The Custom Field Settings Editor is used to dictate, on an account level, the respondent information that will be collected by Brillium. The collected information is used for purposes such as filtering data, running reports, and respondent authentication.
This indicates the ID of the account you are editing Custom Fields for.
To use a predefined set of Custom Fields for the account, choose the Predefined Set from this dropdown list to activate those settings. This is most commonly used when you are enabling AICC, SCORM, or Brillium Connect integration options.
Indicates the field you are either viewing in the grid or the field you are editing.
Choose a simple, understandable name for the Custom Field. This is the text that prompts respondents to enter data. Be sure the name is brief but clearly communicates what information you seek from respondents.
Use this field to either apply a validation to the Custom Field or create a type of list. If you choose a type of validation, it will be performed during login, so for example, if you specify “Numeric Only,” the system will only accept numbers from respondents for this field. You can create a list by selecting from any of those in the dropdown menu, such as a State or Country List, or you may create your own Custom List.
Choose whether the field is “Required” when respondents sign into an assessment, forcing them to provide a valid entry; “Not Required,” meaning that respondents may choose whether to enter a value or leave it blank; a “Displayed Field,” which will pass information from another website that respondents can see but cannot edit; or a “Hidden Field,” which will pass non-editable, invisible information from another website or application.
This determines in which letter case the custom field data will be stored when it is placed in the Brillium result database. For example, if you choose "lower case," all data in this field will be turned into lower case letters for storage so that "Me@Email.com" will become "firstname.lastname@example.org.”
To edit a Custom Field, click the paper and pen icon; to change the order of the fields, click the arrow keys; and to delete a field all together, click the red "x." Keep in mind that some fields cannot be deleted.
Extremely Important: Select the field that will act as the sole, unique identifier for respondents on all assessments under this account. This field defaults to email address, but you may wish to use an employee number or some other custom field that is unique per respondent. The Primary Key Field cannot be changed if results exist under this account.
