What are Custom Fields?

Index of Custom Fields

Custom Fields are user created fields specific to their contact records. Custom fields are included on every contact and can be used to filter contact search results.

When searching for contacts, custom fields can be used as search criteria. Custom fields are not shown on the contacts search screen by default, but can be seen by clicking the MORE button towards the bottom of the contacts search criteria section.

To view custom fields already created, select Custom Fields under the Home tab from the Navigation Bar.

Create Custom Fields

Click Add Custom Field to create new custom field.

Name the field, select a Field Type, and click Save to create new Custom Field.
