How to Add Custom Questions to your Entry Form

Overview

The entry form for your event is a great way to capture important information about your participants. Eventrac captures crucial details such as Name, Gender, Address & DOB however you may want to find out more information about the people entering your event. Adding custom questions can be useful if you want to do some market research (Where did you hear about this event?), ask important race information to help you plan (Do you require parking?) or even get entrants to submit an est. finish time so you can order your bib numbers.
