How to Use Custom Fields with Beamery Forms

Last Updated:

Custom Fields are unique fields that Super Admins can create within the Beamery Settings page. Form questions can be mapped into drop-down custom fields, allowing users another method to segment their database based on candidate responses. Form questions mapped into custom fields can also be used as recipe triggers.
