Admin > Config > Custom Student Fields
In this section you will be able to create customisable fields to be viewed at the bottom of the extended section of the student profile. They can be used as a means of recording additional information about a student and can be attributed to any descriptor.
To create a new field click the Add New Button. The field type allows you to add either a simple text box by pressing Text or a date by selecting Date. You then enter a Field Name and click Insert.
Once inserted you can select the Edit button to update a field or Delete to remove the entry.
The custom fields can then been found and edited at the bottom of the extended page in the student profile.
Press the Update button to save your notes.
You are able to produce a report showing information on your custom fields via Reporting>Reports>Student Custom Fields
Using the student custom field you can now record a salutation that you would like to use in attendance letters or when generating letters through the comms module. Label the custom field as 'Salutation' and then using the group Updater (Admin > Students > Group Updater) you can add the salutation to each student. This salutation will then be available to insert into letters generated through ScholarPack.
