Can we add these Custom fields as Filters on the Directory Search page?

  • The Custom fields can be added to the filters on the Directory Search page.

  • If you have any such requirement email us at specifying which field(s) you want added.

Are there any limitations on the Custom fields?

  • We would recommend not creating Custom fields for Education details, Employment details, Home, and Office addresses, Phone numbers, Email IDs, or any other personal details.

  • Most of this information can be captured in the default fields that Almabase supports. Adding custom fields for these would lead to inconsistencies in data, and confusion. 

  • Also, there are additional functionalities built in for these default fields which can be leveraged to good effect if used correctly. These functionalities can not be transferred to the Custom Fields.
