User Meta Pro also has some extra shortcodes to customize this user table. To give a caption replace the previous shortcode with [[user-meta-user-list caption=”My User List”]] shortcode. Update it, now the table will look like this:

It has a filtering shortcode [[user-meta-user-list role=”author,subscriber”]].  Now if we want to keep caption and filter user together we have to use the shortcode like this: [[user-meta-user-list role=”subscriber” caption=”My User List”]].

You can add user meta shared fields (with field id) on these listing as columns. We have a shortcode [[user-meta-user-list fields=”8,9″]] that filters by their id. If you go to a particular form you can see shared fields has their own id. Use this code to filter that fields.
