Introduction to the Toggle Custom Field Type
The Toggle Custom Field type in OctopusPro is a robust tool that enhances user interactions by providing a universally understood, language-independent method for capturing binary choices. Its design offers a straightforward, color-changing switch, allowing users to easily indicate their preference.
Potential Applications of the Toggle Custom Field
The versatility of the Toggle Custom Field transcends language barriers and can be applied to various features across your system. It can enhance service bookings, forms, checklists, and even customer and fieldworker profiles.
Broad Applications in Service Selection and Pricing
One of the most vital uses of the Binary Toggle Selector is its application in the realm of services.
When connected to services, the Selector can significantly influence pricing dynamics. An additional cost or time can be allocated to the ‘enabled’ state of the Toggle, consequently affecting the total service pricing based on user interaction. This functionality provides you with the flexibility to structure your service pricing efficiently.
Integration into Inquiry Forms
The Binary Toggle Selector shines when integrated into your website’s inquiry form. It plays a crucial role in capturing key binary information relevant to your operations. The user-friendly interface and clear visual cues make it easy for users to share their preferences, enhancing your data collection process.
Enriching Customer Profiles
Within customer profiles, the Binary Toggle Selector proves invaluable when recording unique customer traits or preferences specific to your industry. For instance, if you run a fitness center, a Toggle field can swiftly differentiate customers based on their workout session preferences, distinguishing between morning and evening enthusiasts.
Enhancing Fieldworker Profiles
In the context of fieldworker profiles, the Binary Toggle Selector effectively represents binary attributes or qualifications. Suppose your organization requires fieldworkers to possess certain certifications or complete specific safety trainings. In that case, the Toggle can instantly indicate a fieldworker’s status regarding these prerequisites, assisting in efficient compliance management and assignment planning.
Setting Up a Binary Toggle Selector Custom Field
The process for setting up a Binary Toggle Selector custom field is streamlined and easy to follow, although it varies slightly depending on whether it’s being added to customer or fieldworker profiles.
For Services, Forms, and Checklists
- Navigate to Settings > Services settings > Custom fields from the sidebar menu.
- Click on “New custom field”.
- Enter the necessary field details, including a field label that can be a question or title for your custom field.
- Choose “Toggle” from the field type drop-down menu.
- If necessary, assign additional cost or time for the enabled state.
- Add a dependent custom field that appears based on the Toggle’s state, if required.
- Enter any additional information or attach relevant documents.
- Click “Save” to complete the setup.
For Customer and Fieldworker Profiles
For applying a Binary Toggle Selector on customer or fieldworker profiles, the steps are quite similar, but the starting point differs.
To add the custom field to a customer profile, begin by navigating to Settings > General Settings > Customer Profile. For more details, visit the Adding binary toggle custom field on customer profile guide.
For a fieldworker profile, start by going to Settings > General Settings > Fieldworker Profile. More information can be found on the Adding binary toggle custom field on fieldworker profile page.
The following steps (from 2 to 8) remain the same as the process for services, forms, and checklists.
Remember to click “Save” once you have filled in all the necessary information and made your selections. Your Binary Toggle Selector custom field will now be ready for use.
Impact of the Toggle Custom Field on Service Pricing
