Each custom field type has its own limits. The maximum number of custom fields that you can add per entity, depends on:


Note: All custom field limits are per entity. i.e per lead module or contact module. This means, if for a given plan, if your field limit is 10, then you can create 10 custom fields for leads, contacts, accounts, and deals each. 


1. Your current plan:

Based on your current plan, your overall limit (inclusive of all field types) varies. To know more on the plan-specific features, refer this:

Note: 
  • Prior to this revision in field limits, all plans allowed a maximum of 100 fields to be added.

    For example, say, you are a garden user. At present, you've added a total of 125 fields. Clearly, with reference to the new limits you've exceeded your current limit by 25 fields. So, for all existing users who've exceeded the revised limit, "You can't add more fields."

  • If your account has 1 field each of checkbox, number, text field, and text area left unused, then the total number of formula fields you can create is 4 (Even if your account has a quota of 10)

  • If  you are creating two formula fields of return type number and text fields, then this will be deducted from your quota of number fields and text fields

 

What happens to the extra fields on the downgrade?

When you downgrade your plan, so does your maximum field limit. 

Say, for instance, you have downgraded from Garden to Blossom.

- As a Garden user, you could add up to 150 fields. 

- You have added 115 fields in total.

- Now that have opted for the Blossom plan, your limit is only 100. So, there are 15 extra fields.  

" The extra fields need to be deleted"

Please delete the extra fields before you downgrade.
