What are Custom Fields

IT administrators can use Custom Fields to create a separate view and show customized data. IT administrators can customize this field and have the data automatically filled in after an inventory scan. By doing so, IT administrators can create identifiers for IT assets that closely aligns with business internal jargons and helps them manage assets at ease.

For example

John, an IT administrator, wants to submit a report on the managed devices. These devices need to be grouped based on the mapped user's department, such as engineering, marketing, sales, HR or any. To achieve this, John can do this by defining a rule and creating a custom field.
