Adjusting Profile Fields
You can apply flexible settings to the fields in any profile.
Go to Main menu — Settings — CRM — Contacts / Objects / Deals / Activities:
Here you can select from a variety of field types, define their order of appearance in profiles, link fields and adjust the parameters of search fields on pages "Contacts" and "Objects".
You can also add new types of objects, activities, and deals here:
New fields can be added to any profile:
After adding a field, you can mark it as:
- obligatory field (requires mandatory filling when creating a new profile):
- search field (a filtering tool to be displayed on the right sidebar):
The system offers a great variety of fields:
- yes/no selection (radio button);
- simple selection (single choice);
- complex selection (multiple choice);
- date (calendar);
- duration (minutes indicator);
- date-time (time indicating calendar);
- even numerals;
- fractional numerals (in decimal format);
- document (file attachment);
- location (geotag);
- link (adding the link to another CRM element in the search field).
You can adjust the sequence of fields in any profile by dragging them:
Every selection field option can be tagged with a different color:
This color will appear in profiles and in lists making them very informative and convenient to use:

Now you can fill in the content you desire to appear in profiles:
After a field is created, an "Explanatory text" bar appears below it:
