Overall, a great app with stellar support. The Bulk Edit scenarios work but have some caveats you will want to be aware of. But it appears to meet our needs.
We use this app to create customization on product pages. The collapsible sections make our product info easy to find and look professional. I like how easy it is use. With the free Chrome extension I can add and update information in Custom Fields within Shopify. We also use this app to make our tutorial blog pages more organized and include multiple photos to accompany step-by-step instructions. When I have questions, I receive helpful answers promptly. I recommend Custom Fields for anyone looking to add customization to their Shopify site.
This app provides an easy way to manage custom fields/shopify metafields. It's can recognize already set up metafields and is pretty easy to use.
Makes adding meta fields and content simple and has helped us provide more product detail in key touchpoints. Great app very intuitive and helpful support.
I am setting up my store and at the time of writing this am going live pretty soon. I have a fulfilment email I have set up and wanted to include some of the product detail in this email. The problem was there was a lot of extra information which was unrelated to the particular product detail I wanted to include and would have made my fulfilment email twice as long and very cluttered. As you will know, on the Shopify product page you get a description box and everything has to go in this. So I needed a way to split up the information into different sections or fields. Custom Fields has worked very well for this.
One of the reasons I was attracted to Custom Fields was because of the automatic install. As I found out, not all themes are compatible though. My theme did not install automatically. Kenny in support was very quick to help and installed it for me. The support is normal office hours (not 24 hr) which I believe is a time zone in the USA.
Because it was a manual installation – it meant that if I created some fields in other sections to the one support installed, that there was a small amount of code – basically one line, that needed to be cut and paste into a liquid file – which is quite easy. It took me a while to get my head around what was going on and the files that were involved. Kenny was always helping me out so I got there. Kenny has told me that within a few weeks or so there is a new upgraded version coming out which will allow new installations to work whatever the theme.
Now (after setting up my new fields in Custom Fields) on the product page I have the original product description Shopify field, plus another 3 fields that I have generated with Custom Fields. Two of these are global, which means they apply the text fields I have set up to all my product pages simultaneously. Now when I set up a new product I can add a little info in the product description and the 2 global sections get added automatically - which saves me cutting and pasting the info in every time. Also it means that if I would like to change that information, I can do it in one place, and immediately it will update all of my product pages.
The 3rd field I have created is more specific to the type of product and describes the details for that type. This I would like to set up with fields for each different type – then when adding a new product on a product page I would link the specific field from the Custom Fields app and it will display all the details I already set up (– although I am limited to 10 fields in the free version).
I understand that this will be even quicker in the future upgrade - sometime in October 2020. My belief is that I could then have a field for each product type as before, but it could be set up to apply itself to all the product pages within a selected collection. That way every time I create a new product page, I would just have to assign the product into a collection and the appropriate custom field would display automatically on the page. I would not have to go into the Custom Field app and link up the product page to the field, it would just know this due to the product being in a certain collection and therefore be even more automated.
I am just using simple text fields here, and there are many other fields and other functionality available so I have only scratched the surface.
One thing to say on the free version is that there is a list-field that you can use and the help section gives you the impression you can use this to display bulled text lists. To let you know – this is not the case – you cannot create a bullet style list, but does allow drop down lists for selections or via radio buttons etc. If you have the next version up then you are able to create lists and more.
So yes this works very well for me, I am very pleased. It has given me the ability to split up information into specific sections. It has allowed a lot of automation and an easy way to change information that is displayed on multiple pages. The support has been very good and I am looking forward to the new upgrade. I am using the free version at this time and it gives me what I need for the moment with some added bonuses I have discovered.
I have looked briefly at some other similar apps and this does seem to be one of the best if not the best.
I think the Custom Fields people are helping Shopify users out with this free version offering some great functionality and then as in my case as I get my store going and hopefully be profitable, then I can look at how to improve my store. With Custom Fields it is already installed so I am likely to go for the upgrade. It's a win win.
Many thanks to the team for the app and offering the free version.

The Custom Fields Team was super responsive and helped trouble shoot our site to ensure everything was displaying correctly. All was resolved in less than 48 hours!
This app works great for pages with complex design and gives you the ability to edit the contents easily.
This a highly important app that I use on a daily basis. Honestly, it should be native to Shopify already, but this is just perfect. Also, I have to mention that their support is incredibly responsive and helpful, which is all-too-rare among many other app developers...
