In the earlier article we talked about how to add custom fields inside your directory contacts. In this article we are going to talk about how to manage them better.
1. Hiding/Disabling custom fields
Hiding/Disabling custom fields lets you hide your selected custom fields, so that they are no longer available for you to populate. The data inside those custom fields is not lost and your segments using these custom fields, will still work.
You can choose to show/ re-enable them with a flick of a switch.
This is how you go about hiding/disabling custom fields -
a) Navigate to the custom fields page as shown in the image below -
b) Flick the switch to hide/show your custom field, as shown in the image below -
2. Deleting custom fields
As the name suggests, this feature lets you delete your selected custom field. Once the custom field is deleted, all the data populated inside it will be lost forever, and you won't be able to retrieve it. Moreover, your segments using the deleted custom field as a filter, will also break.
