If you are using the Custom Fields extension for the first time, make sure you have downloaded and installed the extension. These articles will help you get started:

The Custom Fields extension allow you to create all sorts of extra information for your projects, milestones, tasks, bugs, and files. For example, in a web design project, the bugs could have fields for the browser type, PHP version, and screen size.

Custom Fields currently supports 6 field types:

  1. Radio buttons
  2. Dropdowns
  3. Checkboxes
  4. File uploads
  5. Text boxes
  6. Color pickers

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to add many more field types.
