Extra tab

The Extra tab is available on the:

  • (AE) Assignment Details page

  • Client page

  • Contacts page

  • Employee page

  • (AE) Suppliers page.

The Extra tab is used to maintain extra lists, types and field information. The extra list is used to store information that cannot be logically stored elsewhere in the contact, client, (AE) assignment, employee or (AE) supplier areas.

Extra lists and fields are configured by the system administrator in Maintenance.

Each Maintenance(AO) Maintenance MapUser defined > Extra option contains all the available categories and fields for the Extra tab.

The information displayed in the Extra tab will depend on how the extra lists and fields have been configured. The Extra tab can also be used to create, edit and delete any of the information shown in the Value field.

Information displayed on the Extra tab can be grouped and sorted. See Organising your data.
