Custom fields

You can add your fields to the description of objects (such as places, staff, tasks, etc.) You can work with custom fields as usual: fill them, use them for filter selection. You can also assign a responsible team member. For this team member, a list of places will appear in the X-GPS Tracker mobile application.

At the moment, custom fields can only be added to places. In the future, this functionality will be expanded.
