Create Custom Fields and Configure Forms

Admins can create custom fields for the registration and download request forms, allowing you to gather important information from users during the registration process – like their department, title or how they’ll be using the asset.

Note: Custom fields and configurable registration and download request forms are available to customers with Enterprise subscription plans. If you would like to upgrade your subscription plan, please contact your customer success manager or email for additional information.

This article covers the following topics:

    • You can also alphabetize your picklist, click the box next to Sort Alphabetically. Any time you add a new value, you'll need to sort the list again to alphabetize it. If desired, after sorting you can reorder values to keep more common inputs at the top of your list.
