Adding a custom field to a custom object

Hi,

 

Once a custom object has been created is it possible to still add custom fields to it? I don't mind if data is lost...

 

At the moment if I click on 'Edit' next to the custom object it only gives me a very limited set of options, none of which allow me to add/change fields.

 

Thanks

 

Matt

Definitely possible!

 

Click the name/label of the custom object instead of clicking Edit.  This will display a page for that custom object where you can add new fields, validation rules and all sorts of other setup.

 

 

Setup | Create | Objects

Click name/label of custom object

Before you begin, determine the type of field you want to create.
1.From the management settings for the object you want to add a field to, go to Fields.Custom task and event fields are accessible from the object management settings for Activities.
2. Click New.  
3.Choose the 
type of field and click Next.
4. For relationship fields, associate an object with the field and click Next.
5. For indirect lookup relationship fields, select a unique, external ID field on the parent object, and then click Next. The parent field values are matched against the values of the child indirect lookup relationship field to determine which records are related to each other.
6.To base a picklist field on a global picklist value set, select the value set to use.
7.Enter a field label. I would like to share A video link which may benefit you    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksshmekZ6V8
