By default, the member portal signup comes with some pre-built fields like
- Email Address
- Company Name
- Website URL
- Phone Number
- Terms and Conditions (if activated)
- Credit Card Form (if activated)
Sometimes these fields aren’t enough and you’d need to collect more information about your members upon signup. That’s why OfficeRnD allows you to add more form fields for this purpose.
This article will guide you through the process of customizing the signup form of the OfficeRnD members portal. It will contain the following steps:
- Create custom property Mobile for members only
- Add form field for the Mobile property
Add Custom Properties
You can add custom properties for either companies or members. By default, only admins can see the custom properties. You can manage custom properties from Settings / Custom Properties
We’d like to add a property called “Mobile” and tell OfficeRnD that it applies only to members.
- Click “Add property“
- Type “Mobile” for Name
- Choose “Members Public” for Applies to
- Click “Add“
Note: The property's privacy should be set to "Members Public" in order to be visible on the signup form.
This will add this custom property to all members of the system. If you open some member profile you will notice it has been added.
So far we’ve created a custom property. The next step is to add it to the signup form.
Add Custom Property to the Signup Form
To add our new custom property to the signup form you should navigate to Settings / Member Apps / Public Pages and check the "Signup Page" option to enable the Signup page for your portal. The “Forms Fields” section will appear right below the Signup Page checkbox.
- Click “Add Field“
- Pick “Mobile” for the Property field
- Type “Mobile Phone Number” in the Title field
- Check the Required checkbox to make the property required upon signup
- Click “Add“
This will add the form property to the list.
If you open the portal signup page now, you will see that the new property has been added and members will be required to fill it in.
