Is it possible to change a field to be mandatory? We'd like to require people to enter their address in order be a member. Is this possible? I know that we can do that with new profile questions, but I'm wondering about those that are on the contact page.

Email address is already mandatory. In fact without one a user cannot log in at all. Some other system info is also required at signup, and as you pointed out you can also add anything else you want and make it required using your Profile Generator.

Is it possible to make their mailing address mandatory? But not in the profile generator where it can be viewed by others.

Hi Kattie,

No there is no way to make it mandatory without using the Profile Generator. A mailing address is a privacy issue for some classmates and something you may want to consider leaving optional.
