Overview

When configuring multiple fields, you might need to group them in different tabs on the expiration item screen. This prevents having a long list of fields on the default Custom Fields tab.

How grouping fields in tabs work

By default, each category has a default tab called Custom Fields where all fields are shown. Generally looks like this.
