Event Questions


Staff can add questions to an event or event session which constituents answer during the registration process.Examples include:

General event question: How did you hear about the event?

Specific session question: Do you have any dietary restrictions for the banquet?

Certain types of event questions have one or more event question option which gives constituents different options from which they can choose to answer the question. Constituents answers to Event Questions are saved in a separate object, Event Answers.

Questions are answered on the Customize the Experience Page in Community Hub and the Add Registration Page in the Staff View order process.
