What is a Custom Field?


If you wish to collect and store additional information from your customers, you can add custom fields. For example, if you're running a weight loss program, you may want to collect a customer's current and target weight. When members enter their information into custom fields it will optionally show up on the member's My Account page and in the member details area which you can access from the Manage Members screen. Read this article to learn more about viewing a member's details.


Managing Custom Fields


In the MemberMouse menu go to Checkout Settings and then click on the Custom Fields tab. Here you will be able to quickly see the details associated with each custom field you have created. Consult the Custom Field Columns table below to learn more.
