Customer Attributes

Customer Attributes allow you to create text fields, drop down menus, checkbox areas and more on Customers, Leads, Opportunities and Support Tickets.

Lead Commerce puts that power into the end users hands. With attributes, you can create new text areas, drop down menus, checkboxes and more without any programming knowledge what-so-ever.

Below are the specific sections of the Customer Attributes detail sections:


Name This is the internal name of the custom attribute you are creating.
Status This is the status of the Attribute and can be Active, Inactive, or Archived.
Display Name This is the external name of the Attribute which will display in your storefront on web forms if the Show on Website (FLEX) option is selected.
Type The Type of Attribute you create can be drop down, small text area, large text area, checkbox, media and date.
Show on Website (FLEX) This option allows you to display your attributes on the web forms of your storefront.
Required This option requires that the data is filled out when creating a new customer or lead.
Slug The SLUG is a non-required field typically used for your storefront theme. Consult your web designer on questions relating to slugs or review the FLEX theming guide for more details.
Applies To This option allows you to indicate which subcomponents can use this custom attribute. Please Note: Data within these custom attributes are not shared.
Attribute Order This field requires a number. This number will correlate to the order of the attribute. For example, a 6 will make this attribute show up before any attributes with a 7 or higher. If blank, it is set to 0 by default.
