Custom Fields are being utilized in various ways to enhance the data within the platform. This update incorporates a multitude of improvements to custom fields. It introduces expanded tagging capabilities and, notably, introduces rich reporting and filtering functionalities for custom fields.

In This Release:

Custom Fields Enhancements

Custom Fields offer a pathway to seamlessly integrate your unique data with the existing information on Coaching.com. For instance, you can document and monitor billing-related details, establish personalized attributes for coachees, and more. Moreover, you have the ability to specify access permissions and control data update privileges.

Custom Fields are undergoing significant expansion to encompass even more areas for tagging, such as Coaches, Clients, and Vendors. Additionally, a plethora of new functionalities has been introduced, spanning from bulk import capabilities to new filters, and enhanced reporting and exports. These advancements culminate in an exceptionally robust platform, enhancing operational workflows and fostering deeper insights.

Applying Custom Fields

Previously, custom fields could be applied to Engagement Templates, Engagements, Employees, and Coachees with a Premium or Enterprise subscription. With this update, custom fields are now extendable to Coaches, Clients, and Vendors, broadening the scope for tracking data and leveraging organizational structures for specific types of information. For instance, you can assign custom fields to the client company, such as Billing Code, while allocating individual custom fields to coachees, like Manager's Email.
