Custom questions for attendees

Updated: 08/08/14

  • Collect whatever information you need
  • T-shirt size, meal preference, class or session selection and more
  • Require attendees to accept a waiver

Tip: Many event organizers use this feature to get t-shirt sizes, track class or meal-type selections, monitor referrals, require acknowledgement of a waiver, and much more. Get creative!

If you're looking to create a post-event survey, we recommend using SurveyMonkey to create a survey and then including a link to that survey in an attendee email sent from within Eventbrite after your event has ended.


To get started, first sign up for a free Eventbrite account or log in to your existing Eventbrite account and create an event.

If you’re working an already-created event, click My Events at the top of the screen and then click on the name of your event to get to the Manage page of that event.

How to create ticket types


On the Manage page, click Order Form from the features list on the left side under the Modify Order Options subheading.


Choose one of the following options (either of the last two of the three options shown in the box labeled What type of information do you want to collect?):

1. Collect information below for the ticket buyer only
2. Collect information below for each attendee

How to create custom survey questions


Click Create a Question under Your questions.


Input your question in the Question field. Then choose from a variety of answer formats: text, paragraph Text, multiple choice (check boxes, radio buttons, or dropdown menu), or waiver.


If you choose the multiple choice answer format, input the different choices that will be available to your attendees. If you wish, you can enable a choice limit for each of the choices you give your attendees.

If you choose the waiver answer format, make sure to include the request in the Question field and then input the text of the waiver in the Waiver text field below. The attendee will be required to accept the waiver in order to complete registration for your event.



Under Optional Settings, you can choose to show this question only for specific ticket types as well as show the attendee the answer to this question on the order confirmation. Learn More


Select Save. On the next screen, choose whether you want this question to be Included or Required.


Tip: To view the information that you've collected, you'll want to run an Attendee Summary report, which you can easily export to Excel.
