Managing Properties - Overview
The following types of custom properties may be created, and all follow the same process for creation:
- Establishment Properties
- Establishment Contact Properties
- Provider Contact Properties
- Provider Properties
- GCD Properties
- Pump Out Properties
- FSE Permit Properties
- Equipment Properties
- Yellow Grease Properties
To view, create and edit properties, click the cog icon in the top right corner to access Settings. Click Properties on the menu on the left.
Choose the section you would like to customize properties for by clicking on the relevant tab (i.e. in the example below, Provider properties).
To create a property, click on the green Create property button.
Create a Label for the property (required) - this is the title of the property as it will be displayed in the system.
Create an Internal name for the property (required) - this is for internal use only and won't be displayed.
Add a Description for users to understand the custom property (optional).
Choose a Field type from the dropdown menu (required). A table defining the field types can be found below.
Click Save to save your new custom property. Once created, a custom property will display on the associated item.

To edit an existing custom property, click the blue name of the custom property. Update the original form and click Save.
To delete an existing custom property, click the blue name of the custom property, click the red Delete button and confirm in the pop-up window.
Pump Out Properties
Pump out properties are slightly different as there is the option to select a check box requiring that all users enter a volume for that is larger than zero gallons. This is for jurisdictions where pump outs of zero gallons create tracking issues.
There is also the option to make any new property required. This means any user or provider that is entering pump outs would have to include an answer to the category that is marked as required.
FSE Permit Properties
Adding, editing or deleting custom FSE permit properties is done in the same way as customizing other properties.
FSE permit properties, like pump out properties, also have the option to select a check box to make any new property required. This means any user or provider that is adding an FSE permit would have to include an answer to the category that is marked as required.
