# Add and edit custom fields

Custom fields are useful if there are event-specific values that you want to define, which you need on more than one event. The fields can be used in scripts, badges, vouchers and email templates.

It is a three-step process:

  1. Create custom fields.
  2. Define the custom field values for your event. Refer to Configure an event.
  3. Use the field in documents, emails and forms with the Add field

# Create a custom field

  1. Select Custom fields.

  2. Select + Add.

  3. Enter a meaningful name that will help you identify the field, such as "analyticscode". The field name has the following restrictions:

    • It must contain lowercase letters only.
    • It cannot include spaces or special characters.
  4. Select Save.

  5. Visit automatically adds a prefix, #custom:, and a suffix, #, to your field name. This is the custom field code.

# View SPF diagnostics

The SPF diagnostics tab lists all domains that Visit has sent emails from on your behalf in the past six months. A green icon indicates a valid SPF record. A red icon indicates the SPF record is invalid.

An SPF record identifies which mail servers are permitted to send email on behalf of your domain. Its purpose is to prevent spammers from sending messages with forged 'from' addresses at your domain.

Visit checks if it can send emails your domain name. To do this, it checks the SPF (sender policy framework) list of your server. If Visit's mail server is listed, Visit can send emails from your domain. If the mail server is not on your server's SPF list, Visit will send emails with noreply@gesevent.com as the 'from' address.

# Update your SPF records

To set up an SPF record, add a TXT type entry to your domain DNS.

v=spf1 include:servers.gesevent.com ~all

If you already have an existing SPF record then add servers.gesevent.com.
