Custom attributes are additional details that can be associated with Users in the system, and used to organize or search for Users. xMatters groups custom attributes into custom attribute categories for easier management.
For example, you can create a custom attribute category called “Medical Training”, with available custom attribute choices of “CPR”, “Basic First Aid”, and “Advanced First Aid”. You can then assign the custom attributes to appropriately-trained personnel through each user’s Custom Attributes page.
