How do we add a Custom Field?

You can create a Custom Field either manually through the administration portal, or as you create the question when adding a new question.
Types of Fields
To add a custom field in the Desktop application:
1. Go to 'Administrator'
2. In the Admin Panel, go to the 'Fields' tab
3. Then you can right click any field category header to add a field under that section:
4. When creating a field, you can specify it's name, description, Data Type, Default Vale, Data Format(of that Data Type), and whether it's Required, Visible, or has to be a Unique value for each user.
Prior to the Question Manager, a new question requires a custom field to be created beforehand to reference on the Kiosk.
When adding the field, you can chose it's Data Type, and the format of that Data Type. The other options include:
Unique: Whether more than one person can have the same value in this field
Required: Whether a user has to fill out this field to update their status(status field) or edit their user info/create their user(contact field)
Visible: Whether users will be able to see it in the standard view and on their user page.
Creating a Custom Field in The Question Manager
In the Question Manager, a custom field can be create by pressing the + sign next the field when creating or editing a question
Also, you could create Custom Options as a list or button options in response to your new question if it is the custom options type.
