Custom Questions are used to collect further information from registrants at the time of registration. A common Custom Question might be: What is your t-shirt size? Another example might be Who is authorized to pick your child up from camp? The responses can be in the form of a textbox, multi-line textbox, drop down list or check box. See the Custom Questions section of Program Fields for more detailed information.
A common scenario is that many of the same custom questions are asked across different programs while registering an individual (and/or family members) for multiple programs that will be processed in the same batch (shopping cart session). As a way to facilitate entry of these responses, RecDesk provides an Auto-Fill Custom Question Answers button that will use previous custom question responses to pre-fill responses for new registrations in the same session.
If there are auto-fill responses available for the session, the Auto-Fill Custom Question Answers button will appear. Simply click that to auto-fill any previously answered custom questions of the same type (see below). The following rules apply as to what responses can be auto-populated based on previous responses:
Must be the same custom question response type (textbox, multi-line textbox, drop down list or check box)
The question text must be EXACTLY the same (case-sensitive)
For drop down lists, the list of possible responses must be EXACTLY the same (case-sensitive)
