Currently the member fields option does not allow a "repeating" field. Essentially we have simple datatypes for storing structured data, but some fields require a repeating field. For example:
A field such as "articles of note" requires a field to support 1 or more links to an article. Even better would be to be able to combine existing data types in a "row" together that can be repeated by the end user.
This way a member profile could have a potentially unlimited set of structures to store data about the member.
You could have:
- Events of interest
- Articles online
- A video library
Any "array" of details can be stored one or more times in a profile making a profile a much richer experience. Eventually WA profiles can act as landing pages for WA members, something that organizations may offer for their members, especially if members are organizations, rather than people.
Yes I think this would be useful In our case members could record their own professional development and accumulate data into this record that grows as member attends education sessions and which they only have access to and could print if required.

Good idea, thanks for sharing. I would say that we here, at Wild Apricot, have to re-thing fields customization logic - e..g create v2. But this is not something we're going to do soon, this year we're focusing on several very specific top voted items.
