You can use Custom Fields to create fields that only store data for administrative uses, that aren't shown to customers.
For example, let's say you have a field called UPC that will store data that is used within your company, but your customers don't need to see it. No problem! Create the field as usual, and select the check-box that says Exclude From Display. Your field will no longer show to your store's visitors.
How Can Admins Edit These Fields?
- Use the Chrome Extension and your admins can edit the fields right in Shopify.
- You can have them come to the app and look up the product or other object you want them to edit. There are contextual links on products and other objects in Shopify that bring the admin right to the object they want to edit.
