This is where you configure custom fields belonging to Products/Assets/Config items

You can add new (custom) fields to Config items. These fields are added to the basic Product/Config item information that is already present in VisionProject. The custom fields will be visible in the Product page, and can be used for various information about products/config items that are of interest to you.


This page has two parts:



Sections are a way to group custom fields together, and will be shown in separate sections containing custom fields in the product/Config item. The custom fields are at the bottom of the General sub-tab of a product/config item. 

When having a section in the list you can press "X" to delete or the icon to the right to edit the section.




Create a new section by clicking on the 'Add new section' link, enter section name and order in the dialog, and press submit.

Order sets in what order, after the basic product/Config item information, the section is shown (good use if you have more than one extra section).

The custom field table have these columns:

  • Sectionnametypemandatoryorder and actions (se below for field descriptions). The actions contains the delete and edit functions. Delete removes the custom field, and edit opens the custom fields dialog for that custom field.
