GoHighLevel Custom Fields Overview

GoHighLevel contains 15 standard field options that you can use to request information from your prospects.

These include fields such as Names, Emails, Phone Numbers, Date of Birth, and Addresses.

If, however, you need different information that the provided standard fields do not cover, you will need to create a custom field.

These can then be added to your surveys and forms to gain more information.

After you’ve created a custom field, it will be saved, and you’ll be able to access it in the drag-and-drop editors when creating lead forms and surveys.

When to Use GoHighLevel Custom Fields

You can use GoHighLevel Custom Fields when creating forms and surveys.

Once the prospect has submitted the information, you can create a Workflow to follow up with customized marketing and call scheduling campaigns to move the prospect down the pipeline.

A few ways businesses can use them:

  • Gym or fitness programs – You could create a custom field asking what the prospect’s goals are; then, when you follow up with them, you can respond with a tailored offer.
  • Dental and chiropractic leads – A simple question such as the price willing to pay can help you segment the higher and lower value leads.
  • Roofing companies – Ask specific questions about the type of roof using drop-down boxes to ensure you can provide services to the client.

The surveys and forms with the custom fields can then be embedded onto your lead or site page for prospects to fill out.
