As the name suggests, you can customize the user(employee) form by creating new user fields in addition to the set of default fields available.
For example, if you want to add an additional field in the employee form to capture the citizenship of your employee, you can add a custom field to enter the same.
To add a custom field:
- Go to Settings
- Click on User>Fields
- Click on Add Custom Field
- Enter the Name of the field.
- Choose the required Field Type. Custom fields can of type number, text, date, location, multi-select, yes/no, or a dropdown.
- You also have the option of making custom fields mandatory
The new custom user field is saved now and will show up by default in the employee form. This field needs to be filled mandatorily before an employee's details can be added or updated.
Note: All the custom user fields which you have created will appear under "Other Details" in the employee form.
