Adding Custom Fields

If you need more information to be printed on a document and can not find a proper field to add this information, you can customize Totals to support your own fields.

To add custom fields

  1. Open Preferences. Click the Preferences button in the toolbar.
    A new window sheet will open.
  2. Click Custom Fields in the sheet toolbar.
  3. In the left source table select the object type you want to add a custom field for. Example: "Invoice".
  4. Click the plus button at the bottom of the custom fields table.
    A new empty custom field will appear in the custom fields table.
  5. Enter a name for the custom field. The name must be unique for each object type.
  6. If you want a default value for the custom field, enter a value in the Default value column next to Name column.
  7. Click Done to close the preferences window.

All objects of the same object type which were created earlier will also get the new custom fields with the default value. Please note that custom field names starting with '@' are reserved by Totals.

Don't use custom field names starting with '@'
