Custom Fields by Type (Contact, Job, WO)
Custom fields should be linked to the contact type (the same should apply to job type, and WO Templates as well). This way we can have custom fields based on the contact type we are using. Instead of fields that aren't applicable to the contact type.
We love this idea.

Yes! I added a ton of my own fields with claim number etc but don't need all of those fields for all types of jobs.

We have several different types of Jobs: Sales, Service, Parts. Each one of those types of jobs have different fields of information that are necessary. Not all fields pertain to all job types. It would be nice to be able to create job fields that are linked to that TYPE of job. Sales would have order #, manufacturer, ETA, etc... Service would have: Original order number, Service request #, warranty type, etc... Right now we have all fields all the time and makes it difficult to sort through the data entry for job type.

I am mostly interested in this for Jobs but it would be nice for customers too.
For example - We have a warranty department and are ordering replacement parts for customers. We would like to track things like case #s, part information, etc. We want to be able to create a report for those jobs and export to Excell workbook, so it's important to have separate fields to create the Excell table.
But not all of those fields are pertinent to our other jobs (solar installations). I don't like having to clutter the job fields and have fields in solar project management that are only used for the warranty department.
It would be great if when the Job Type is selected, there are certain fields that show up - see attached photo.

I really like that the forms are pop ups on the pages so you dont get brought around to 20 places to do something, but i feel like there needs to be a tiny bit more with them to make it really pleasurable to look at and fill out. Having different questions that are based on which job type you select for it would be a major help alone. Some other features that tie along with this would be the ability to position them a little more and not just top bottom. Also being able to make certain fields start appearing in the stage that they are needed. Thank you.

We use this feature to track services. It would be helpful if we could change what input fields show up in the job depending on the job type.

Show/Hide Fields based on answer of other fields.
Lets say I choose a Cash Job from the Job Type. I would like to hide all insurance fields that I have created based on that type.
Office Group commented
I love this idea also. Very much agree that this would be super helpful.

Some of our jobs are retail and some are insurance. I would love to see insurance information as mandatory custom fields -- only if the "Retail" boolean was not selected. If it was (and the job was retail), the required insurance fields would disappear or become invalid.
