Each User Defined field, once defined, will enable users to record data for a selected Customer/Prospect company, Contact or Product, either by entering an alphanumeric, numeric, date or yes/no value, or by selecting from a series of lookup menu values.

Note: User Defined Maintenance is only accessible/visible to users with a User Group privilege level of 7 or more.
