The Admin Custom Order Fields extension allows you to add fields to an order for details, notes, dates, and more. These fields can also be used to sort or filter orders in the order dashboard, and are geared towards streamlining and centralizing order information and notes.
By default, these fields can only be viewed by the administrator, but can optionally be included on the customer’s “My Order” page. To learn how to optionally include this information, check out the section on Field Attributes.
- Download the extension from your WooCommerce dashboard
- Go to Plugins > Add New > Upload and select the ZIP file you just downloaded
- Click Install Now, and then Activate
- Go to WooCommerce > Custom Order Fields and read the next section to learn how to use the plugin.
There are no general settings to configure for Admin Custom Order Fields, but there are a few options you can set for each field you create. First, to create a field, go to WooCommerce > Custom Order Fields.
