  2. Select the type of record for creating a Custom Column (User, Class, Item, etc.);
  3. Select "Add New";
  4. Fill the Column Number and Label for the new custom column;
  5. Select the "Referenced" checkbox accordingly;
    • If the checkbox is checked, the custom column will be referenced;
    • Leaving unchecked, the custom column is created as Free Text.
  6. Hit the "Add" button.

For referenced Custom Columns you can Edit it and Add References to it (which are the values available to be selected for the Referenced Custom Column). For the References, you provide a Reference ID and a Description.
