This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit REG-I-48 Map Variables/Custom Fields in Player Import.
When a player renews their registration for a new season, some of the predefined fields are carried forward by checking the "Auto Fill from Past Response" box on the field, but many predefined fields do not support this, and none of the custom defined fields are able to do this.
It would really help to be able to carry forward any field by checking a box similar to what is done for email or phone. For predefined fields, like Name, Email, or Phone it works great, but other fields like Gender and Birth Date should also support it. We also use custom Question fields to hold something like the membership number from the national organization that should be able to carry forward with each new registration.
Naturally, the internal field names would need to stay the same for something like that to work, but we could manage that.
