Creating Other Record Fields

Other record fields are used for records that do not have custom forms associated with them. You can add other record fields to these record types to gather information specific to your business needs.

Other record fields can be added to the following record types:

To create or modify other record fields:

  1. Go to Customization > Lists, Records, & Fields > Other Custom Fields.

  2. On the Other Record Fields page, each custom field is listed, with columns providing detailed information about the field and which records the field has been applied to.

  3. Choose an option:

    • To edit an existing record field, click the field name in the Description column and then modify the field definition as needed.

    • To add a new custom record field, click New.

    For more information, see Creating a Custom Field.

  4. Complete fields on the Other Record Field page as needed, and then click Save.

You can use SuiteCloud Development Framework (SDF) to manage custom other record fields as part of file-based customization projects. For information about SDF, see SuiteCloud Development Framework Overview. You can use the Copy to Account feature to copy an individual custom other record field to another of your accounts. Each custom other record field page has a clickable Copy to Account option in the upper right corner. For information about Copy to Account, see Copy to Account Overview.
