There are three types of custom field: text, list and users.

Text

Displayed to the right of a record, a text field can be used to hold key data. There is an optional regular expression, with pre-defined options for Integer, US date and US dollars.

For larger data volumes, click the multi-line option. This field will be displayed underneath the details field in a record.

This field can be used for any purpose where you need to involve a person such as Assigned to, Reviewer, Approver, Developer and Owner. You can select multiple people, and a notification will be sent out when the field is updated and the record is saved.
