The current version, Linchpin User Profiles 2.2, is compatible with the following Confluence versions:
So we can answer your question as quickly as possible, please provide the following information:
Only administrators can add additional profile fields. Users can only choose which fields they fill in with content. Of course, mandatory fields set by the administrator must be filled out.
The administrator sets what information is displayed in the vCard and User Profile macros in the profile field editor.
The Linchpin User Profiles app comes with some useful macros. The Custom User List macro in combination with the Custom User Search macro lets you perform detailed searches. These macros can be integrated on any Confluence page, and can be used to search for people based on their profile field information.
User data can be imported via an XML file or by connecting to a central user directory. Synchronization of user data is possible in both directions. Depending on your configuration, the app can save user profile changes your central user directory.
The two apps offer similar essential functions, which overwrite each other if they are both used in the one Confluence instance.
