In order to support a level of standardisation across the 6 product lines we have, I created a set of custom fields at the product line level. Each of the product manager then required additional fields add that are particular to their product.
Right now, on the feature and idea entry pages. All of the inherited fields are grouped together, and then the product specific fields.
I would like the ability to control the order of the fields so that I could intertwine the product line fields with the product fields.
This is most important for ideas and the ability to create an easy to use form for the idea portal.
The status of this idea was out of date. Since this idea was submitted we have made extensive updates to custom fields. Custom fields now live at the account level and can be reordered in all custom layouts used in products.
