 +A UDF (User Defined Field) is a feature of OpenDocMan that allows the administrator to add custom meta-data fields to all documents.
 +To Add UDF's:
 +====== Selection List Item ======
 +  - Click on Admin->​UDF->​Add
 +  - Enter the Internal Name (5 chars): ex. col2
 +  - Enter the Display Name: Color 2
 +  - Select "​Select List"
 +  - Click "Add UDF"
 +Now that the UDF is added, the Select List UDF needs some values for the users to pick from:
 +  - Click on your new UDF in the admin menu (ex. "​col2"​)
 +  - New Value: "​Blue"​
 +  - Click Update
 +  - New Value: "​Red"​
 +  - Click Update
 +Now "​edit"​ or "​add"​ a file and you should see a new dropdown list with Blue/Red as options for each file.
 +Radio items are done the same way as Select lists. ​
 +The Text Field UDF just provides a blank text box for each file.
