Create custom user fields
Jump to section
Administrators can create custom user fields that apply to a user's profile.
Custom user fields appear on the Register page when a new user creates their Möbius account and on the User Details page within a user's profile.
All fields (including any custom fields) on the Register and User Details pages are required to be completed by the user.
NOTE: If a custom user field is added after a user has already created their account, the field becomes a required field within the user's profile. The next time a user decides to edit their profile, they'll be required to complete the new custom user field(s) on the User Details page before being able to submit their profile changes.
The default required fields on the Register page (which are then displayed on the User Details page) are:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Confirm Password
TIP: Here are some suggestions for custom user field names:
- Program Name
- School Name
- Campus Name
- Phone Number
- Favorite Hobby
Custom user fields are inserted in alphabetical order between the Email and Password fields on the Register page (and User Details page).
