In this article, you will learn how to keep track of custom field data in Workiz.
Workiz was designed to fit the needs of most service businesses, but you may find that your organization needs a bit more customization when it comes to creating jobs and adding clients. You can accomplish this by creating custom fields so that you can add all the extra information you’ll ever need for a job or client.
You can create custom fields for just about anything, including before and after photos, job duration, vehicle information, or location type.
Keeping track of custom field data is also fairly simple thanks to custom reports.
Tip: In order to create a custom report, you will first need to enable the custom reports add-on from the Marketplace.
