Custom Attributes

What are they?

There are a number of standard attributes which exist for contacts. These include data like the contact's email, phone, address details, CRM ID, favorite agent, and more. However, we know that not all contact data will fit into one of these categories. Contacts being imported from an integration, for example, may have additional attribute types that differ from the ones offered. That's why CloudTalk lets you add your own custom fields, known as custom attributes. 

Create Custom Attributes

  1. From the dashboard, navigate to Account > Settings and scroll down to the Contacts section.

  2. Select + Add Custom Attribute. You can make as many custom attributes as you want, or remove existing ones.

  3. Select Save Settings to finalize changes.

  4. To delete custom attributes, clear the name of the field and save the change. Empty fields will automatically be removed from all contacts.

  5. New attribute fields will be displayed within the real-time customer card, contact detail, and screens for adding or editing contacts.
