Create default custom fields


I'm a new user and didn't find an answer in the forum nor in the knowledgebase.
Is there an option to determine default custom fields that will appear in every "login entry" saved?
For example, I want to save account member ID, account creation date (when I originally joined a service, not when I saved it in 1Password), etc., and I want these fields to be suggested for me to fill in every entry, without manually defining each of them in every entry. I don't need these fields to be populated automatically in any form, just for the sake of documentation.
I'm aware of secure notes, but I want these to appear as fields inside the "login" entries and not as separate entries.

Thanks in advance,

1Password Version: 7.2.5
Extension Version:
OS Version: 10.14.4
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Welcome to the forum, @varu23! At present, you can modify any individual 1Password item to suit you, however you can't change the template itself; when you create a new item in any category, it will initially have the default fields for that category. That means you'll need to individually make changes you want to see on an item-by-item basis.

    We are in the process of working towards allowing users to create custom categories, where you'd be able to create entirely new types of templates that you can define (nearly) all parts of. This is only available in 1Password Business accounts currently, and only with the beta features turned on, because it's still not quite ready for a stable release just yet. But I expect once the finishing touches are put on, you'll see this in other account types as well. Thanks for the question! :)

  • OK, thanks for the quick and clear response!
    I'm looking forward for this ability - it'll be a major UX improvement... :)

  • Any way to opt in to beta features as a Family user? I adopted it for family use when it was still a Team's only product and am happy to kick the tires on things!

    My major use case is the following:

    a) add a TOTP field by default to the standard login template, because everybody should use TOTP when available

    b) to create a new SSH key template, because the majority of the files stored are SSH keys, and those would be much easier to manage as a regular object with text for both public and private keys, as opposed to files.

    Hi @spectralblu!

    Beta features are only available in Business accounts, sorry!

  • Hi,

    Any update on this feature making it to general release yet?
