Database field settings

You can change field settings for new and existing fields. Field settings appear when you click a field within the list of common or membership fields.

The following settings are available for one or more field types:

Field label

Field types: All

The name used to identify the field, or the label for the section divider. The field label must be unique among your database fields, and is not case sensitive.

Required field

Field types: All except section divider

Controls whether the field has to be filled out before the form can be submitted. For all self-service online forms, (member application, email subscription, donation, and event registration), the Email field is always a required field.

For administrator access only

Field types: All common fields except section divider

Identifies this as an internal field that can only be seen or edited by an administrator. 

Items

Field types: Multiple choice, radio buttons, dropdown

Choose the options to be displayed. 

Applications

Field types: Extra charge membership fields

Indicates whether to include in new membership application forms. If enabled, you can also control whether the cost should be prorated over a partial period of time.

Renewals

Field types: Extra charge membership fields

Indicates whether to include in the membership renewal form. If enabled, you can also control whether members can change their original selection when renewing.

Member access

Field types: All membership fields except section divider

Controls whether the member is allowed to view or modify their own values for this field. The following choices are available:

  • Edit in own profile
    Members can edit the field by logging into their account and editing their private member profiles.
  • Edit in application
    Members can only edit the field when filling in the application form.
  • View only
    Members can view the contents of the field but only an administrator can change it.
  • No access
    Administrator-only field that is hidden from members and the public.

Others access

Field types: All except section divider

Controls whether other members or public visitors can view the contents of this field. The choice you make is used as the default privacy setting that appears for the field on the Member privacy settings screen, and on the Privacy tab of individual contact records and private member profiles. 

From the Privacy tab on their member profiles, members (and logged in contacts) can change the default privacy settings for individual fields, unless you have locked them down on the Member privacy settings screen. 

From the Member privacy settings screen, you can change the default privacy settings for individual fields and optionally, force those changes onto individual contact records. 

Setting this to No access will not stop members from editing their own values for this field, and will not stop the field from appearing in the membership application form.
