Add Custom Attributes to Your Devices

The custom attribute feature is the ability and option to add extra information about each device that is connected to your account.

For example, you are able to add a permanent phone number, country, manager name or any other information that is unlikely to change and that is specific to a particular device.

The custom attributes can be added and edited on the “Edit Device” page, which can be accessed by clicking on the “Configure” button on your account’s “Devices” page.

(Bear in mind that you’ll need to have at least one attribute associated with one of your devices to see the dropdown when you’re working with the connections).

Currently this feature is only available on the Email and Word/PDF connectors, but we are intending to add this feature to the other connectors, too. Keep checking for updates on this, as we will be sure to keep you posted!
