Custom Fields

You can switch between Basic and Advanced modes from the tabs below.

This feature provides creating custom fields for customers on account and address pages. These fields can be categorized by the Location, it means the Account or Address page, and Customer Groups. In a word, when we create a new custom field we can set it for only 1 (one) group or a few groups or all of them.

These Actions can be performed on one, or more Custom Fields, at one time, if those Custom Fields have been previously selected. Bulk Actions are available, when appropriate, as choices in the Actions pulldown box, above each Table. There is only one Bulk Action allowed, the **Delete**.
