Is it possible to add a custom field to an exisiting CiviCRM set of fields?
QUESTION: Is it possible to add a custom field to an exisiting CiviCRM set of fields? I would like to add a custom field that shows up in the 'Name and Greetings' set of fields. I would like to put that custom field close to (either before or after) the last name field in the 'Name and Greetings' group.
RESPONSE: In CiviCRM, you can create custom fields for any of the following objects:
Keep in mind that group custom data applies to the group itself, not to the group's members.
Custom data groups show up in a separate tab or inline, so you will not be able to put your custom field near the lastname field without hacking the template (tpl) file. You can inquire on the forums for more information on how to hack CiviCRM.
See Custom Data Fields & Custom Data Groups Admin for more information about custom data.
