Customers App allows you to add any custom fields that aren't provided on the creation page by default. You can load your creation page with new sections and fill them up with your own text fields, radio buttons, dropdowns, etc.

These are similar to the business attributes that support the user to customize the business with the custom fields. These attributes can be quickly and easily added for customization.

  • Click on the "More(...)" icon and select “Settings” located at the app header bar.
