Who can use this feature?
Only the Application Owner role can use this feature.
What is it?
The user profile configuration allows you to define which personal information a user is asked to enter. The configuration thus defines the look of the User Profile. Before inviting new users, you should make sure that the requested user profile information matches your interests, and context.
How does it work?
Go to the settings wheel and navigate to the Settings Wheel > User Configuration and select User Configuration.
The first thing is the User Field Manager interface. Via the interface, you can add, edit, or delete the attributes that users are asked to fill in.
The table shows all fields that are configured by default for the user profile. The following field types are required:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Business Unit
- Banner Image
- Profile Image
These fields cannot be deleted, but you can edit them. You can always add more fields to the user profile. Learn more about how to add new fields in the Field Configuration article.
Profile Edit Form Configuration
After you have created all user profile fields, you can now configure how they appear for users when editing their profiles. This is configurable via the Form Configuration. In the Form Configuration, you can use drag and drop to arrange the fields.
Profile View Configuration
You can also adjust the order of fields and how a user profile is displayed to other users via the View Configuration.
Defining user contexts
With the release of version 3.11., you can define multiple user contexts which will be used in a comparison of ratings between individuals coming from different contexts. To define a context field, you need to set this in the user field manager by clicking on editing or adding a new field with the field type List Field. Choose dropdown or searchable dropdown as field type renderer and activate the context field. Save the user context field. You will find more information on this feature under Configuring rating criteria.
