With custom fields, you can have your own set of fields to standardise and regulate data captured for a job, of any job type, thereby restricting the values to be entered only in a specific format.
A sample screen of how the custom fields will be displayed on a Job profile is shown below:
NOTE: If a custom field is removed from your Loc8 system, the data captured against the job that uses it will remain intact.
STEP 1 Under Settings -> Job Configuration, switch to the CUSTOM FIELDS tab.
STEP 2 Name the custom field group and define the fields that it will contain.
Then, associate the new custom fields to the Job Type.
There are a wide range of field types available to choose from when creating custom fields to ensure the data is stored reliably.
The complete set of available field types are shown using examples below:
All of the field types are quite self-explanatory, they expect the same input as indicated by their Type name.
The List type is no different, only that it has an additional step to add the options that should appear in the dropdown list (as shown in the next section).
Creating a List Type Custom Field
STEP 1 Select List type from the available custom field types in the dropdown list and name the custom field. You can also ensure the custom field is filled out for sure by making it mandatory.
STEP 2 Enter the dropdown options that the List type custom field will display on the job profile inspector.
You have completed creating a collection of custom fields under the custom field groups and applied them to the required Job Types.
Now, when any user creates a new job of the job type associated with the custom fields, they will see the them on the job profile.
