Selecting a Template
The first step in creating a Staff Member record is to select a template.
You can skip the above step by selecting one of your templates as a default one: Staff List > Admin > Default Template.
- Switching templates after you fill out the form is not recommended since it may cause the loss of data.
- Deleting a field from the template will also delete all data associated with it.
- You can add new fields anytime.
- You can change the field order anytime.
Switching templates may cause the loss of data.
There are no default fields. All fields are a custom ones. When created, each of the fields has an ID and data type e.g., F1 – Paragraph Text.
When you switch a template and the new one will have F1 field set as a Hyperlink, you’re going to lose all data previously entered in this field.
On the other hand if your new template will have both field ids and data types identical as the old one, your data is safe.
Safe way to change a tempate.
Sometimes you may need to merge some records created under two different templates into a single one. The safe way to do that is to use Staff List CSV – an import-export extension for Staff List plugin. As long as data is compatible it should be an easy task.
