The Demographic checklist item widget is used to tie the completion of several system forms about a candidate's family (primarily parents) to a checklist item.
The Demographic Sections Detail Category
The configuration for the new functionality is managed using this new detail category available on the Registration Season Type record. There is a line item record for each of the sections, allowing you to configure each of them independently.
