Adding/Managing Custom Questions (for RSVP)

There may be cases when you need to collect information (in addition to meal choices) from your attendees when they RSVP. The Attendees List tool lets you create custom questions (including text and multiple choice questions) to collect all kinds of details when attendees RSVP via the Event Website.

This is a great feature to use if you need to collect things like travel and lodging details or attendee preferences and special needs. And your attendees can return to the Event Website to update their responses if they change.

To Add Custom Questions to an RSVP Pool:

  1. Click on the "Attendee List" tool button on the Event Dashboard - OR - use the Quick Launch tool to select the appropriate Event and the "Attendee List" tool.
  2. Under the RSVP Pool to which you want to add custom questions, click on the "Manage Meal Choices & Custom Questions" link.
  3. Find the "Custom Questions" box and click on the "+" symbol in the top right corner of the box.
  4. Add the question label/text; select a question type (Text, Multiple Choice - Only One Answer, Multiple Choice - Multiple Answers); and designate if a response is optional or required. Click "Continue" when you are finished.
  5. FOR ALL MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS:
    • Enter the first Answer Option and click "Save This Option".
    • Repeat for additional Answer Options until all options have been added.
    • Click "Done".
  6. Repeat to add more custom questions options.
  7. To change the order of the questions, use the "up/down" arrow to the left of the question and drag it to where you wish to place it.

On this page, you can view a list of attendee responses for each question as as well as answer tallies for multiple choice questions.

You can edit or delete a custom question on this page by clicking the "Edit" or "Delete" button to the right of the question.

NOTE: If you delete a custom question, it will not only remove the question but also delete any responses from attendees who have answered the question.

To Add/Update an Answer to a Custom Question for an Attendee:

  1. Click on the "Attendee List" tool button on the Event Dashboard - OR - use the Quick Launch tool to select the appropriate Event and the "Attendee List" tool.
  2. Find the appropriate attendee; click on the double-down arrow next to their name; and select the "View/Manage" option.
  3. To add/change an answer to a question, find the appropriate RSVP Pool and the appropriate question and click on the "Edit" button to make your addition/change.
