Adding catalogue fields in individual entries

Is there a way to enable a user to add additional fields to a catalogue entry at the time of creation? (For example, if by default the catalogue just has one "image" field, how can I enable the user to add another?)

Thanks in advance.

Hi back!

Don't think this is possible without giving permissions to the user to modify the catalogue itself which I don't think is your goal as you've described. Please correct me if I'm wrong here.

What you could do is create a mandatory image field/item for example then create a few more optional entry fields so the option is available. Then, with a little customizing of the catalogue template you can have it only show the fields that are populated.
