Hi, I have extended the WordPress User entity on a site with custom fields that are created with the Pods plugin. I want to create a User Registration form with Formidable forms using those custom fields. Where do I map those fields in Formidable forms so that I can use them and build my Registration form?

I looked in the KB under integrations but can't find anything.

If Pods creates standard user meta fields, you map them with the [user meta] shortcode available in the User Registration Add-on. See this Knowledgebase article: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/user-registration/#kb-autopopulate-forms

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. The shortcode, as you pointed out, can be used to retrieve data from custom fields. The way to go about mapping the fields for storage was explained here:

First you build your field in the form builder. Then you go to the "Registered User" Form Action in the Action & Notification Settings for the form. There you can map your meta field name to the Field name you build in the form builder.
