The Registration form and Guest form fields can be found under Guests and Registrations on the event settings page. These forms are useful for collecting important information, such as name, contact number, T-shirt size, food preferences, etc., from the main and the accompanying guest for the event.
Here's the basic difference between both forms and when to use what form.
The Registration form takes the details for the Main Guest only.
Use this when it is relevant to collect certain information from the main guest or event registrant only. For example - a class year or affiliation for planning yearbook distribution.
Registration forms are forms that need to be filled only once per registration, regardless of how many guests are on the registration. Great for asking questions like table preference or accommodation requirements.
The Guest form takes the details for the main guest as well as their accompanying guests. For example - If you register with 2 additional guests, the guest form will show 3 different forms for all of you.
Guest forms are forms that need to be filled out by each guest. If there are 3 guests on the registration, the form needs to be filled 3 times. Great for asking questions like food preference or T-shirt size.
This form shows up when the Permit accompanying guests option is toggled on. Use this form when it is necessary to collect information from all the guests. For example - food preferences if the event has lunch or dinner plans for all guests.
Where can admins check the submissions on both forms for each guest?
Under the Guest Details, hover on the right side of the guest and click on View Details. The submissions can be quickly accessed on View Booking Form and Guest on this registration.

View Main and Accompanying Guest Form: This shows the submissions made under the Guest Form for each guest.
