When you click the "Students" tab in Aspen, you get a predefined set of information columns. Sometimes it's not the information you want.
Fortunately, you can customize the columns (fields) to suite your needs. In addition, you can save different sets of information for different situations (e.g., contacts, logins, birthdays, etc.) Here's how:
1. Click the Field Set button and select "Manage Field Sets..."
2. Click the +New button.
3. Type a name for your field set.
4. Select the information you want and click Add>>. Repeat as necessary.
5. Click Save.
6. Your new field set will show up at the bottom of the list. Use the ^Up button to move it further up in the list for convenience.
NOTE: Whichever field set is at the top of your list will become the default field set when you sign into Aspen. To change it temporarily, just click the Field Set button and select the one you want. To set the default, click the field set button, click "Manage Field Sets...", select the field set you want as default, and use the ^Up button to move it to the very top of the list.
