Info Tab Fields
Except for the fields customizable in Preferences, the only customizable field label names and ability to remove the fields is on the 3 codes tabs. See below.
The Ethnicity and Racial Group field labels must remain on the Volunteer Info tab, but some Canadians delete the values and ignore those fields. You can clear the values in Reference Codes. Reference Codes | Volunteer Codes | Ethnic Codes. Click Delete until all the values are cleared.
Reference Codes | Volunteer Codes | Racial Groups. Click Delete until all the values are cleared.
Alternatively, you can edit or add values to those two fields to customize for your own tracking purposes.
Custom Code Fields
The Reporter is quite flexible, with custom code fields for Volunteers, Stations and Jobs. Each of those sections has a Codes tab which provides plenty of fully customizable fields, including naming the fields, setting the values for the drop-down codes, rearranging the dates, number, and text fields to align with codes fields, or even turning off unused codes. That customization is done from the Reference Codes menu up top.
