Creating Custom Roster Fields

How-to

This article covers how to add custom fields that will be displayed on your member profiles. For administrators with sports organizations in TeamSnap, custom fields can be created at the team level or at the organization level. Team-level custom fields apply to that specific team's roster only, while organization-level custom fields apply across the organization.

Administrators have the option to create flexible custom fields to capture roster information that isn’t already baked into the system.

Once the information for those fields has been filled out, either by manual entry for each profile under Optional Player Details or completed via roster import, administrators can view the information for these fields on each roster profile or by pulling a roster export at the team level. Currently, the full roster list view cannot be customized to display custom fields.

Common Questions

Where can I view custom field information that has been filled out?

Organization-level custom field information can be viewed in the Members tab at the org-level, and in the team-level roster profiles for all plans except the Free plan, as well as in the Members tab export. Team-level custom fields are visible in each member's roster profile as well as the team roster export. Neither the Members tab or the Roster tab views can be customized to display custom fields in the roster or member list.
