So recently somebody asked if I could add number of

floors to this, so I would just create, um,

the number of floors drop down in the admin,

and then I can move it to the other relevant permits. Right?

Yep. From

The left hand side.

Exactly. So residential new


Then, uh, wherever you wanted.

It's like, so I could just copy the, like, number of proposed bedrooms,

do a copy field, change it to floors.

Yeah. Um, yeah, I always like to check and make sure it's not a variable text.

And then, yeah, copy


So as soon as you save this screen, once you save it,

does it automatically just show up in the left hand side?

Yeah. So now that I've, I've created that custom field,

it is over here on any other of the screens. It's,

it's created whether or not I save that,

but I'll save this to save it on that screen.

Then we go to a commercial or something,

do a number of,

there it is, you highlight it and then you go, okay, where did I want that?

I want that right here.

So in the available custom fields, I know I can search,

start typing what it starts with, but can I do like a control F? So for example,

yeah. Or floors. Okay, good.

Yep. You can do the floors. That, that I, I love that. And then it,

it will jump around in the inside the dropdown, like it'll scroll for you.

Uh, and so yeah, you can do that.


Just send some here.

Once you highlight it and hit enter it moves it over. Okay.

Yeah, that's what I did.

Yeah. And you can do lots of them at the same time. Um, but if you're,

if you're creating a new permit that's very similar to say, like the mixed use,

there's a copy button,

copy this table and all the fields in it,

and then you just subtract or move or do what you need to do with the changes.

That's how I created all, all of them. So uniformly, right? Like this was like,

oh, here's, we're gonna copy the new copy, copy, copy, copy, copy.
