Use custom fieldsLast updated on 09/14/2022

If you use specialized information in your workflows, gather and track the information in your records with custom fields. Custom fields show up in Search and can be included in reports. You can add custom fields to customer records, service location records, job, projects, purchase orders, equipment records, employee settings, and technician settings.

Things to know

  • After adding a custom field, you may have to refresh before you see the new custom field.

  • Normally, when you book a job, the job type, business unit, campaign, and priority fields auto-populate. However, if you add a custom field to your Call Booking workflow, you’ll need to manually set those job details when booking jobs.

  • After you have added and started using a custom field, you can filter search results with that field.

  • If you create a custom field for an installed equipment, you can associate the field to an equipment type. After selecting Installed Equipment, select Show on Specific Equipment Types. Then, use the dropdown to associate an equipment type with the custom field.

  • If you create a custom field for customer memberships, you can include the field on customer-facing membership estimates and invoices generated in the office. After selecting Customer Membership Record, select Display on Office Membership Estimates and Invoices.

Common use cases

  • Create a custom field that stores the year a house was built in the service location record to keep track of how old the homes you service are.

  • Use an age of equipment field in equipment or service location records to track the age of your customer's equipment so that you can be proactive about maintenance and replacement.

  • Add a preferred technician field to customer records to increase customer service and satisfaction.

  • Track permit numbers in jobs and projects where applicable.

  • Add the gender of the caller to customer records for marketing purposes.
