How do I add extra information to users' profiles?

Every Jiglu user gets a basic profile, which you can view by going to the Users section and selecting their name. This contains standard information such as when they joined, when they last logged on and what recent activities they carried out. However, you can also customise this profile with extra information that you want users to share by adding your own profile headings.

Go to System settings and choose the Profile headings option. Here you will find a list of all the headings under which users can enter information to be shown in their profile. To add a new heading select the New button.

There are a number of different styles of headings. The Multiple choice type lets users select a value from a number of choices, for example what title they have in a team. The Single line of text type is useful for things like phone numbers. The Rich text area type is good for longer descriptions and also allows external content to be embedded, for example a personal Google calendar. All the types are described in the help system.

You can make a heading mandatory, requiring new users to enter a value when their account is created or when they update their profile. Some information can be private, viewable only by users with the right to edit other users. Some may be set only by administrators, for example if you wanted only an administrator to set the job title for a user. For multiple choice and single line of text heading types you can also opt to have the information displayed on the user index page. This could be useful in highlighting administrators or other senior staff.

Individual collaboration spaces may also have their own member profiles. These show information about the member's activities in the space and can have their own specific profile headings.
