Note: The custom fields screens are user-defined terminology screens. Your firm may refer to them by different names. You can view the default names for user-defined items by choosing Help > Enable Default Terminology (or by pressing CTRL+Shift+H).

Custom fields enable you to track information in Practice CS that is not tracked in the application’s default configuration. You can create an unlimited number of custom fields for offices, staff, activities, clients, engagements, projects, tasks, time & expense entries, and invoices. You can also create custom fields for schedule items such as notes, meetings, phone calls, messages, to do items, CPE courses, and benefits.

Custom fields of the List and Staff List types are also available as grouping options during reporting.

Example Example: Your firm may want to include information about clients’ credit ratings with each client record. Because Practice CS does not provide its own credit rating field, you can set up your own custom field for this information.

When setting up a custom field, you first enter a description for the field that will appear in Practice CS (up to 30 characters), and then you can choose from six different field types:

Further customization is required for Text and List fields. See Setting up custom fields for more information on customizing fields.
