Patron Custom Data

Use this screen to set up patron custom data.

  • There are four Custom Data fields available.
  • You can make the custom data fields free text or add predefined options that staff can select in patron accounts.
  • The custom data fields you define on this screen appear in the Custom Data section in a patron's account:
    • In the WMS Circulation module, retrieve the patron's account, then click the Profile tab.
    • In the WMS Admin module, retrieve the patron's account.
  • You can include these data elements into ongoing patron file loads (tab-delimited and XML). For more information on patron loads, see Patron data migration (OCLC Community Center, login required).
