 +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.
