You can always add fields to your TimeTap account either from a list of default fields that TimeTap provides (standard stuff like name, email, phone number, etc.) or you can create your own unique field.
There are several Client Fields that come with TimeTap including:
Address (line 1, line 2, City, State, Zip, County, & Country)
Date of Birth
Emergency Contact Phone
You can easily choose from and add these fields to your Define Field Labels section so that they are included on your client profiles. To do this, go to Settings → Client Information → Define Field Labels, click the Add New Field button, and click the tab to "TimeTap Fields":
Once in this tab, you will see a list of all of the default fields that are not already on your client information form. You will also see any of your custom created fields that you may have hidden:
Select any of the fields that you want to add by simply clicking them:
While TimeTap does have a lot of nice default fields that you can apply to clients, you can also create some custom fields that can be applied either to clients or to appointments.
On TimeTap Free accounts, you are limited to just 3 of these create your own fields. If you are a TimeTap Professional or Business user, you can add as many of these fields as you would like! (Not sure what TimeTap Professional or Business is all about? Learn more here).

From the Add New Fields tab, you'll first want to select which type of field you're adding. Please note: this is important to get right as you cannot change the field type once you've created it. You can add a:
Text field: This is just a single line of text

Checkbox: This is a yes/no checkbox that can either be selected or deselected
Multi Checkbox List: This will give you a list menu where you can define the values that a client can select, the client can select more than one value
Next, you'll want to choose whether this field is required or not, and whether it should show on the scheduler. This will allow to determine whether it should show on the scheduler for the client to fill out or if you just want the staff to have access to it through TimeTap's back office, and whether you want to apply it as an appointment custom field or a client custom field.
If you've selected to add a dropdown field, you'll also have the option to put in your dropdown values (you can come back and add to these at a later time if you want to):
You can also add a Field Hint, this information will show below the field to provide more context:
