Note: Only the Administrator can create or edit custom fields for a member or role.

Custom fields allow organizations to add more information to roles, circles, or members, allowing you to add more details on how things work in your organization.

For example, it can be the Role Capacities to describe what the role does or a Location to describe where a member is located. It can be whatever you want to make things more clear.
