2. If you need the custom field on a specific type of data only, please be sure to click on the tab of the type of data you want. Example, you want it under “Contacts” only and not in Company, Deals or Tickets, make sure the "Contact" tab is highlighted, if not click on it to be sure it is the one selected. Once you are sure that you are under the "Contact" tab, please click "Add Custom Field". Make sure the Company, Deal and ticket are not checked. Just complete the data needed then hit Submit and this field will appear only under Contacts.

4. Set up the Custom Field on the pane displayed. It's good to play around with it to explore features. In my case, I am adding "Gender" as a custom field and I am providing drop-down options for it, so I am using a list as type. I also provide the options on that list separated by commas(,). Once you are done with the configuration then click the "Submit" button.
