Create a Custom Attribute

Fairways Debt offers you to add as many fields as required, in addition to the standard fields.

Custom attributes display as a:

  • Field in the applied item profile
  • Item of the Sort by field in the portfolio
  • Criterion of the portfolio filter
  • Column of the report
