In hopes of avoiding confusion, a few districts have requested the ability to hide selected online registration fields from the parents. As an example, you may want to hide the School field. Allowing parents to select a school may lead them to believe that this is the school their child will be attending. Hiding this field eliminates the confusion.
But don't worry, hidden fields will definitely be addressed. The system requires that whomever approves online registration forms, often office staff, complete these fields.
When it comes time for internal review, forms will either be rejected or finalized. If the hidden field is not completed, the following error message will appear:
Required fields not supplied, submission not accepted.
This message lets reviewers know that OnCourse required fields need to be filled out before the registration form can be saved. The specific fields that need attention will be noted in the error message.
If you would like to add this feature to selected online registration form fields, please contact OnCourse Support and we'll get you setup right away.
