Custom Field Item

Overview

The Custom Field Item dataobject is within ADMIN > CONFIG.

It's purpose is to allow you to create Custom Purchaser/Participant Template Items that we don't have as a standard item e.g. Main Languages Spoken, or Relationship Type - these are just a couple that aren't listed in the Purchaser/Participant Template Items but you can create and add to yours.

When creating a Custom Field Item you can also choose what the display field type should be e.g. as a Checkbox, Dropdown, Radio, Text, TextArea.

In this section, we'll show you how to create a Custom Field Item and display it on your Billing Page.
