Although Amplify™'s forms allow you to capture all required standard data, more often than not, you will find yourself wanting to capture additional data that is important to your business but is not recordable using Amplify™'s standard set of fields. That's when you can utilise Amplify™'s Custom Fields feature to define custom data capture fields. Custom fields can act like any inbuilt field and be displayed on add/edit forms, dashboards, ledger and table views.
Amplify™ allows you to configure a range of custom fields, including free text fields, larger free text areas, selectable fields, cascaded fields or linked select fields and URLs. To make a field visible in an end-user form, you must map it to the corresponding classification. For example, if you want to capture additional information about project risk, you can create a custom text field and map it to the 'Risk' classification. Once mapped, custom fields display on add and edit forms, table and ledger views, and appear as filter criterion on certain dashboards.
