Custom Fields with More Space
I have recently begun utilizing the "Custom Fields" feature within Lightspeed Retail. I really like the idea of it, although it seems like it's only useful for reference purposes. I decided to use them for our customers' Tax Exemption IDs. Doing so, I found that it is limited to a maximum number of 1,000,000,000.
For instance, let's say a customer's Tax Exemption ID is 9125435617. If I were to use this in the custom field I made, it will change to 1000000000 after saving the changes. It appears that 1000000000 is the largest possible number that can be used in the custom field. (I tried this for both 'Text' and 'Number' fields).
I understand that the "Custom" field under "Other" could be used for this. Additionally, I could just type it into the customer's notes. But doesn't that defeat the purpose of custom fields?
As large numbers such as Tax Exemption IDs may be used in many stores, I believe that it would be useful to many people to have this number limit increased or removed.
Thanks for your consideration,
