Create custom fields

  • Updated
ODP Lite is not available to new customers as of May 1, 2024.

You can create custom fields to capture data that is not already provided in our reserved list for each object. However, the new fields only capture data after you create them.

When uploading data for custom fields, you must use the field's tag name. If you are not sure what the tag name is, go to Account Settings > Objects & Fields.

You can check your current Objects & Fields here.
