    Create Pre-Entry Form Fields For Your Contest

    When you’re running a contest on ViralKit, it’s essential to gather the right information from your participants while providing a seamless and enjoyable entry experience. Setting up pre-entry form fields effectively is a crucial part of this process. This documentation will guide you through the various form fields available for customization, including mandatory fields, optional fields, social login integrations, and email verification features.

    Mandatory Fields

    Every contest entry form on ViralKit requires two essential pieces of information:

    • Full Name: Captures the participant’s complete legal name for identification purposes.
    • Email: Ensures a valid point of contact for communications regarding the contest.

    These fields are the cornerstone of your contest’s entry data, helping you to maintain a line of communication with participants and to identify winners.

    Social Logins

    To streamline the entry process further, ViralKit offers the option to integrate social logins. Here’s what you need to know:

    Available Social Logins: The platform allows participants to sign in using various social media accounts, which can include:

    • Google
    • Facebook
    • Twitter X
    • LinkedIn
    • Twitch
    • Telegram
    • Reddit
    • Discord
    • Tumblr

    Require Social Login: You can choose to make social logins a requirement for your contest. When required, it hides all other custom pre-entry form fields until the participant completes the social login, creating a smoother entry process.

    Custom Form Fields

    Beyond the basic name and email, you can collect additional data from your participants through various customizable form fields:

    • Address: For mailing items or demographic data.
    • Address Line 2: Additional address details.

    • Anti-Fraud: This step helps to deter fraudulent entries by ensuring each email is valid and accessible by the entrant.
