In addition to the existing fields on the People Screen, you can also create and edit individual and family User-Defined Fields for your church database. In ChurchTrac, you can create an unlimited number of these custom fields.
A user-defined field is a custom field that you add to your church database. This allows you to store information on your church members that you need in order to do ministry.
Below are steps to create custom fields that appear in your church member profiles:
To create a new User-Defined Field, click on "User-Defined Fields" on the from the toolbar "Setup" option.
Select which type of field you want to create: individual (information only applies to the individual person) or family (information applies to the entire family).
Select your Field Type. Once the field type is set, it cannot be changed.
Your ChurchTrac account comes with a few user-defined fields. We added these to show an example of what you can create for your church.
You can remove them by going to the User-Defined screen in the People feature. Click each field you want to remove, then click the delete button in the bottom-right corner of the flyout menu (it looks like a trashcan).
As many as you need! You can create custom fields that appear in either the individual section of a person's profile, or in the family section.
