Custom fields are a smart way to identify and group your workforce. You can create and manage tags and custom fields from the Users tab.
Custom fields are important since they will, later on, help you create Smart Groups and they will allow you to filter your workforce at all times.
Custom fields will help you better identify all your users. You can add them to your user's profiles. Later on, you can create groups using the custom fields. If you create a custom field for one user, that custom field will be added to every one of your users' profiles.
To add a custom field:
Click the Users tab on your sidebar.
Select any user.
Click Manage fields.
Click add field>custom field
