Fields are custom properties that allow you to enhance work organization and data management in Crowdin Enterprise by adding additional helpful information, links, or data to various entities like your projects, user accounts, tasks, and more.

Fields offer flexibility and customization to suit various use cases, whether marking critical projects, categorizing tasks, or adding contextual information to user accounts. This allows for enhanced clarity on work happening within a Crowdin Enterprise organization. Fields can be created and managed either via UI or API.

Fields are also often created by Crowdin Apps. Usually, it’s best to preserve custom properties created by Crowdin Apps as they are.


You can use fields in numerous scenarios. Her er nogle eksempler:

  • Project Prioritization – mark critical projects with a custom checkbox field, allowing easy identification and prioritization.
  • Task Categorization – use custom labels or the select lists to categorize tasks based on specific criteria or attributes.
  • User Customization – add fields to user accounts to store additional information or preferences.
  • Crowdin Apps Integration – fields may serve as storage for app-specific information, facilitating integration with third-party applications.


  • Field – a customizable data entry point, allowing users to input specific information.
  • Entity – an object to which fields can be added (e.g., Project, Task, User, File, or String).
  • Location – the area within the UI where the field will be displayed.


Fields can only be created and edited by the organization owner and admins either through UI or API. Once created, fields can be used by users with the appropriate roles in the organization. For example, a user who can create projects will be able to view and apply a field in the Create project dialog or in any other location available to the entity of the field.

Managing Fields via API

Fields can be created using API methods from the Fields category.

Once a field is created, you can use it with the preconfigured entities with the Patch and Get API methods:

Editing Field Values

Editing Field Values via UI

Once created, fields can be added to editable locations within the UI, allowing users to input or modify data as needed.

Editing Field Values via API

Once a field is assigned to an entity, its value can be edited via API. For this, add a new parameter field to API calls that support fields. The parameter field should contain an object with the key as the field’s slug and the value as the field’s value for the specific entity (e.g., {"fieldSlug": 2}).

Field Types

Crowdin Enterprise supports various field types, each of which meets different data entry requirements:
