Visible to the End User

Custom fields may store a privileged additional information that is required for support and troubleshooting and must be shown on the web interface without the risk of exposing it to end users.

However, such information as customer’s bonus, driving license ID, etc. can be useful for both an administrator and end user.

This fields shows whether end users are enabled to see and edit this custom field on their self-care interfaces.

 

Note that an administrator can add custom fields to the customer class managed by a reseller. In this case, however, only fields created via the admin interface will appear on this tab.
