    All other standard custom field types are read-only.

    Text-field (multi-line) is not supported.
    AdvancedAll Advanced custom field types are not supported.
  3. If you want to delete a field, hover over the left side of the field row, click  and Remove from plan.
  4. If you want to add more fields, click + Add custom field, which is located on the same screen.
