Profile Types

One of the EasySocial unique features is Profile Types. With the different variation of profile types, you can determine user's accessibility on your site. Grab a cup of tea, because this might take a while to understand.

Profiles

EasySocial comes with a profile system which allows you to create multiple profile types for different users on the site. This feature will benefit site funtionality that run on multiple user types or subscription based. It is also allowing you to separate different user's workflows for a different division of users on your site.

Considering this scenario:

Well, you have two types of user registered on your site named Teachers and Students. You would require Teachers to put their field of teaching and you would need Student to enter their class enrollment. But, you don't actually need to ask field of teaching to a Student and vice versa when you want to request class enrollment from a Teachers. This is where different profiles would come in handy because it allows you to request information based on the profile type of the user is signed up with.
