Why am I seeing "this blank value is not part of the custom field"?
Don't worry if you see the above label on your custom field - this will only appear if you are logged in as an admin! Members will see a blank option instead of this text.
Where does the custom field data get stored?
Custom field data collected at the time of registration gets stored on the attendee's event registration record. This means that you can access the data when your are viewing reports related to your event such as an Attendees Report or Detailed Event Report. Custom field data collected during event registration does not get stored in user profiles.
