Custom Objects can be set up to contain any piece of information. What is an object?

  1. Go to ⚙︎ > Custom Fields
  2. Click on New Object
  3. Follow the prompts to name your object, link to other objects, and create custom fields.

For example (above), a healthcare customer has created an Invoice Object to capture invoice details from clients. This data is hosted on Tanda, which then feeds into their payroll system.

Where you can find them
