User profile questions allow you to add attributes to people's profiles, that can be used in a variety of ways on the Pathable app, including setting permissions, message segmentation, and attendee-facing networking filters.

To make user profile questions through the Dashboard:

  • Click People.
  • Click Profile Questions.
  • The preset fields you see are customizable. Click on the field to rename it.

Note: You can click Add New to add a new field type. You may choose between the following inputs, depending on the type of information you want to collect:

  • String: any typeable characters -- use when you expect a lot of unique values
  • Phone Number: telephone numbers
  • Number: a numerical value
  • Rich Text: when you anticipate needing an HTML-capable field
  • Labels: selected from a preset list of labels that you make
  • Links: URLs, including video URLs.  If you use a Links Question for videos, the video will embed, rather than displaying a link.
