Custom Player Fields are useful in the case that you need a specific field of information on a player, that is not already available in TeamGenius's pre-set import field options (see below).
There are two ways you can easily add custom player fields in TeamGenius.
The first way is by accessing the organization system menu by clicking on Custom Player Fields in the upper right-hand corner of any page in TeamGenius.
This brings you to the system settings dashboard with Custom Player Fields open.
You can now create, edit, or delete the Custom Player Fields simply by clicking on the green "Create Custom Field" button. You may also edit your already created custom fields, or use the trash can icon to delete.
Fill in Name, Help Text, and Optional Default Value and click on "Create."
The second way is available during the player import process. Once you have selected how you will import players (CSV file, SportEngine, or TeamSnap). Click on "+ Custom Field" in the lower right-hand corner, just above the "use these mappings" button OR in the mapping drop-down menu.
Fill in Name, Help Text, and Optional Default Value and click on "Save."
You will now have custom fields attached to every player profile. They can be populated during a player upload or through the player menu by editing each player individually.
