How do I set certain fields on the registration page to be required?

I would like our page to be able to require certain fields (such as emails, allergies, etc.).  Can that be done?

Yes, go to Promote --> Public Page, Edit Registration Forms, and click the Edit button.

If the edit button is not available and you see the "i" icon, this is because they are locked. This is done because if they are renamed or removed it causes other parts of the system that depend on them to break.

These fields are set to optional by default so they don't have to be filled in (but they do have to be on the page), but if people would like their field/s to be set to required, we can do so it in the backend.

Which of these fields would you like to be set to be required?

I would like the option to edit all fields if possible.

If not all, then at least Email, Phone, Food Allergies, and Medical Concerns.  Thanks!


OK I have set those fields to required. Please let me know if you need any more assistance or further tweaks.
