Custom Modules in Zoho

One tip we’d like to share on our blog today is related to custom modules. If you’ve created a custom module in Zoho CRM, then you already know of the standard custom module name field. By default, this is a required, single-line field that essentially names the record. Often, it becomes an extra step when it comes to the record creation process, and is not always needed.

In order to work around this, you can take advantage of another method that Zoho has implemented. In order to use this feature, it must be set up when the custom module is initially made.

Here’s what you’ll need to do.

  • Once you click on “Create Custom Module,” you’ll want to hover over the “CustomModule Name” field, which will automatically be created.
  •  You’ll then click the gear wheel, and then on “Edit Properties.”
  • Click the “Auto-Number Radio” button, which will allow you to change the field from a single-line text field to an auto-number field.
  • After completing these steps, you’ll then have the option to rename it, as well as add a suffix and/or prefix. You’ll also have the option to set your starting number. It then becomes a form of identification, which is automatically filled in when the record is made.
