Online Course Custom Fields

At Thinkific, we’re constantly coming up with new ways to improve our platform and your user experience. This month, we’re excited to announce that our newest feature is Custom Fields!

What are custom fields?

Custom fields are additional fields you can request in your sign up form to collect unique information about your users.

Why would I want to create custom fields?

  • You are no longer limited to merely name and email. Instead of having knowledge of the most basic information, you can ask for anything, such as phone, company, school, city, Twitter handle, or blog feed.
  • You can have an increased level of organization of your user management system. By segmenting users based on a certain category, you can tailor marketing or communication specifically for them. For example, if you’re hosting a meet-up in your city, you can choose to email a segment of your users who are located near you.

How do custom fields work?

  1. Create a custom field.
  2. Wait for someone to fill our your field.
  3. Get ready to learn details about your students.

Is possible to have the custom fields integrated with the mail responder ? (Mailchimp)
So when somebody signup the additional fields such as company and phone are registered.


Hi Claudemir!

You bet – you can do this using Zapier to send the custom fields details over to Mailchimp or any other tool of your choice.
