How do Attributes display?

When creating an attribute, you have several options on the Attribute Details page for the way you want it to display and collect information. With so many options, sometimes it can be easy to get confused as to what each one is. So we’ve made it easy for you with simple descriptions below!

Display Types

Text box

Single line allowing a user to input their own custom value

Combo box

Drop down selection, requiring you choose from a list of options. Once selected, the list of options is no longer displayed, unless you expand the list from the drop down arrow again

Able to display information to users, instead of collecting. Can be helpful when using conditional logic (ie: Staff Attribute 1-“Are you a U.S. citizen?” If the answer is no, then the Label attribute might say “In accordance with federal law, we cannot employ anyone who is not a U.S. citizen”)


Date Picker

Display an option for the the user to select a date. Date can be viewed in CT5, but not edited.
