Additional fields for posting events
Like the requestors in http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8827369-additional-fields-for-posting-events , we have a bicycle club and are considering using wild apricot software. Our bike club (as do many others) list our rides with distance, speed, terrain and ride leader and leader phone number as standard fields. This lets potential riders decide whether an event is appropriate for them.Since we plan to allow individual ride leaders to post events, having additional fields will help them make sure all the necessary information is input.

This suggestion in its various forms is littered throughout the Events wish list, which, unfortunately keeps the votes down. Offering the ability to create multiple custom fields that are part of the event database, not the contact or member database, exactly like you do for the contact and member databases, would be the most brilliant and flexible upgrade you could make to your event module.

I would love to have additional fields that could be filled out by event creators. This would make sure all the pertinent data is listed and add consistency for users.
There is a similar request thread here: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8826001-event-details-templates
We are a kayaking club and have the same requirement. It is really important to us to list the leader with an event

Sorry, but this is not possible. As stated above you will have to manually enter this info within the event description http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Setting+up+events#Addingnewevents-Specifyingeventdetails instead.
The following link shows information we need to post for each ride.
The coordinator would post each ride with a series of fields with drop-down lists.
For example, Ride Type has the options:
Easy Riders Road
Is there a way of including this type of information as part of the event posting ie. (not in the registration form). If not, the product will not be useful to us.
Fluid Apricot commented
Unfortunately no, its currently not possible to add to those default system fields (like start date, location etc). You will have to manually add these fields within the event description itself. (One idea is to create a "template event" with all these fields already in the description and just copy that event as needed)
We have coordinators who setup trips for our cycling club. Each trip has a number of standard fields the coordinator needs to choose to create the trip (ie. ride type, difficulty, length) so that members will know what they are signing up for. Is there a way to add additional field to the event details page much like the registration form?
