I have autodiscover working in my environment, however, I want my multi-tenant users to be able to utilize it.  So..  Since all of my DNS records are for my domain how to do I add it to theirs?  I assume I create autodiscover.customerdomain.com to their public DNS records.. But..  what do I have to do on my end?

SRV records are designed for this.
Otherwise you would need an SSL certificate with all of the tenants Autodiscover host names on it, which can get out of hand very quickly.

I created a SRV record on GoDaddy... Everything seemed okay except what do I name it?  I know everything else.. Just not sure about the name field.

Below are the fields and what put in each field.. Just not sure about the name field.

service: _autodiscover
protocol: _tcp
priority: 0
weight: 0
port number: 443
target: autodiscover.mydomain.com

As long as you don't have autodiscover.example.com in the same domain (so you are putting the SRV records in to the other domains to point to the primary) then what you have is correct.
