Microsoft Dynamics Marketing enables Administrators to set up User Defined Fields. More information: Configure user defined fields

  1. On the Home tab, choose Settings.

  2. Under Administration, choose Languages.

  3. Click the Language, for example, English (United States). Three columns appear.

  4. In the first column, click the area that you’d like to add a UDF to, for example, Lead Management. This will filter the results.

  5. Type user in the Search bar and click Go.

    Anything with the word user appears. User defined fields typically end with User # (user and then its corresponding number)

  6. Replace the Site Label text with the desired name for the field.

  7. Click Save.  


You can hide an enabled UDF. This will remove the field from the page but will retain the field data. Follow the exact same steps as described above except that you must replace the “Site Label” with the “Default Label” text. Then click Save.
