Custom fields are a powerful tool in Redlist that allows users to capture specific information about their assets. These custom fields can be applied to all assets in a user's account, or they can be applied to specific asset types. To create custom fields:
Step 1: Click on "Assets" then select "Assets"
Step 2: Access the Asset Custom Fields Page
Choose one of the locations where custom fields can be accessed and created:
Location 1: Click on the ellipsis button and select "Manage Custom Fields"
Location 2: In the asset profile, search for and select an asset. Click on the "Edit" button, and then click on "Manage Custom Fields".
Step 3: Click on "Create Custom Field"
Step 4: Enter a name for the custom field
Step 5: Indicate whether or not the field is a required field
Step 6: Optional - Select Asset Types
If this custom field only needs to apply to specific asset type, select the "Show on assets with selected asset types" button. Then add asset types that this custom field will be added to.
Step 7: Choose a field type
If "dropdown" is selected, add dropdown options.
Note - the order that the options will be shown in the dropdown can be changed by clicking and dragging the tiles button to the desired position.
Step 8: Click "Create"
Creating custom fields for assets in Redlist allows users to capture specific information about their assets, tailored to their unique needs. By adding custom fields, users can track specific details that are not included in the default fields provided by Redlist.
