You can create custom fields in menu Settings / Custom field / Add new.

- Text - if you create a field with the text type, you will be able to fill in the information which you need. E.g. text field can be used for certain passport information, loyalty card number, other data that can be entered by writing.
- Date - this will allow you to select certain dates. E.g. can be used for certain documents' expiration date, booked tour dates and etc.
- Checkbox - you will be able to tick the box. E.g when you need to mark if the guest required parking, identify the gender of the guest and etc.
- Dropdown box - you have an opportunity to enter several possible answers that you can choose from. E.g. Allergies of the diet: peanuts, lactose, gluten, none and etc.
