Custom Fields (Portfolio)

The Custom Fields (Portfolio) page allows you to create a template with custom fields or formulas that can be applied to your project.  These templates are saved in the system and can be reused for future projects.  When creating a custom field, the user will be given the options to choose the data type (text, date, number, currency, list) and location displayed (threat, opportunity, or mitigation sections). When creating a formula field, the user will be given the options to choose the location displayed (threat, opportunity, or mitigation sections).
