Add custom registration fields to the account creation page

By default, when registering with your portal, a portal user is prompted for their first and last name, an email, and a password. You can add up to three additional custom registration fields to the Create Account form to capture additional details. For example, you might want to capture the company name.

When a portal user provides data for a custom registration field, the content is displayed in the Users details. If you disable or remove a custom registration field, the custom information moves to the Legacy Data column in the Users list. See Manage user accounts.
