Add Custom Fields To Items

When you add inventory items, you have to fill out a number of fields, such as name, category, supplier, etc.

You may find it useful to add some custom fields to your items though.  For instance, if you own a bookstore, you may want to add an Author field.

Here’s how to do that.  Go to the Store Config.  Scroll down to the bottom to Custom Field 1-10.

Enter “Author” into “Custom Field 1”.

Custom Author Field

Then click the blue “Submit” button.

Now go to Items, and choose any item.  Click the “edit” link.

This will launch the “Update Item” form.  Scroll down to the bottom, and you will see your new “Author” field.

Author Field Value

By default, there is a value of 0.  You can change this to whatever value you want.  When you’re satisfied, click the blue “Submit” button, and the author will be saved.

Note: the system restricts these custom fields to 25 characters or less.  If you try to enter more than 25 characters into one of these fields, the system will truncate it.
