Just about everything in SourceHUB is customizable (with sensible defaults). One of the most utilized customizations are with the fields and templates around your specs and artwork.
To reduce friction and increase adoption, what product lines you use for your packaging as well as the fields themselves and what you name them should map to your company's existing nomenclature.
Start in Settings -> Data Fields. From here, you'll find all the default data fields on SourceHUB and the ability to create your own.
Before creating your own, search the General Fields to see if we have the field you're looking for. Using an existing field means SourceHUB will know what your data means, and can make use of it in reports and analytics.
If we don't have your field, add it here. At a minimum, creating a field requires a name and a type (file, text, measurement, etc.). Depending on the type you choose, additional options may become available (for example: dropdown types require a pre-set list of options).
Some fields may be specification-specific, like measurements. Others can be setup to track identifiers from other systems (e.g.: SAP #'s or invoice IDs). You can use fields to capture anything and everything you like.
So far, the fields you created exist in a library; but won't show up on your records yet. We do this because some fields exist in multiple product lines (e.g.: integration IDs). So, the next step is to map them to your templates by browsing to Settings -> Record Templates.
Record templates map and group the fields for your product lines (e.g.: flexibles, rollstock, etc.), artwork, and BOMs (ingredients, formulas, etc.). This is useful for certain fields like Length. From a data collection/reporting standpoint it means the same, but what it's called and how it's placed may differ depending on the packaging product line.
Like data fields, SourceHUB comes pre-loaded with a list of product lines. To customize your product lines, you have a few options:
Once you click into a product line, you'll see three tabs:
Once any changes are saved, you'll have the option of selecting a product line when creating records:
