25Live Pro allows you to add discrete options in the form of dropdown choices to event custom attributes you or your administrator(s) have defined. This functionality allows you to let event creators more accurately convey information with limited choices rather than a freeform text field.

Dropdown options for custom attributes show in the Event Details view and can be edited inline.
