This article guides you on adding new input fields to gather students’ information during registration and checkout.
While signing up on your course platform, the learners are required to provide their details. For example, First Name, E-mail id & password are some pre-defined fields that are mandatory for learners to fill. However, you have the flexibility to configure other fields.
Steps to add new Custom Fields
Dashboard > SETTINGS > Custom Fields
Your “Field Name” should communicate what information are you asking for. This will be visible to the user on the signup page, checkout page, or before accessing their courses based on this field’s setting.
Example: Mobile Number, Age, Gender, etc
Specify what kind of custom field you want to create.
We support this field type can choose one from the following:
Field Type Example: Address.
Field Type Example: Date of Birth
Field Type Example: Mobile Number.
Field Type Example: How did you know about my course?
Field values: Friends, Family, Online Ad.
Field values: Male, Female, Prefer not to say.
- Image Upload
Example: Upload std. 12th mark sheet.
Once you select the following field types there are a few options of configuration that you can choose from:
Is Part of Sign Up
While signing up, a few fields are pre-defined.
For Example: First Name, E-mail id & password are some pre-defined fields that are mandatory for learners to fill. Through this option, you can enable additional fields while signing up.
In order to specify additional fields, just move the toggle button.
Is Part of Check Out
If you want your learners to give additional information as a checkout process, you can enable this field.
In order to enable this option, move the toggle button.
Before Accessing Course
You can add custom fields after learners purchase the course & before accessing them. In order to enable this option, move the toggle button.
Once the learners submit a piece of information, you can pre-decide if they would be able to update this field later on from their profile or not.
If you want to make a field mandatory, your learners won’t be able to proceed ahead before filling up that information.
Please note that asking for too much information during signup will reduce your conversion.
