Custom inputs are one of the most dynamic and efficient tools available in the autotrading platform. Custom inputs can be created, edited, and added to any automation in your portfolio to give you added flexibility when building a bot.
Custom inputs are most useful when duplicating an automation with multiple variables.
For example, using a custom input for a symbol gives you the ability to reuse an automation and only modify the ticker symbol.
Bot-level inputs are advanced functionality used to send the custom input fields created in an automation to the bot level for higher control and more flexibility.
With bot-level inputs, any input can be edited in the bot settings when you create or clone a new bot. The benefit of using bot-level inputs is all decisions will be transferred to any automation using the input in that bot.
There is no limit to the number of custom inputs you can use.
If you use bot-level inputs, simply click on the gear icon for your bot and go to the settings menu.

If the input you are changing is a custom variable input, the change will only be reflected in this specific use of the automation.
