How do I set up a User Defined Field?

Within SIMS go to Tools | Setups | User Defined Fields
Click New

Enter a description for the field.

Select a Field Type. For instance, is your UDF to be a single line of text, or a Date, or a True/False field.

Select the Data Domain that it is to be applied to. (Staff, Pupil, School etc)

Tick the Data Areas that you want the UDF to be available in. (Basic Details, Ethnicity, Registration etc)

Set the minimum and maximum allowable values, if applicable

Make sure the Active box is ticked.

Save your UDF.

You may need to log out of SIMS .net and back in again before your UDF becomes available for use.
