How to Create Custom Fields

Custom fields allow you to capture and organize additional information specific to your deals and rooms in DealRoom. By creating custom fields, you can tailor the data collection process to meet your specific needs.

Note: Only admins can create custom fields.

Here's how you can create custom fields:
Go to the Settings tab from the left menu.
Select Custom Fields at the top.
Choose where you'd like to create the custom field by selecting it from the top menu. Options are: Deal, User, and Data Room.

To add a new field, click the blue Add field + button.

A form will appear at the bottom of the list of custom fields, allowing you to configure the details of the custom field.
Provide a Field Name and select the appropriate Field Type.
Field Name: Enter a descriptive name for the custom field. This name will be displayed on the deal card.
Field Type: Choose the appropriate type for the custom field. DealRoom offers various field types such as text, number, date, select, and multiselect.

Tip: If you need to change the type of field (i.e. from text to date), you have to create a new field and delete the existing one.

Once you have configured the custom field settings, click the blue Create button. The custom field will now appear in the list of custom fields on the Custom Fields page.
You can also reorder the list of custom fields by dragging and dropping them. It's recommended to prioritize the most important fields by placing them at the top for better visibility.
To edit a custom field, hover over it and click on the Edit option that appears on the right.

Congratulations! You have successfully created custom fields in DealRoom and added them to your deals or rooms. The custom fields will now capture and organize the additional information you need, giving you a high level view of each deal.
