Custom Entities Screen & Options
In clicking the Custom Entities button, you will be given the following screen:

Setting the Name will then auto-populate the other boxes in red. The Description is also free text. Best practice is to use it to describe the purpose of the custom object.
The Load Dynamically check box will mean that once you save, it will allow you to interact with the table.
NOTE: The distinction between UserData and Permanent is around the full functionality of the table. UserData allows you to make sure that you have configured your object to have all of the requirements you have. Best practice is to use 'UserData' until you are happy with everything, then commit to the database.
