Association Fields are a customizable profile field that 360Alumni includes within it's user data model. We encourage clients to use the association fields to capture the characteristic by which their alumni best identify with their organization. [For higher education this is often the degree and/or focus obtained, i.e. Bachelor of Science, Finance. For private schools, non profits, and other organizations this may be program type, school attended, member type, etc.]
When choosing the data point(s) to be captured using association fields 1 and 2; keep the below in mind.
