Hi Andre, 

Nick here from Shopify. 

There is a way to add a custom field at checkout and make it a requirement to continue with an order. Shopify actually has an advanced tutorial on how to do this which you can see by clicking here. Just to note, this is an advanced tutorial which is not supported by Shopify and would be for someone who has very high developer skills. If this is something you don't feel comfortable with, your best bet would be to reach out to a Shopify Expert directly to implement this as a small task. 

Regarding the reporting side of things. The ability to add a custom report is available from the Shopify advanced plan or above, but adding a new custom field is something which is not possible at this time. I will definitely let our team know about this and add it as a feature request on your behalf. 

All the best. Nick

Hi Andre,

For the reporting part, our app EZ Exporter can help with this.  The custom fields at checkout are normally captured in Cart Attributes (also known as "Note Attributes") or Line Item Properties.

Our app supports exporiting of both Cart Attirubtes and Line Item Properties.  Each custom cart attribute or line item property can be placed in a separate column in the CSV generated by our app.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions on this.

But the tutorial you pointed out is for adding a field to the cart not to the checkout page.

Is there a way to add a field to the checkout-page?

@EliMash There is, but only if your shop is on Plus and has access to the checkout.liquid file.
