Can I create email tokens based on my custom registration fields?

Email tokens are a great way to easily include various components of your webinar into your email using a shortcut method.

Create custom registration fields as custom email tokens to include into your emails. This way, during your registration, if an attendee answers a question to that custom registration field, they would receive an email that includes their answer. 

For example, if an attendee expressed interest in a registration field about a specific topic, that answer would reflect in their emails (registration confirmation, reminder, etc.) as a reminder of what their interest was for your event. It helps to keep the attendee engaged before the event and gives insight into what your audience is most interested in hearing about.

This is what the registrant received:
