Profile Editor – Customize Your Applicant’s Profile Registration Form

By September 1, 2017March 10th, 2023Applicant Portal, Knowledge Base


You can customize some questions of your applicant’s registration form.  Some customization will occur when you and a member of the GO Smart team set up your site.  Be sure to ask about the enhanced profile which allows your applicants to set themselves as an individual or organization and to respond to the optional organization profile questions.  If you report to the NEA, you can take advantage of a setting that asks for NEA-specific demographics, the DUNs, and the UEI on the registration page.

NOTE: If you have opted out of the enhanced profile, you can only modify settings for the district and web address fields.  All other fields will remain hidden, regardless of your setting on this page. If there are items that are not valuable for 100% of your applicants, consider making them not required, or hiding them and asking for that information in the appropriate application(s).

A field set to “Display and Required” will appear and be required for all registering applicants
A field set to “HIdden” will not appear for any registering applicants
Determine the optional fields that will appear to your registrants.
These optional settings will only apply if an applicant self-selects that they are registering as an Organization; if an applicant self-selects Individual or you have the Enhanced Profile turned off these items will not display, regardless of the setting.
