UDF stands for User Defined Field (aka Custom User Field). UDFs are Tenant-specific and used in registration to gather additional data from registrants. UDFs can be added in Studio Webcasting under the Tools Menu > Custom User Fields.
Follow the steps below to create a Custom UDF and to add it to your Registration Page:
Create a Custom UDF
Click the blue plus button in the upper right-hand corner to create a new UDF.
Within the Create Custom User Field menu, you can enter the Description for internal reference.
The Grouping will remain User Fields.
You may select a Data Type to indicate what validation will be applied to the field:
String: A string of text
Number: Number validation
Integer: An integer validation (This validation applies to the “Text Area” Entry Type only.)
Date: A date validation
Logical: A true or false validation using a checkbox field
Entry type options will vary depending on which Data Type is selected.
For example, if you would like to create an opt-in checkbox option, you would select the Data Type “Logical” then select the “Checkbox” Entry Type.
Enable the “Required” button if you want completion of the field to be required by users.
Select “Save” in the lower right-hand corner.
Add the UDF to the Registration Page
Navigate to REGISTRATION and select the applicable registration page.
Select FIELDS and click the blue plus button.
Click on the SELECT EXISTING tab. Navigate to the Custom User Field you just created and make sure it is selected.
To the left of the field, select the icon to drag and drop the field to its desired location. Repeat this for any other fields you wish to reorder.
Select “Save” button in the lower right-hand corner and use the “Customize” and “Preview” buttons in the lower left-hand corner to make additional edits to or preview your Registration page.
