Person Types are an agile way to customize which custom fields appear for which People. We've created them because we understand that you don't want the same custom fields for your lawyers and your founders.
To create and manage your Person Types, you need to go to Admin > Organization > Person Types.
Adding a new Person Type
To create a new Person Type, click the 'Add Person Type' button and enter the name of your new Type.
Adding a Custom Metadata Field
Within each Type you can add any number of relevant custom fields that will then only show up for People assigned that Type.
To add a custom field click the 'Add Custom Field' button and follow the on-screen dialog box.
Setting a Person's Type
A Person's Type is set when that Person is added into Fundstack. You'll be able to select from the options of all of your Person Types.
Updating Metadata to a Person
Once a Person's Type is set, you can add data to your custom fields by visiting the Person's page and editing the data inline.
Changing a Person's Type
Changing a person's type will alter the custom metrics visible on its profile. Any previously recorded metrics will be then hidden (although not deleted). If the person's type is changed back to the previous type, then the historic metrics will become visible again.
