Setting up Contact and Organisation Custom Fields

ActiveDEMAND starts with a basic set of Organisational and Contact fields. To keep things simple, ActiveDEMAND has a small set of attributes for both Organisations and Contacts. You may want to add your own set of Custom Fields to an Organisation or Contact.
