How do I Add T-Shirt Size as a Field on DIY Event Registration Form?

On a DIY Event Registration form you may sometimes wish to capture more than just the number of tickets a constituent purchases. One of the most commonly requested additional fields is t-shirt size.
A. First a user defined field for T-Shirt Size must be created:
  1. Click Management on the menu bar
  2. Click User Defined Fields in the Database Configuration column
  3. Click the Category you want to save this new User Defined Field in (ex: Base)
  4. Click New Defined Field under Tasks
  5. Name the Field (ex: T-Shirt Size)
  6. Select Text as your Data Type
  7. Click Next
  8. Select Transaction as your field application (do not check off any other boxes)
  9. Click Next
  10. If you would like to utilize either of these options then check the appropriate box
  11. Click Next
  12. Select Allow Assignment of Only One Item as your Display Type
  13. Click Next
  14. In the Add value tile and type in one of the sizes (ex: Small)
  15. Click Add Value
  16. Repeat this step until you have added all of the sizes you need
  17. Click Save and Finish

B. Once the field has been created, it can then be attached to your registration form:
  1. Click Management in the menu
  2. Click DIY Forms under the Online Presence column 
  3. Click the Edit button next to the event registration form
  4. Once the form is open, click the Add Item button at the top right side
  5. Click Add Fields
  6. Select the category you stored the field under
  7. Click the T-Shirt Size field
  8. Click Update to add the field to the form
  9. To save your changes, click Save in the upper right hand corner, then click Yes, Save My Draft
  10. To update the form in the event it is already live, click Go Live, then Yes, Go Live, then Replace. This will update your live form with the change

Keep in mind, the ticket purchasers will only be able to select one ticket size per field. If you need to allow them to add multiple tshirt sizes, you may want to select Selection from a Set of Values on your User Defined Fields steps (Step 12 in the the first set of steps above).
