Custom Fields allow you to add your own fields to categories, products, customer records as well as other things. It’s a powerful tool built into the Miva admin and there are virtually unlimited ways you can use this functionality.
Custom Fields is already installed in Miva, but it is considered a module, and it’s a part of the Shadows framework.

2. On the Utility Settings page, click the Custom Fields tab.
3. Next, click the New Custom Field button in the upper right corner.
4. In the Add Custom Field box that opens you will choose the type of custom field:
