Create Text Custom Field

This request allows you to create a text Custom Field.


Custom fields are used by lenders to track information that's important to their business practices but isn't native to LoanPro. Here's what you need to know about this request:

  • Custom fields can display several different types of information. This request creates a custom field that displays text.
  • Users create custom fields for entities such as Loans, Customers, and more. Once the field has been set up, it will be included as an option for each newly created entity. When creating the entity a custom field is associated with, the user determines the value of the custom field.
  • Custom fields do not update themselves automatically. However, you can set a default value for the field.

For an example of how custom fields work within the UI, take a look at our Using Custom Fields article.
