Custom fields are a powerful tool to build content. Currently, there are several fixed fields in booking form like name, email, phone, country. In specific cases, user will need other fields. Some times, we also need the extra fields that the customer must pay the additional cost when they select any options of those fields.
This function is used to manage the custom extra fields for OS Services Booking. From this page, administrator can add/edit/remove/publish/unpublish the extra fields. At above page, you will see the column Field Area, with 2 values: Services and Booking form. We will explain the meaning of those words. One custom field can be shown at the Booking table page or Booking form page. When the custom field is setup to show at Booking table page, the Field Area value of that custom field will be: Services. And when the custom field is setup to show at the Booking form page, the Field Area value of that custom field will be: Booking Form.
