Thanks David.

Exactly what I'm looking for!

A follow-up if I might:  I'm running version 5.2 - and can't seem to find a reference to custom user attributes in the documentation.  Was the feature added i v.6?  (Might be time to upgrade.)

Hi Miles,

Look at the custom list attributes : these allow to define additional attributes for users, such as where they come from, age, anything. You can define them as mandatory or optional. When people subscribe through the web interface, they will be prompted with an additional form requesting them to fill these attributes.

In addition, said attributes can be provisionned from LDAP or SQL.

All the details here:

Hi Folks,

Does anybody know of an extension to Sympa, or some other kind of tool, for collecting information about folks when they join a list?  Something like the way Facebook groups allow for asking screening questions when somebody tries to join a private group.

I'm trying to set up a private discussion list, pre-screen folks who apply to participate, and maybe populate a member directory with profile information in the process.

Anybody seen something like that?
