Creating User-Defined Customer Fields

This section lists the pages used to create user-defined customer fields.

Establish user-defined fields if you have requirements that are beyond the delivered options for defining customer attributes. Each user-defined page contains fields of various sizes and types: 1 to 30 characters that are alphanumeric, numeric with decimal places, or numeric without decimal formats. Use PeopleSoft Application Designer to modify field names on the page and to provide the appropriate code changes for the system to process these fields.

When establishing user-defined customer fields, determine the usage requirements, and then select the appropriate field on one of the User Defined Info pages for modification. Modify the field name using PeopleSoft Application Designer in PeopleTools, and then make necessary code changes.
