Any number of User defined fields can be added to Jobs, Manufacturing Orders and Operations.  They are visible in the Jobs pane and can be added to the Gantt Labels.  They can also be accessed by custom Add-ins.

User Fields are imported via the Interface Wizard and multiple fields must be separated by “;”.

The values for each field are specified as: <field name>~<value>~<data type>.

(Valid data types are: string, int, long, double, decimal, DateTime, and bool)

EXAMPLE: this would create one Field,  called “DateTestColumn”

'DateTestColumn~' + Date_String + '~DateTime'

If we wanted to create 2 columns the source would look like…

'DateTestColumn~' + Date_String + '~DateTime;DateTestColumn2~' + Date_String + '~DateTime'



The fields are visible on the right edge of the Jobs Pane:

udf column
