Custom fields are available to our Complete, Concierge, and Select customers. If you don’t have access to this feature, admins can upgrade at anytime.
You can use custom fields to label or categorize employees and/or collect personal information from them. If your employee is already onboarded they won’t be notified to fill out a field.
Please remember to tell your employees if you'd like them to fill out a custom field. At this time, you can not make a custom question required and Gusto does not send notifications to employees reminding them to complete the question(s).
Common uses for custom fields:
Run a report on custom fields by selecting the "Custom fields" report or by adding the custom field as a "Column" in the custom employee report builder.
