What is a custom field?
Gathery has a rich collection of member record fields (first name, last name,
street address, phone, cell, pager, fax, email, personal web, ..etc.) for most
general purpose organization usage. However, no matter how many fields
Gathery can provide, each organization could still needs more record fields
specific to that organization. For this purpose, Gathery offers 5 more
fields defined by each organization. You, as the Manager, define the
meanings of these fields. Also you have control on who is going to be able
to access each of these fields:
Each field can be one of the 3 types: date, number, or text.
In the future, Gathery will provide more reporting capabilities based on
the field type.
- for management use only; the field will not be seen by ordinary members.
- can be edited by each member; other members cannot see this field
- show to all members; this field is public, like "last name", can be updated
by each member and seen by all members.
The Manager can list the custom fields of all members (sub-service in
service: "Manager list members").
The Manager can also maintain these custom fields easily by using the
service "upload/download DB to/from text file".
