Can a custom field be added for each of a users membership level?
Situation – we are a state affiliated organization of a national organization. When users join at the national level, they automatically become a member of our organization. They can join the national organization with both a Institutional Membership (school, business, etc), and an Individual Membership (student, professional, retired). Each membership is assigned a Membership Number from the national Organization. We need to record that number with their specific membership level.
User – John Smith
Primary Membership – Institutional Membership: Higher Education
Primary Membership Number – 1305
Secondary Membership – Professional Membership
Secondary Membership Number – 1806
How can we save those membership numbers with the membership level, so that we will know which number relates to which membership level.September 10, 2018 at 11:01 am #78507adminKeymaster
Custom fields for members are handled using the following addon:
You can create forms for the different membership levels. That will allow you to have different set of fields that are shown to the members based on their membership level. Is that something that will work?September 11, 2018 at 3:48 am #78508
That looks like it would work. So if a member has stacked membership, there can be a custom field for each membership level they have, and not just at the user level/primary membership level only?September 11, 2018 at 4:25 am #78509adminKeymaster
Each member can have only one set of fields. So in the case of multiple levels feature, it will use the main level to determine which set of fields to show.
Any field value go against a profile. So there can always be one set of fields the member can see. Otherwise it doesn’t work.
The way to do it is to have ONE textarea field where you record all of their “Membership numbers”. Or you can have multiple text fields thats says something like “Your Primary Membership Number”. That field will capture the main membership number. Then there can be another text field that says something like your “Your Secondary Membership Number” and so on.September 11, 2018 at 5:30 am #78510
Okay, thanks for you help. I think I will just create my own ‘addon’ that will store the membership number in a separate table and get the data using the code from WP eMember Miscellaneous Tweaks
