Hello,

Regarding the Attributes screen and setup (CS205000). This is a great way to add custom fields to something, such as business account profiles.

However there a way to make attributes an option on the Activities screen, and for the individual Activity types?

So that if Activity Type X is chosen, there is an option to add an attribute regarding that Activity Type.

Is this possible?

Hello @dan_00,

There is no such functionality at the time. Also, please note that the attributes being replaced with the user-defined fields. However, the Activities form does not support UDFs either. I would suggest to submit this as an idea on https://community.acumatica.com/ideas

Not sure this is what you had in mind but you can do a customization to add the new field(s) you want.

I use Attributes to drive the values available in a dropdown. So it is a custom field on the activity screen rather than in an Attributes or UDF tab.
