Rokhi created the topic: HOw to update user profile from application form

Hi
I have an application form that pulls data from the user profile which has been operating well for some time, but it occurs to me that I should be updating the profile data from the application as people enter it a) for the first time, and b) ongoing users.

I'm not sure what the best way would be to tackle this. Should I be using contentbuilder or just writing the data update in the submit piece?
If CB, I have looked at contentbuilder and it seems quite feature rich, but I can't quite get a handle on how to integrate it with my existing form. I made a view and published it, then created the menu item using create, but it would not show up on the site.
But even if I get that operating, I still can't quite see how that would update the profile data in the user profile table with only having linked the form to a CB view.

If manually via submit is the best way to do it, is there an example of the code required that I could use?

I guess I'm thinking it would be best to gather the form info in the submit piece and update the profile with it: testing for and adding missing fields as required.
