Custom Fields

NOTE: Company administrators, whose role includes the Customize Application privilege, typically create custom fields.

Any custom field that is created in an Asset record appears as the same custom field in the Vehicle record. A Vehicle record inherits a custom field in an Asset record. However, any custom field created in a Vehicle record does not automatically appear in the Asset record.

If you want to see the same custom field in both the Asset view and the Vehicle view, your company administrator can create the custom field in the Asset record, and make it visible to both the Asset view and the Vehicle view.

If you do not want to see the same custom field in both the Asset view and the Vehicle record, your company administrator can create the Asset specific custom field for the Asset, and make the custom field visible only in the Asset view.

For more information on custom fields, see About Custom Fields.

Additional Fields

Several fields do not appear on the Vehicle Detail page by default: Part #, Purchase Date, Purchase Price, Quantity, Ship Date, Install Date, Expiration Date, Notify Date, Product Category, and Contract.

Your company administrator can change the definitions of these fields as required. For more information on changing field definitions, see Creating and Editing Fields. To make the fields visible, your company administrator must include these fields in the page layout. For more information on making these fields visible on a page, see Customizing Static Page Layouts.
