Custom Fields allow educators to manage and track district-specific information or milestones for students. Only district-level account managers can create custom fields. 

To create a custom field, go to the Settings section of your educator dashboard:

Next, select Custom Fields

From the Custom Fields page, click on the "+ Create New" button:

Now, you'll complete three steps to create the custom field. 

Step 1: Select where the field will show up in Overgrad, then click Next

Step 2: Select the field type based on what you want to measure or track. Field types include:

  • Single Select Dropdown
  • Multiselect Dropdown
  • Number
  • Date
  • Text Field

Step 3: Add information about the custom field; note that  you can determine if students can view or edit the field from their profile page in the "permissions" section:

Next, you'll format the field based on the type selected: dropdown options or numerical value 

Dropdown Options

To set your dropdown options; to add more than two options, click on the +Add Another link

Once you've set your dropdown options, click the Create button to save your custom field

Numerical Value

Select the numerical value type you would like to input into this custom field, then click the Create button to save your custom field.

Date or Text Field

Create a label and write a description, then click the Create button to save your custom field:

You're done! Your custom field will now show up in the Custom Fields section of your settings
