You can add more information to an employee profile using custom fields. Common examples of custom fields you can add to an employee profile include:
Yes/No responses - for example, the field might indicate if an employee has their own transport available
Additional contact details - for example, if you wanted to collect details for an emergency contact
Creating custom fields
Navigate to Settings > Platform > Customize native objects and select the object you want to create custom fields for. In this example, we'll choose Employee.
Set a name for the field
Set the field type. For example: Currency, Date, Long Text, Number, Text or Yes/No
Select permissions for who you want the field to be visible to, and who you want to be able to edit the field
Creating a document storage field
To create a place to upload a file, complete the fields under link existing objects as fields. For Object, select File.
Where to find custom fields on the employee profile
Custom fields added to the employee object appear via the Additional tab of the employee profile.
