How Do I Add Custom Attributes (End Users & Administrators)?

MyCompliance allows you to create up to 5 Custom Attributes for Email and Federated Users to add into the user's account.

Selecting End Users & Administrators provides the ability to add single select drop-down options as Custom Attributes to user accounts.

If the Data Validation Form has been enabled, the drop-down options, along with Question text, will be presented to end users at the start of every direct access course and will allow them to validate/update their information if required.

Custom Attributes will be mandatory fields that the Admin user must complete when creating a new user:
