Custom fields management

This article applies to:

You can create custom fields for your contact and company records. Keap Lite and Pro customers can create up to 100 custom fields for contact records, while Keap Max customers can create 150 contact custom fields. All customers can also create up to 100 custom company fields that are distinct from your contact custom fields. 

The field type you choose should correspond with the type of data you want to store in a way that satisfies your end goal for the data (i.e. reporting, merge field, etc.).
