Can user information be extended?

posts: 41

I would like to provide more information about users.

My academic institution has groups of students, trainers, board members, office staff, newsletter reipients etc.
I would like to add fields such as course, emergency contact, pnone etc.

I don't see anything like this in the documentation or FAQs except for recipients of newsletters.

Is there a way to do it so the user of office staff could maintain this? Could a user be linked to a row in a spreadsheet so that office staff can maintain this information?

Hi  jpurssey

You can also get that user tracker applied in your tiki installation by means of applying the related "configuration profile" from the "Profiles Wizard" in your Tiki. See:

http://doc.tiki.org/Profiles+Wizard

and

http://doc.tiki.org/Profiles+Wizard#Demo_of_Commonly_Used_Configurations

The one called "User Trackers"

They can be shown at registration time, all or some of the fields from that tracker, etc. The sample profile will get you easily on track with that in your site.

Cheers, and welcome to the Tiki Community! smile
