custom roles and profile fields

  • 12 December 2022

we would like our users to fill out the "Your Role in the Community" profile field “Profil” when registering. This is defined as a mandatory field. Unfortunately, it is not adopted accordingly in the custom roles (user overview).
Is there a solution for this. We don't want to assign custom roles to every new user manually.




Thank you in advance

Hey @Cathleen ,

This is possible to do through our API documentation or Zapier. With the API documentation, this would require some coding work, if you’d like I can go into more details on how to set this up.

With Zapier, however, this should be more easy. You can actually set up a free account but I’m not entirely sure if it would cover this process.

So this is how you’d set this up with Zapier:

Step 1: Connect InSided with InSided


Step 2: Create a trigger when there’s a new registration

Step 3: Create paths where the user will select the profile field



Step 3 and 4: Define the path rules where the custom role will be assigned for the user



If this seems difficult, please let me know and I'll try to record a video to provide a better explanation. I'd also be happy to set up a video call to help with this!
