In the Congressus Manager you can manage the settings of the different categories for each status at 'Settings > Member statuses'. For each status you can decide which fields are shown, which can be edited and which ones are mandatory. This impacts both the Congresssus Manager and the website(s) of the association.

Tips & tricks for using field-settings
Set up one member status entirely to your liking, then copy the settings for the member statuses that function the same way. You can do this by going to the tab 'General' for the specific member status you want to have the copied settings
Set up the field-settings for each member status. This way you have the most control over all the information available. Otherwise you can use the standard settings
Check your changes by creating a test member. Change the member status so that you can see what the member with that particular member status can see. This way you avoid making mistakes!
