Setting up your event typeform

Registration forms are one of the easiest ways to incorporate a typeform into your event planning. With Typeform’s variety of question types, you can collect any information you need about future attendees - and details like dates, emails, and phone numbers will be stored in an easy-to-use, standardized format.

Here’s an example of a simple event registration form:

This form uses Text, Email, and Multiple Choice question types to score contact details for new leads and gain insights into attendees’ interests:

Use typeforms at several points before, during, and after your event to plan specifics and measure success. Get inspired with these ideas:

Keep respondents engaged with Logic and Hidden Fields

With Logic, you can streamline your respondents’ experience so that answering a typeform feels like a conversation, not a chore!

Use respondents’ answers to skip over questions they don’t need to see - for example, if you’re planning a catered breakfast and ask respondents about their diet, you can make sure not to follow up by asking vegans how they’d like their omelettes:

Hidden Fields are another great way to personalize your event typeforms. Hidden Fields are prefilled variables that live right in your typeform’s URL. They typically contain information like traffic source, respondent name, or user location, like the example here shows:

https://form.typeform.com/to/xRKttB4w#name=xxxxx&city=xxxxx&source=xxxxx

When you get typeform responses, you can see the respondents’ Hidden Field values, letting you know which of your links have gotten the most responses! Learn more here.

You can also use your favorite CRM tool, like Mailchimp, to automatically prefill Hidden Fields values. Check out how it’s done here.

Collect typeform responses from anywhere on the web

When you publish a typeform, we give you a handy link that you can send to anyone who wants to fill out your form on desktop or mobile.

But that’s not all! With Typeform’s range of embed options, it’s easy to add your form to any page on your website, including sites built on popular hosting solutions like WordPress, Squarespace, and Shopify:
