Profile fields can be added and customized according to the needs of your organization. It is recommended to add fields such as “Position” or “Location” for others in the organization to see, however, you can also add less formal fields for employees to say something about themselves and to allow everyone to get to know each other better.

- Click the “Settings” tab to the left
- Select the “Profile Fields” subtab
To add a profile field, click the “+ Add Profile Field” button in the top right corner and select your desired format.
Under the “Label” column, give your profile field a name.
In the "Type" column the appropriate kind of information should be selected.
Note: Please use the text type if you want to add a landline phone number. The field type number does not support phone numbers.
Under the “Visibility” column, define who will have access to this piece of information.
You can prevent the employee from modifying a profile field by unchecking the box under the “User can modify” column. This can be used for information such as employee IDs or payroll IDs.
By checking the box under the "Required" column, this will mean that once a user has inputted a value in the profile field, they cannot choose to leave that field empty prior to saving the profile. Users will be able to save their profiles without inputting values in the required fields.
Leave the “Placeholder” column as is.
When ready, click “Save.”
