Member Custom Fields allow you to ask your Members for additional information that is essential for your organization and keep this data accessible for Officers in the Member Dashboard.

  • Manage your group

  • Click Members, then Custom Fields

    Member Custom Fields page with Add Answer highlighted
  • Click Create Member Custom Fields at the top of the main content section

  • Add a title and select a type. Once you have created a Custom Field, you cannot change the type, so choose carefully. You can also make the field required and determine who has access to it. Once you have made all of you selections, click Submit.

  • If applicable, add options for answers in the Possible Answers section of the Custom Fields table

These questions will now become part of the membership profile. If the questions are required, current members will see a pop-up box upon their next login. This box will require them to either answer the question or leave the Group.

Members can change their answers to required Custom Fields or add answers to non-required Custom Fields from the Group Page by following the steps below:

  • For the Group Page for your Group, click More and then My Membership at the top of the Main Content area

  • Under Membership Information, select Edit my answers

As an Officer, You will be able to find the answers your Group members provided by looking at the Members page on your Group's Dashboard.

Please contact with any questions.
