For example only allow numbers, text or radio box/selection list in the field.
One question we ask is if it's okay to use photo graphs on our website. It's a yes/no question and I'd like to have a radio box with just those two options. Pitchero does this aspect well but I found bugs in the implementation that limited it's usefulness.
CUSTOM FIELDS in the membership form have been improved to:
1. Allow you to make a field mandatory
2. Allow you to add a list of options for the member to select from
This new feature is as a result of a number of club led requests and we believe adds real value to your sites.
So for example you can now collect important information like permission for photographs to be used or consent to club terms and conditions or helpful information (which may be set as non-mandatory) such as area you work in, school you attend etc.
To use this feature simply add as many custom fields as required and they will appear in the same order on the members profile page. The options for you to complete are as follows:
Field Label – what the member sees and is used in your custom attributes report
Description – helps the member better understand the data you are collect and why it is needed
Mandatory – if you want to make this mandatory please check this box, please consider GDPR implications of collecting data to ensure it is necessary and used as you state. Once those boxes are completed for the first custom field click save custom fields. Then you are presented with “choices”.
Complete choices – if you want the member to select from a drop down then please add in all your choices here and save again. Remember if a field is only applicable to adults or junior put a “not applicable” option in.
Complete this for each of the custom fields you wish to capture.
There is a report in member reports which allows you to see all these fields in a downloadable format (member custom attributes).
