The Event field is an elegant addition to your forms which allows students to book for events in an intuitive way. This article covers how to set up and optimise your event field, to ensure you're getting the most out of this fantastic tool.

Click to Edit your event field. In the Settings tab, you're able to change the Label and add Help text for the field.
On the Options tab, you're able which event(s) you'd like your field to display on your form. Picking Category will allow students to book onto any upcoming event that belongs to the selected category, whereas picking Single Event will only allow registration to one specific event.
