Custom Fields (Project)

The Custom Fields page allows the user to view or update the project settings.  The data displayed on this page is what is currently being used on the project.  When a project is first created, the system applies a default setting.  The default project settings can be changed by applying a portfolio template or manually adjusting it in the Custom Fields page.  When creating a custom field the user will be given the options to choose the data type (text, date, number, currency and list) and location displayed (threat, opportunity, threat and 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). There are no system defaults for the Custom Fields page.
