I am just beggining to experiment with Magento. One of the requirements for the project i will be begining soon is to use a ecommerce system for both online and in-store sales. In both cases, I need to store answers to specific questions for each users. We will be selling persecription shoes, and need to store information such as the doctors name, shoe size, medical condition, etc.

How difficult would it be to add in a new tab to store custom information for each user? This information does not neccesarily need to be updated by the customer, but we must be able to use it in the admin section..

So in addition to the users name, email, billing, and shipping addresses, I need a way to store this extra information and have it associated with the user. Is there something out there, or where can I begin to create this integration?

Thank you.
