The Custom Input tool lets you control the data your customer provide, including:

  • What data customer provide
  • How to organize the data
  • How customers can enter data
  • What data is mandatory or optional


Step 1: Set Up a Workflow

When you add a Custom Input merit to your workflow, you can choose to:


Custom input Dashboard screen with data fields. Data fields are grouped by Main info (name), Document Type (NIN and VIN). Document types have subfields for document number.

Add an Input Field

When you add a field to your questionnaire you can specify a field system name for you internal purposes, as well as a field display name that faces your customers.

You can configure your fields to be one of four data types:

  • Alpha-numeric (letters and number)
  • Date picker (select a date from a pull-down calendar)
  • Checkbox (pick one or more options from a list)
  • Selector (pick one option from a list)

Field configuration screen with "Selector" chosen.

Add a Group

Create a group to help organize your customer's data. You can also use groups to nest data.

When you add a group to your questionnaire, you can add a system name for your internal system use, and a group display name that faces your customers. You can also add a thumbnail to the group to help customers differentiate groups.

After you have finished naming your group, you can add the following to your group:

Add a Selector with Sub-Input

The selector screen lets give the selection a system name for you internal system use

  • Name options
  • Add fields to the options

Step 2: Integrate

There are 2 ways you can use MetaMap's Custom Input:

  1. Direct Link — Send your users a link to enter their information on MetaMap's prebuilt UX
  2. MetaMap Button — Integrate our MetaMap Button SDK into your application to use our prebuilt UX

Direct Link

If you are not a developer, or you don't have the resources to integrate at this time, you can start using MetaMap's Custom Input product in minutes without any code with our Direct Link.

To implement this:

  1. Set up the workflow for Custom Input in the dashboard
  2. Get the Direct Link
  3. Send the Direct Link to your customers

Integrate our MetaMap Button via SDK

Use our SDK integration if you want to use MetaMap's verification tools but design your own Custom Input experience for your customers.

To implement this:

  1. Set up the workflow for Custom Input in the dashboard
  2. Install and implement an SDK framework

Custom Input will produce one of three results:

  • Verified
  • Rejected
  • Marked for manual review

There are two ways you can process verification results for Custom Input:

Dashboard Verification Results

In the Dashboard, visit the Verifications tab, and click on a Verification to review the results. These are the checks that indicate whether or not an individual has passed a Custom Input verification: Rejected/Review needed.
