Custom Fields Tab in AccessAlly

If you’re using the AccessAlly Managed Contacts option instead of connecting to a CRM system you’ll have a tab called Custom Fields.

What are Custom Fields?

Custom fields are used to store important information about your contacts. These can be created by AccessAlly or a site admin.

Custom fields created by AccessAlly when the plugin is installed. Examples include:

  3. Address
  4. Phone Number
  5. PayPal Email (for affiliates)

Create a New Custom Field

Click the “+ NEW FIELD” button. The new custom field will appear at the bottom of the page. Change the wording “Custom Field” by clicking on the pencil. This wording will become the name of the custom field.

Field Value Types

From the dropdown you can select the following custom field types:

  1. Plain text
  2. Select from a list of options
  3. Checkbox

Plain text

Add a descriptive name for the custom field and a default value if desired. This option is great for storing the number of points a member has.

Field Value Type

Select from a list of options

Create a custom field with multiple options presented in a dropdown for a user to select from. This option is great for use with profiles, directories, and the teams feature.

Options Custom Field

Checkbox

Add a checkbox option with default “unchecked” or “checked.” This option is great for asking if someone would like to opt-in for your marketing emails!

FAQs

Why is the custom field tab missing?

Can I apply a tag based on selection option in a dropdown?

It’s not possible to apply tags to the items in the dropdown at this time. We recommend using custom operation buttons on a thank you page after opt-in or purchase.

Can I run a custom operation based on the selection in the dropdown?

It’s not possible to run a custom operation based on dropdown choices at this time. We recommend using custom operation buttons on a thank you page after opt-in or purchase.
