You can collect pretty much any piece of data you want from your members. We offer a variety of field types to help you collect that data and make it easy to utilize and send messages. Here are the types of fields you can have:
- Email address
- Phone Number
- Job Title
How should you use these fields? Here are a few examples to get you inspired:
Text fields are great for capturing basic data such as Company Name, Job Title, Referral Name
Radio fields are great for choosing only one option such as Sector, Region or Company Size
File Upload fields can be used to collect logos, resumes, marketing materials, or writing samples
Number fields are used for capturing numerical data such as revenue earned, days in a current status, social media followers
URL fields can be used to collect the member's website or portfolio links
Select drop down fields can be used for choosing single options, such as Industry Type, Region, or Revenue Ranges
Location fields are auto-filled by Google Maps and are useful for collecting address information (for sending swag for example). Note: when using the Location field to capture address data, make sure to add a text field to collect Suite or Apartment numbers (Google is unable to auto-fill this data).
Date fields are useful for noting sign up dates, payment dates, or for event tracking
Text Area fields are most often used for collecting member bios and freeform responses such as "Why do you want to be a member in this group" or "How do you want to be involved" etc.
