Custom fields

How to use custom fields on customer profiles.

In Nexudus, the information that you can record on member and contact profiles is quite extensive. However, there are times when this information is not enough to cover specific details that you want to have in your database. For example, there is no standard field for eye colour, assuming that you wanted to record this. You can add up to ten custom fields, which can be displayed on the space sign-up form, on the directory or on the member or contact's profile. You can also use the Yes/No and Options menu custom fields to allow the users of your spaces website to filter the member directory (see the Directory option in the table below).
