Custom Objects can be set up to contain any piece of information. What is an object?
Go to Platform
Click on New Object
Follow the prompts to name your object, link to other objects, and create custom fields.
For example (above), a healthcare customer has created an Invoice Object to capture invoice details from clients. This data is hosted on Workforce.com, which then feeds into their payroll system.
Where you can find them
All your Custom Objects will be located under the Workforce tab.
Name: Create a name to identify your custom object. If you're renaming a "native" (built in to Workforce.com) object, the name you choose will be used everywhere in Workforce.com. You should also set the plural version of the name to make everything look nicer.
Primary Field: Set which field will appear when you link this object to another custom object (this is needed for associations).
Create fields: Add your custom fields
Name: Name your custom field
Type: Choose the type of data this field receives (e.g. text, date, yes/no)
Link existing objects as fields: Data from other existing objects can be included in this custom object (e.g. a dropdown list of customers).
Name: Name the existing object as it will appear on this new object
Object: The object you are linking. Only the primary fields will appear.
Custom Objects is part of The Platform.
