Article summary

Custom fields will have different configurations based on the type of data stored. This section will focus on four types of custom fields:

  • Fields that store free-text values

  • Fields that store a single value from a prompt list

  • Fields that store multiple values from a prompt list

  • Fields that store a yes/no value

Before configuring custom fields in Slate, carefully consider the data being captured and how it will be leveraged in Slate.

How to Create Bit Prompt List Fields

🔔 Important: No “Yes/No” Prompts!

Do not make “Yes/No” prompts in the Prompts tool. Without exception, a bit prompt is the best way to store this data.

For these fields there is a special prompt key called bit:

  • Prompt - Select the bit prompt key.

  • Value - Set the Value to Store Value for a custom field using a bit prompt (or the language, state, user, or country prompt lists).

  • Multiple - Set this to Single Value.

Why Not Store Prompt ID?

There are some prompt lists that save in Slate like a value. Fields using the following prompt keys must have the Value setting configured to Store Value:

  • Bit (Yes/No)

  • Language

  • State

  • Country

  • User

🔔 Important!

The following settings should never be changed after a field is in use:

  • Scope

  • ID

  • Prompt

  • Value

Changes to any of these may result in inconsistent and inaccurate data.
