What are Organization-Wide Fields? 

Organization-Wide Fields (Org-Wide Fields) bring an update to capturing user information. Admins can import details or gather them during user onboarding. These details are then shared across all programs, eliminating repetitive data entry on the user side and creating multiple questions on the admin side.

Included in this section is a list of pre-set default fields accompanied by a DEFAULT tag, including essential user information such as First Name, Last Name, and Email. These default options are the core components of the standard user information that constitutes user profiles across the platform and is filled by all users when they join Together!

Note: These fields apply to both Mentors and Mentees and cannot be customized for just one type of participant or role.

Why It Matters:

  1. Simplified Data Handling: No more filling in the same info repeatedly. Organization-Wide Fields simplify onboarding and keep important insights at your fingertips.
  2. Efficiency Through Reuse: Say goodbye to repeatedly rewriting answers and filling out basic information again and again. User responses and data can be recycled, saving time and maintaining uniformity.
  3. Unified User Management: Creating better interactions and data control with one central set of user information.

How to access Organization-Wide Fields

You can start by logging in to your Together Account and selecting your program. From here, you can click on the Program Settings section. Once there, click on Questions & Algorithm, this is where you will find the two new drop-down menus: Organization-Wide Fields and Program-Specific Questions:
