Adding more information about your team members to their profiles can give you a more comprehensive view of your team member portfolio. You can create custom fields for team members and group their information under relevant sections. 

For instance, you might create a section for contact details, such as email, phone number, and blood type, and a separate section for work-related information, such as certifications, skills, and region. You can set up these sections beforehand and fill in the fields as you create team member profiles. This way, you can keep all the necessary details organized and easily accessible.
