Adding Custom Fields to a Component

In order to add a custom field to a component, you'll need to add the custom field to the category the component is using. That way, it will appear for all components using that specific category.

Let's add a custom field to the component below, a 1 TB SSD.

Start by clicking on the category of the component.

Now, click on the Edit button.

Scroll down on the page until you see the Custom Fields section, and click on the Show button. This is where you can add your own custom fields that will appear for all components using this category.

These are the types of custom fields you can create:

  • Text Field

  • Text Area (Multi-line)

  • Number Field

  • Dropdown List

  • Checkbox

  • Date Field

You can also choose if the custom field should be a required field or not. To add options to a Dropdown List custom field, you just need to fill out the Dropdown List Content field using this format: ["Option 1", "Option 2", "Option 3", ...]

In this example, we've added three custom fields; Form Factor (Text Field), Read Speed (MB/s) (Number Field) and Write Speed (MB/s) (Number Field).

Once you've added the custom fields, scroll down and click on the Save button. Then, go back to the component page and click on Edit Component.

After scrolling down to the bottom of the page, we can see that the custom fields we added are now visible and can be filled out for the component!

Once we've filled out the custom fields and saved, we can see that they now appear for the component!

Removing Custom Fields from a Component

In order to remove a custom field from a component, you just need to go back to the Custom Fields section of the Edit Category page and make the Field Title field empty for the custom field you'd like to delete, and click Save.
