I have created the INDICO webpage of a conference during which each participant will be given an office.
I would like to add a column to the participants’ list with the heading “Office” to display the office number assigned to each participant.
Does anybody know how to do this? I would have thought it should be possible, but I can’t see how.
By default the participants display menu only allows to make visible (or invisible) a few predetermined fields: “First name”, “Last name”, “Affiliation”, “Country” and so on.
I have tried by adding a posteriori (meaning: after the participants have registered) a new custom field in the registration form (which I can fill-in by hand for each participant), but unfortunately new custom fields do not appear in the participants display menu.
I have also tried changing the name of one of the predefined fields in the registration form, which the system allows to do. For instance, I have tried by changing the heading “Address” to “Office”. This does not work either because the heading change is not properly transmitted to the participants display menu (which keeps showing “Address”, instead of “Office” as a possibility).
The problem is not just that I cannot add a new column to the participants’ list a posteriori. It seems to be a broader one, because the system would not let me display either any new custom fields that I required to fill-in to the applicants. To be more concrete, the registration form I designed required the registrants to indicate the intended dates of their participation. I cannot figure how to show this in the list of participants, which should be an obvious thing to do.
Any help is appreciated.
UPDATE: I think there are a couple of bugs/issues. First, the problems described above seem to occur only if the conference has more than one registration form. If there are more than one, the option of merging them does not allow to show the new custom fields in the participants’ list (even if the two forms have the same fields). If one chooses to show the participants from each registration form separately, then it is possible to display the custom fields (good!), but then the INDICO shows not only the approved registrations but also the reject ones (which is not so good…). All in all, there seems to be a configuration problem when more than two registration forms are used.
