Unveiling ERPNext’s Capabilities

ERPNext, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software crafted by Frappe Technologies, operates on open-source code. Despite its inherent limitations, the software’s customization tools empower users to overcome these constraints. The Customize Form tool takes center stage, allowing users to modify Form Types or Document Types (DocTypes) directly on the front-end. This means adding custom fields to suit your needs or adjusting the properties of standard fields.

Initiating Customization


To begin customization, navigate through the menus: Home > Customization > Form Customization > Customize Form. On this page, specify the Form Type, filling in the necessary details. Explore a plethora of features, such as altering labels, editing title fields, customizing print formats, adding image fields, and configuring attachment limits. Users can also set search fields, sort orders, default email templates, and more based on personal preferences.

Tailoring Fields to Fit


Beyond form customization, ERPNext allows users to customize individual fields. Recognize that each form in ERPNext comes with standard fields. Should you require additional information, insert a custom field through the ‘New’ option, selecting the document and defining label and field type. Further customization includes options like ‘mandatory field,’ ‘read-only privileges,’ ‘bold,’ ‘report hide,’ and more, providing extensive control over your data.
