Customised fields

Here’s an overview of the kinds of fields that you can add to your workspace's profiles:

  • Text will create an open text field for members to complete.
  • List of options will show a drop-down menu of the options you include.
  • Link gives members the option to add a URL, such as for a social media profile.
  • Date can be used to show things such as start dates and birthdays.
