Create custom user attributes in the Admin console

You have long been able to add, edit, and view various details about a user in the Admin console, from basic information like name and email address to workplace-focused data like job title, manager, and department. Using the Admin SDK or Google Cloud Directory Sync tool, you could also add custom user attributes to that pre-defined list. Starting today, you can create and view these custom user attributes directly from the Admin console interface; there’s no need to employ the Admin SDK or GCDS.

For example, you can track the projects an employee is working on or store their hire date—whatever meets your organization’s needs. Moreover, you can determine what type of data should populate each field (e.g. text, numbers, dates, email addresses, etc.) and who can see that data—admins and the individual user only, or all users in your organization. You can then edit and view these details on the User Details page in the Admin console.
