Customize user profile fields

When you customize user profile fields, you can add basic fields, add other predefined fields, create custom fields, and remove fields. When you modify fields, you can change any of its attributes; you can also designate a field as required, or add a comment describing a field.

The information in the user profile fields is used to create the downloadable Custom Fields User Report. This report displays the three mandatory fields (first name, last name, and e‑mail) and the next 8 fields listed under the mandatory fields in the Customize User Profile screen. Use the Shift Up and Shift Down buttons to move fields into the correct position so they will or will not display in the Custom Fields User Report.

Convert guests to full Connect Enterprise users or full users to guests

You can convert guests to full Connect Enterprise users or full users to guests. This is helpful if, for example, you held a Connect Event in which many guests registered that you would now like to turn into full users.

The distinction between guests and full users can be important because only full users, not guests, can log into the Connect Enterprise administration site. Full users also appear on enrollment and permission lists.

Note: Previously in Connect Enterprise, guests could be added by simply entering an e‑mail address. Now, guests must enter a first name, last name, and e‑mail address. Also, when importing a list of guests (usually using a CSV file), a first name, last name, and e‑mail address must now be included.
  1. Select the Administration tab in Connect Enterprise Manager.
  2. Select Users and Groups.
  3. Click Manage Guests.
  4. In the Current Guests list select a guest or in the Current Users list select a user.
  5. Click Convert to User or Convert to Guest.

You can convert guests to full Connect Enterprise users or convert users to guests.
