Custom Fields Overview

Custom Fields are a great tool for capturing more data about your community and creating specified, customized data points about your audience on Honeycommb. Here's how to get started with Custom Fields: 

To create a custom field for your community, navigate to the "Custom Fields" tool in your control center and click "New Custom Fields"

When setting up your custom field, the following fields are required:

  • Name: What is this a custom field for?
  • Description: Describe your custom field
  • Field Type - See Our Article On Field Types
  • Dropdown Options (Only Used For Array, String, and Numbers in Comma Separated Values format) 
  • Hidden: Would you like users to have the ability to see this field on a profile or in-app?
  • Allow Blank: The value of user input is allowed to be left blank

Once you've completed all of these fields, the custom field will exist in your community! At any specific time, you can have a maximum of 10 custom fields.  

NOTE: Only 'string' custom field types show up on User Profiles at this time. More updates coming soon!

Using the sidebar hamburger menu, you can also drag or adjust the order of the custom fields (order will be applied when users onboard)

NOTE: Data capture for custom fields exists solely through your control center. The next update to custom fields will enable you to add data capture into the onboarding experience for your users.
