This list of currently create forms is displayed. To create a new form select the "Add Form" button in the top right and select the "Add Entry Form" or select the manage button for the form.
The list of currently configured fields are shown on the entry fields data table, where a site manager has the ability to manage, delete and add new fields.
Table columns explained:

- Type: The type of field
- Order: The position the field will be shown on the user registration form
- Mandatory: Whether the field is required to be filled by the end-user
- Actions: the actions that can be performed against the individual field
Note: only custom fields can be deleted, a number of standard fields are required by the platform and can not be removed by a site manager. If you require modification to the required fields, our professional services team should be able to help.
Step 2 – Add Field

There are number of standard properties that need to be entered such as Label, Order and Mandatory and then use the Type property to select the field type you would like to add.
