    1. Select the system object from the Object drop-down field. This is where the custom view button will display for end users.
    2. Enter text into the Caption field. This text will be the label next to the custom view button.

  5. Select Save Custom Attribute.

Refer to the section Add a custom attribute set for more information on adding custom attributes to a custom attribute set.

In our example, the example Standards Selector custom view was added to a custom attribute set and is now available in the Metadata expandable section when creating a catalogue item. The Author creating the catalogue item can select the button to undertake the tasks set up in the custom page:
