the option to choose a size.


Date -> Here you can ask for a date. This could be date of birth, date of last race etc.


Charity -> If you are fundraising money for a charity, you can select minimum and maximum donations here.


  1. After choosing your fields, click go to front page -> Registration. The chosen field options will appear as shown below.
