Is there such a way for custom fields to be added by GUI for non-technical people?

Yes there is.

To add custom field go to:


Administration - Customization - Database Structure - Objects


Settings - Customization - Database Structure - Model

To make it available for viewing and input, go to:


Administration - Customization - User Interface - Views


Settings - Customization - User Interface - Views

You should know a little bit about XML though.

Thanks. I am checking out version 7 though and saw the developer mode. Seems to be advanced though specially for non-IT people like me. Thank you very much!
