To specify fields for a specific sign up sheet on TimeToSignUp that participants complete when signing up on your sign up sheets, please follow these steps:

  1. Log in
  2. Go to your sign up sheet
  3. Using the "Sign Up Sheet Administrator Options..." drop-down menu, select "Custom Fields."
  4. Edit the fields by renaming them. This changes the text that displays when participants sign up. For example, if you want the participant to enter their t-shirt size, rename one of the fields to "T-Shirt Size."
  5. To make a field optional, required or hidden, use the drop-down menu to change its status. 
    1. optional - participants can enter data, but they won't be required to enter data
    2. required - participants must enter data in the field
    3. hidden - participants will not see the field; the field will not be displayed to participants when they sign up 
  6. If you want participants to enter a response that you pre-defined, you can define a list of responses that will be displayed to participants in a dropdown menu.
    1. Check the box for "Custom Drop-Down Responses" 
    2. Enter the list of choices from which your participants can choose
    3. When participants sign up, they will see a dropdown menu of the choices you entered
  7. When finished, click on the "Save Required Fields & Alternate Field Names" button.

Note 1: Changing the custom fields for one sign up sheet affects the current sign up sheet. If you want to change the fields for all sign up sheets in your account, use the account-wide settings.
Note 2: You cannot change the name of the first name, last name or email address fields. First name and last name are always required; email address can be optional, required, or hidden.
