Create a List Attribute

Use the List attribute if the values you need to create are shared by users (for example, job roles, office locations, or departments). You can add unlimited values to the List attribute.

  1. On the Admin menu, click USERS > User Attributes. The User Attributes page displays.
  2. On the User Attributes page, click New Attribute. The Create User Attribute page displays.
  3. Enter a Name for the attribute.
    • This is a required field and must be unique within an organization.
    • The field limit is 255 characters.
  4. Select List.
  5. If you are using self registration and want this attribute to display in a user's browser language, select the language and specify the Display Label for that language. If you do not specify a Display label in a user's language, self registration displays the attribute in English.
  6. Optionally, select Authorize direct creation of new values.
    • Selected: Allow other admins to create new values for an attribute when they create a new user or edit an existing user. If selected, you do not need to specify an attribute value. This setting is helpful when bulk uploading users with new values, or for Compliance admins who want to send emails to users' supervisors.
    • Not selected: Do not allow other admins to create new values for an attribute when they create a new user or edit an existing user. Admins can only select from predefined values when assigning an attribute to a user. If this is not selected, you must specify at least one value for the attribute.
  7. Optionally, select Allow multiple values to be selected for this attribute. If you save a list attribute with this feature selected, you can't unselect it.
    • Selected: Allows a user to have more than one value associated to this attribute. There is no limit to the number of values you can associate to one user.
    • Not selected: Default setting. User can only have one value associated with the attribute.
  8. Create one or more values for the attribute:
    1. Enter a name for the value.
    2. Click Add Value or press Enter. The value displays in the attribute list.
    3. Repeat as necessary.
  9. Select Create.
