If you need to add custom fields for your employees, besides those that are already in the system, you can do this in the settings of the PeopleHR block - "Employee fields"

Edit fields
You can edit the existing fields in the employee profile. Change the name of groups, move already created fields into groups, hide or open them.

Create new groups and fields
You can create new groups about the employee's personal information, his interests, insurance information and other information blocks necessary for you.
When creating a new field, you need to do:
1. Select the group to which it will belong;
2. Select the field type, it can be:
rich text
multiple select
3. Name this field;
4. Write a "help" (there will be a description of what information needs to be filled in here, it will be written in small print under the field when filling in);
Let's look in detailed at the field types.
1. "Text" (in this field, the employee will have only one line available to fill in the information), there can be the address of your employees:
