CREATE CUSTOM FIELDS FOR USER ACCOUNTS


When people register on your EasyCampus, they are asked to fill in some information about themselves. More information is available for entry in a user’s profile. If you want, you can add your own fields either at registration or to user profiles. For example, you may need to know a person’s background, industry, or other information.


Before You Begin


  • Decide upon a name for your new field

Example: industry

  • Decide on a type. Available types include checkbox, menu, or text entry.

Begin


  • Locate the Site Administration menu on the left side of your landing page. This is the page you see when you first login to your EasyCampus. Click Users and then click Accounts. In the list of options that unfolds, click User Profile Fields. The middle portion of the screen will change and you will be able to add your new field.
If you have a Tools menu, you can use the shortcut on the bottom of the menu

Note: If you are adding a few fields or want to categorize your fields (for example, fields related to industry, fields related to previous education, etc.) consider creating a new profile category for your fields before creating the fields.

  • From the dropdown, select the type of your new field. A form to help you define your field will display. Each type has a different form, but at minimum, you will define a short name, long name, and contents for your field.

If you want your field to display on registration, make sure you set Display on signup page to Yes.

Sample Profile Field Configuration
  • At the bottom of the form, click the Save Changes button. Your field will be saved and you will return to the previous page. If you like, you can continue creating fields in the same way.
