Create a Profile Type

How to create a profile type

Profile types can be used to segment profiles into groups. Five default profiles types are automatically created. These are staff, speaker, exhibitor, sponsor and attendee.

Profile types can be used to enhance other elements and increase functionality. For example, sending a target push notifications for those attending the gala dinner about the change in start time, or using smart redirects to show and hide content depending on the type of attendee.

While profile types have many uses, they are also a compulsory field required when uploading profiles.
