Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

The Toolset user forms are designed to work with only the default WordPress user fields and the custom user fields added through the Types plugin.

To update the data in the extra user fields from third-party plugins like BuddyPress, you have a couple of options:

1. You can use the Toolset's user form for the initial registration and then once the user is logged-in, use the form from the BuddyPress, to collect extra fields data.


2. If you're comfortable with PHP code customizations, you can consult BuddyPress's support team or documentation to learn about how it stores the data in those extra fields and then use the generic fields and the "cred_save_data" hook, to store the collected form's data in the same way.
