When users are registering into a class, more information such as Hotel, Arrival Time, etc. needs to be captured. How can these fields be added to capture this information?

  • Custom Fields can be assigned to Classes when creating them.
  • These can be used to collect various data during the registration process for a Class (from employee, manager, or admin), for example personal travel requirements such as hotel needed.
  • This data can later be accessed, exported and/or printed, by the admin.

On the Administrator side

  1. Go to System Admin -> Custom Fields -> Special Requests
  2. Choose Add New
  3. Add the necessary information per business requirements


As the custom fields have been created, they can be added to either existing classes or new classes.

  1. Go to Learning Activities > Classes
  2. Search and find the Class you need to modify
  3. Go to the Special Requests tab
  4. Select Add/Remove Columns


If you are creating a new Class:

  1. Go to Learning Activities > Classes
  2. Select Add New
  3. Select Add/Remove Custom Fields under Special Requests Custom Fields
  4. Add the custom fields which are relevant to the Class
  • This information will be shown on the Registration Status Report. 
  • The custom fields for the Special Requests will only be available for Classes and not for Online Content
