Custom inputs are the additional fields that are customizable for you, as a client. With their help, you can add many types of data to the system, which will help you track your project easier.
Where can we add the Custom Inputs in ARCHDESK
In Archdesk, we can add custom inputs for e.g.:
Inside the FINANCIALS module > we can add custom inputs for Invoice, Invoice Item, Purchase Order, Purchase Order Item, Purchase Order Amendments
Inside the PROJECT module > we can add custom inputs for the Project, Budget, Quote, Quote Item, Tender, Tender Item, Participant Offer, Programme, Task, and other items like Stock, Assets, Employees, Individual Contact, Business Contact.
How the Custom Inputs are being added in ARCHDESK
The custom inputs are added by the Implementation Team inside the Settings of the system.
There will be certain pieces of information that you, as a client, will need to provide the team:
1. Name - the name of the input, which will be visible on the lists, dashboards, or item details.
2. Type - a type of input, which determines data to fill in. That could be Text Input, Number Input, Financial Input, Choice Input, File Input, Date Input, Data Time Input, or Link Input.
3. Hint - additional information, which will be visible for the user during filling the box.
How does that translate into the system?
It corresponds to data in the appropriate system's module.
