    I wanted to add one extra field to the contact i.e EducationQualification(it consist qualification,year of passing,College etc) so how can add it ..?

    one of the issues you need to think about is how "formal" you need to capture this information; the range is from

    very informal (i.e. a text blob that you could attach as a "Note" to Contacts


    very formal (e.g. each educational institution could be represented as a LegalEntity (in openCRX speak) and each enrollment of a Contact at an educational institution could be represented by a membership (with role = type of education or type of degree and enrollment duration captured with validFrom/validTo, etc.)

    with a very high probability there is no need to add any fields, i.e. simple UI customizing should be sufficient - but in order to map your requirements properly to openCRX it is important to know what information you need to capture and how you intend to use it
