The Field Names Tab allows you to rename specific fields in the Membership and Scheduler modules. Renaming Fields is a way to customize your database to track information that is important to the church.
Custom fields are used to track specific information that Shepherd’s Staff isn’t already providing for. For example, there is no field for Households who get the Newsletter. A church could rename one of the Household fields (perhaps Option 1) to Newsletter. Since a field is being used, a Dynamic Subgroup can be made for Newsletter, making it easy to get labels for Newsletter recipients.
