Hello Club offers a lot of flexibility in terms of what member information is captured. There are only three fields which are always captured and always required. These are:

  • First name

  • Last name

  • Email address

In addition, there are some default fields for which you can decide if these should be captured or not, and if so, whether they are required or optional fields:

If you don't use these fields at all, you can disable them altogether so they stay out of your way completely.

And if you need to capture any additional information from your members, you can always create some custom fields.

How to manage default fields

To manage default fields:

  1. Go to the Settings module

  2. Open the Members card and select Default fields

  3. Toggle the field settings as needed

Fields that you’ve marked as enabled will always show up for administrators and when exporting member data.

Fields that you’ve marked as visible will also show up for your members, and fields that have been marked required will need to be filled out by your members.

Frequently asked questions

What happens when I disable a field?

Disabled fields will not be visible to administrators or members alike. You can disable fields that you don’t use and never plan on using, so they stay out of your way.

What happens when I make a field not visible?

Fields that are not visible can still be seen and edited by administrators, but your members will not be able to see and/or fill out these fields.
