Getting custom user meta data to show up in dashboard User database

  1. Hi, I've set up a custom registration and so far just about everything works beautifully, especially now that I can couple the registration with the new user approve/deny plug in. I have just finished creating a beauty supply ecommerce site where you have to be a member to even shop... and I'm curious to see if the special license numbers that I added into the registration field can be added to the user database within the dashboard, so my client always has that on file. They show up in the admin email that is sent, so my client can add the information to Quickbooks from there, but I want to cover all of my bases and make sure that the number is always registered in the database if at all possible. Do I have to make some additions to the theme's functions.php file? I'm currently using Canvas from WooThemes with the Canvas Commerce child theme.

  2. How did you add the special license number to the registration field? Can you add it as a hidden field to the form so it is always part of the entry?

    How is it getting the the admin email? Is this the email from Gravity Forms, or some other admin email? Thank you.

  3. Hi, the admin gets the email from Gravity forms, it looks like. I set up the notifications to show all fields, so it lays everything out nice for him in a table, which will be good for him to pretty much just copy and paste the information into his Quickbooks.

    For the custom fields, I just added in single line text boxes that have unlimited alphanumeric characters allowed. There's not really a format to follow to program in some kind of jQuery checker to make sure the license is at least in the right format. When I was in the User registration part, I tried to set up the information as an "Add Custom", with the form Label being the custom label. Nothing showed up, but I did notice a phone number appear in the Bio of the user, so I tried to change it all to Biographical information but that's not showing up either.

    Here is the link to my registration page:

    The registration form also works alongside New User Approve/Deny plug in, so that way my client can filter out bad license numbers before the new user can even shop. That sends the user an email when they're approved with a link to the wp-login.php page, but nothing gets sent to the admin from this plug in.

    Also, can you tell me if there's a way to have the address information from Gravity Forms populate the address information within WooCommerce?
