Adding Multiple Custom Fields for Projects

  

There’s no limit to the number of custom fields you can have. If you’ve already set up at least one custom field, read on to learn how to add more.

Here’s how to add more custom fields:

  1. Click My Company on the right-side of the navigation bar, and then click Project List. This will take you to your list of projects.

  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the project window and click on the gray Add/Edit Custom Fields button to add more custom fields.
  4. Click on the option to Add New Field.

  5. Type the label of this new field into the text box. In the example below, our new field is called “Lead Editor.”

  8. Click the red Save Changes button on the bottom-right of your screen to save your work.
