When you invite members to join your group they will be prompted to fill out basic information fields in order to accept the invitation. These fields are mostly optional with the exception of name and birth date, and include items like location, education, job background. If you'd like to ask for additional information beyond what is included on the basic form you can create "Custom fields".
Follow these instructions to add custom fields to your new member form:
- Click "Membership" on the main navigation menu
- Click Custom fields
- Click Add a custom field
- Label your field (ex: food allergies)
- Use the dropdown to select question type. If you select "Drop-down" or "Check boxes" you will be prompted to add answer options.
- Check "Members must fill this out before joining group" if the information is required, otherwise members will have the option to skip the field
- Click Save
- Click Save & Close
