Custom Fields Page

The page of the Computer window to view and enter data for available custom fields. Custom fields are useful for entering data you want to track that is not obtained through scanning (for example, asset tag numbers, warranty information, purchase date, etc.). To create custom fields, click Configure Custom Fields, (or click Options > Custom Fields, or press Ctrl+Comma) which will open the Custom Fields window. (Enterprise mode is required to view, create, and edit Custom Fields.)

Within the Custom Fields page of the Computer window, each custom field will be listed along with its value. To edit the value, click the Value field.

Custom Fields can also be imported directly from a .csv file. Click on Import Wizard and choose the import file to be used. For instructions, see Custom Fields Import Wizard. For importing instructions using the Command Line, see this knowledge base article.

NOTE: This page is available to computers even if Allow Scan has been disabled.
