Using Custom Fields

Cadzow 2000 Contact Manager allows the creation of Custom Fields, which are assigned to organisations. Custom Fields allow you to store additional information against customers and suppliers in a structured and searchable way.

For example, you may wish to track the months in which a customer is to be visited by a sales rep. The comment field for each Custom Field also allows extra information to be entered.

  1. Click the Contact Manager tab.

  2. Choose Miscellaneous Settings.

  3. Choose the Contact Manager II tab.

  4. Enable Under Organisations & People, track Custom Fields.

  5. Choose Close.
