Custom fields are fields that can be added to a system that may be unique to an agency. Custom fields are sometimes referred to as user defined fields. If an agency decides they wish to capture additional information at some point in the application they can have an administrator add that field without the need to involve a software developer. For example, an intake service director may decide that they wish to add a field to the referral screen to track domestic violence. Matrix administrator can add the field to the referral screen and choose to make it mandatory if they wish.
