Two weeks ago, we replaced the profile editor with one which we hoped would be easier for your members to understand. At the time, we mentioned that part of our motivation was to provide a few additional improvements. Today we’re excited to present the first of those updates.
Several groups asked for the capability to collect information specific to their group on users’ profiles. Some wanted to record big sisters, initiation scroll numbers, or just general hobbies and interests. Alumni asked if we could include information about their spouses and/or children on the site. Since this data varies from group to group, we wanted to allow organizations to pick what sorts of additional questions would be added.
Group administrators now have an additional link on the admin screen for the site. Click on “Custom Profile Questions” to edit the questions asked of your members. If you’ve used the Respondable feature you’ll be right at home here, as the question types and formatting options are the same.
Once you’ve added additional questions, direct your users to their profile page at https://profile.gozuus.com/me and tell them to click on the menu link for your group’s site. (Send out an e-mail to your GoZuus list!) They’ll now see the additional questions and can respond to them there.
As members fill in this information, it will begin to appear on their individual profile pages. All members of your group will be able to look up this additional information about other users. (Don’t worry: if a member belongs to multiple groups, members of those other groups can’t see profile information that is specific to your organization.)
We’ll be adding options for private questions, as well as allowing administrators to export this data very soon. If you have ideas or questions, or want to vote to bump either of these ideas up on the priority list, please let us know in the comments!
