I am trying to work out how to update custom profile information from the civievent back-end, however I can not get a profile to appear for updating.
Scenario: We are running an event where delegates can either sign-up via our website, or via a paper form. We need to collect specific information for the event such as access and diet requirements. An organiser will be responsible for inputting details from any paper forms received.
I have a profile set up with the additional information which works as expected when used for an online booking and exports without an issue. I have enabled for this profile:
- Used for Standalone Form or Directory, CiviEvent_Additional, Search Views
- Type Associate, Contact, ParticipantEventName::
So, I would have expected this to allow me to input this information either:
- when I go to civicrm/participant/add?reset=1&action=add&context=standalone&eid=XX but it does not appear there
- or when I search for participants, highlight them and try to Update via Batch Profile but it does not appear there either
Of Note: the profile used in the same event used for CiviEvent does not appear either
I did think that I might have to import the data via a CSV, but there must be an easier way that I am missing.
