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.

        The following link shows information we need to post for each ride.

        http://www.elbowvalleycc.org/events/details.asp?eventid=1430

        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

        Meeting

        MTB Rides

        Multi-Day (Road)

        Pathways

        Road Rides

        Social

        Training

        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.

        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?
