    What custom fields did you add to your Employee Profile?

    Gary Pearl

      I'm interested in benchmarking with others to see what you've added as custom fields to your Employee Profile.  Please share, and also provide rationale for items which might not be intuitively obvious.  Appreciate learning from your experiences

          Hi Gary,

           

          we just started with Jive SBS and still 'evolve' in that respect. However, we addede a few fields and disabled others.

           

          Added:

          • language - we have many people speaking a second or third language working for the company and we have customers all over the world. Hence having quick and easy access to somebody who can talk to a customer in his native language or translate a document is important for us.
          • location - this is not a single field but divided into 'building' and 'region' helping staff to identify where on the campus someone actually is or in which timezone. We have offices in all continents.
          • phone numbers - still experimenting with this to cover extensions, DDIs, and multiple mobile numbers

           

          Disabled:

          • home address and home phone - for privacy reasons

           

          cheers

          Frank
