What are Custom Fields?
Custom fields provide users who are not Windchill RV&S system administrators the ability to define fields for capturing project-specific metadata using the Windchill RV&S client GUI.
Project administrators with appropriate permissions to create or edit an instance of a project backing item can define custom fields. When items are associated with a specific project, those items allow users to specify values for the custom fields defined on the project backing item.
Users with appropriate permissions to edit an instance of an item can modify the custom field values.
