A user property is any data point you ask your users to input when creating their profile in Optix or your white-labeled app. User properties can be private and only shared with administrators or public-facing and displayed on the user's profile in the Directory.

Some common uses of custom properties for internal use include, but are not limited to:

  • Tracking which users have been provided a physical key or access card

  • Deposit management

  • Emergency contact information

  • Referral tracking

  • Printer ID code and PIN number

Some common uses of public-facing custom properties include, but are not limited to:

  • LinkedIn profile link

  • Job title

  • Skills

  • Favorite book or podcast

In your dashboard, you can view all the default properties from Settings > User Settings > User properties.

If you’d like to collect additional data points that aren’t listed in the default menu, learn how to create a custom user property here.
