It is possible to customize what information fields are shown/required when a user (admins, managers, and learners) registers or updates their profile. To access Custom Labels you will need to go into your Platform Settings and click System Configuration. From there, click on the Custom Labels tab. To enable a field, make sure you click the box in the Enabled column. If you want a field to be mandatory, simply check off the button in the Required column. If you want a field to be used as internal notes for administrators, enable Admin Only.
Once you’re satisfied, click Update Labels. Any new custom fields will also appear when you generate Reports.
ANY CHANGES MADE TO CUSTOM FIELD LABELS WILL ONLY AFFECT THE LABELS AND WILL NOT CHANGE ANY PRE-EXISTING DATA.
For example, if you had a field labelled Company and a user entered SkyPrep, if you changed Company to Phone Number, the user will have SkyPrep listed as their phone number. Please keep this in mind before you make any changes. If you do make changes that affect fields with previously entered data, you will need to either update the fields manually or notify your users and have them change the information.
