Creating Custom Attributes/Meta Data for a Allocations.

To create an attribute for an allocation, navigate to Developer section, then Meta Data tab. Click Allocations  from the options at the top of the screen and then click "Add Customer Meta Data".

Select a title for your attribute. For an example, I'll create an attribute for notes for an allocation. I'll title my attribute "Notes for Allocation". 

"Code" is just a reference point for doing API calls. You do not need to change this, but you can if you'd like. 

Next select your data type. We offer 11 different data types. Because I want to make notes I'll use text box for mine.

Decide whether or not you want your attribute to be a required field. 

Finally you can set the sort order. The sort order determines the order your attribute will appear in the allocations meta data tab. 

Select "Add Allocation Meta Data" when you're finished building your attribute.


Now You can go over to an allocation and test it out. Click on Store > Allocations > choose the allocation > Click the Meta Data tab.
