Manage Custom Fields & Tags

Last Updated: Apr 12, 2019 10:31AM PDT
On the Manage Custom Fields page (Settings > Manage Custom Fields), you can rename and remove the tags and custom fields used throughout Stitch. To create new custom fields, create or edit any variant, order, purchase order, or contact and select Custom from any supported field.

Note: This article applies to both our Stitch X and Stitch Classic Versions.


Tags are labels that you can apply to products, orders, purchase orders, and contacts. Deleting a tag won’t delete associated records.

Tip: To learn more about using and adding tags, see Using Tags.
