We added this feature to give you an easy way to store valid JSON data with a member. This makes it easier to link a member in Memberstack to an external document using an ID.

How to update/edit Metadata

The easiest way to update Metadata right now is via the back-end API or by clicking a member in the member's dashboard and selecting the Metadata tab.

Note: Metadata has a limit of 25 fields and a character limit of 250.

You cannot access metadata via the Front-end API, data attributes, or Zapier. If you need to update/store additional information on a member we recommend using custom fields or updating a member's JSON object via the Front-End API.

Zapier

It is not yet possible to update or access Metadata via Zapier.

Exporting Metadata

Metadata is included automatically when you download your member list.

Memberstack JS

It is not yet possible to update or access Metadata via the front-end API.

Why did we build this feature?

Previously, you would have to use custom fields (which were not valid JSON) or the Member JSON Object (which was not associated directly with a member) which lead to some weird issues.
