By default, users must only enter a user ID when registering with Acrolinx. However, you can also configure Acrolinx to prompt users for additional information before they can start using the software. You can use this information to analyze checking statistics across different user categories such as department or role.
You use this feature with the reporting database. Custom user information is stored in your reporting database, in the table UserMetaDataEjb . You can run queries on your reporting database to aggregate checking statistics by categories that are important to your organization. For more information about running queries on your reporting database, see the Acrolinx Analytics User Guide .
You enable this feature by configuring the server to collect custom user information, and by configuring the template for the user information form. When custom user information is enabled, the user details page contains a new custom user information section. This section contains the custom user information and a link to the user information form for the user. If the information is incorrect, you can send the link to the user and ask them to update the form.
You find detailed information about usage scenarios and the configuration of custom information in the Custom User Information and Document Information article.
