Document "is public" setting for custom field groups
Created by: seancolsen
The new setting for making custom field sets public/private got committed to core without any documentation.
This page in the User Guide needs to be updated.
How exactly does CiviCRM change its behavior based on this setting?
As far as I can tell, this setting has only two effects:
- Custom fields attached directly to events are hidden from the event info page if they are part of a private custom field set
- Custom fields attached to some other entities (e.g. participation, contribution, etc... not sure of comprehensive list) are displayed in the registration email sent to participants, but only when this email comes from a back-office registration. These fields will be hidden if they're part of a private set.
