Enter and save important information along with each Data Set by creating custom fields that you can edit directly on the FieldLab. For example: After you complete a test on the FieldLab, you can add the serial number of the device you tested, name of the technician who performed the work, work order number, etc.

Once saved, the information will be conveniently bundled alongside all the test data for future reference.

To use Custom Data Fields, they must first be added to the Test Mode. Learn how, here: Add Custom Data Fields to a Test Mode.
