Capturing Profile Information About Users

A user profile can capture information about the user.  This information can be useful in reports and segmenting users.  There are two types of profile fields, built-in fields and custom fields.  These fields can be filled five different ways:

  • Administrator manually filling it out
  • Bulk import by administrator
  • Users fill fields out upon first log in
  • Users going to their Profile & Settings
  • Through the API

Built-In Fields

Built-in fields are in all user profiles for convince and cannot be changed.  They can be made mandatory for the learner to fill out upon login.  This can be set by:

  1. Go to the Accounts tab
  2. Select Messages & Settings
  3. Navigate to the "Default Fields" section and mark the built in fields required 
  4. Click "Save" at the bottom

Custom Fields

Custom fields are in user profiles only if the custom field has been turned on.  They can also be made mandatory for the learner to fill out upon login.  This can be set by:

  1. Go to the Accounts tab
  2. Select Messages & Settings
  3. Navigate to the "Custom Fields" section, enter the text for the title of the custom field, and mark the built in fields required 
  4. Click "Save" at the bottom
