< Supporting Data < Custom Fields


Custom fields changes everything. Have you ever thought it would be wonderful if your pet sitting database could contain any data that you wanted, presented in just about any way you could imagine. Custom Fields makes this possible.


Create your own pages of information.

Custom fields enables you to create whole pages of new information, for example you could have a "boarding" page or a "pet sitting" page. Pages are accessed via your client record and not only can you create new pages but you can also modify our standard pages as well. This means that with the advent of custom fields, not only can you create new data, but you can also change the information that you already have.


Create sections within pages.

Sections are groups of data that appear on a page under a section heading, for example, "Emergency Contact". The Emergency Contact section would typically contain all fields associated with an emergency contact and can be moved around within a page for rapid development of your new data model.


Create fields within sections - as many as you like.

Fields typically contain a single piece of information such as "date of birth". Fields live in "sections" and can have a variety of formats and styles such as:


  • Simple Text

  • Multiline Text (notepad)

  • Multi-choice drop down

  • Multi-choice radio  

  • Phone

  • Email address

  • Postal address

  • Date

  • URL

  • Number etc.


Fields can be moved up and down the screen within sections and presented in any order you like.
