As part of our partnership with Pride in Sport, GameDay is proud to announce that our system now supports the collection of gender identity data across the product suite wherever gender data is collected. This implementation has bought about updated terminology and input fields to better capture information, as well as represent and include people of diverse genders and sexualities. It also integrates more inclusive gender identity fields into applicable registration forms, member lists, member profile screens, reports and dashboards.
These new fields will automatically appear on registration forms and members profiles so they do not need to be configured to display. On registrations forms, the general gender field will be compulsory however the new gender identity field will be optional so members can choose whether or not to fill this out within all registration forms, both events and membership.
ASSIGNED GENDER AT BIRTH
This field is the existing field related to gender that has always existed on the form and member profiles, we have just updated the terminology.
This field is now called Assigned Gender at Birth and is the sex the member was assigned at birth which is specified on their birth certificate. The options available are:
This is a new field included as optional (by default - but can be made mandatory or hidden) within forms to allow your members to specify their current gender identity.
This field is called Gender Identity and members will be able to select from the following options:
- Non-binary/gender fluid
- Different Identity - if selected a text box will appear for the user to input their identity
- Prefer not to say
CAN I MAKE THIS GENDER IDENTITY FIELD MANDATORY ON FORMS?
Yes. If your organisation would like to have the Gender Identity field mandatory on the form, you do have the option to edit this within the membership or event form settings.
The form owner has the ability to choose if they want this field as optional, mandatory or hidden. If the form your organisation is using is a shared form then you will not be able to adjust these settings.
1. Log into your organisation.
2. Go to PRODUCTS & FORMS (or the EVENTS > MANAGE EVENTS section, if needing to be done on an events form).
3. Click EDIT against against the form.
4. Go to QUESTIONS & LAYOUT.
5. Scroll to find the GENDER IDENTITY field, and change this to MANDATORY.
6. Click SAVE
