String

To add a string custom attribute:

  1. Select String from the Type drop-down field.
  2. Enter the maximum number of characters for the free text response in the Max Length field (optional). This restricts the number of characters that can be entered by the end user.
  3. Enter a regular expression into the Reg Expression field (optional). This can be used to ensure the text the end user enters matches a required pattern.

  4. Select the Linked Objects expandable section and then complete the following for each place the custom attribute needs to display:

    1. Select the system object from the Object drop-down field. This is where the string free text entry field will display for end users.
    2. Enter text into the Caption field. This text will be the label for the string free text entry field.
    3. Enter text into the Hint Text field (optional). This will provide the end user with a hint when they hover over the Hint question mark icon next to the custom attribute.
    4. Select the Mandatory checkbox to set the string free text entry field as an item that must be completed (optional).
    5. Select the Inactive checkbox next to a linked system object (optional). This will set the link as inactive and the string free text entry field will not be shown to end users in this location.

    6. To remove a link between a system object and the custom attribute, select the Remove icon next to it.

  5. Select Save Custom Attribute.
