Custom Fields (cloud)

Custom fields may be created to obtain additional information from a customer during check-in. These fields are attached to the service request and can be viewed in request history. Custom fields may also be created and attached to the customer record to save additional information at the customer record level. Information entered in the customer record will remain with that customer until it is changed or deleted by a user. 

Custom fields can be configured to appear in the kiosk, Web client, or both.

Please note that custom fields created at the Service Request level are not viewable in a customer record. To save custom data at the customer record level, you should create a  Customer custom field type.
