Requesting and storing extra user information in user profiles/memberships

Recommended Posts

How customizable is the profile side of Squarespace? I'd like to integrate things like achievements on my online learning page, so little trophies attributed to users if they finish a module. On top of this, if I could get users to upload items for assessment to my attached Google workspace drive but have it retain the information for which user submitted it. Honestly, I just have no idea how this side of the website works. The profiles section so far just looks to be a list of email addresses which only exists in case I want to do an email campaign.

Happy to outsource this side of things to another provider if that's the easier solution and still affordable!

It isn't customizable at all. 

Even as a developer, you cannot curate content that is specific to a Member profile. The Squarespace stance on this is that only Squarespace-generated content, such as purchases and member areas should be stored within a profile. In their opinion, other information such as achievements should be stored in a third-party system. For example, you could embed one of the third party learning management systems and use this to store to track student progress.
