The Field Editor provides a full-fledged editing tool for creating or editing fields. All options for creating and editing are available on corresponding tabs, and the Fields summary page enables sorting by scope and showing or hiding fields by inactive or active status.
Creating a New Field
To create a field with the Field Editor:
|1. Click the Database icon in the main navigation and select Fields|
2. Click New Field. The New Field popup appears.
The most commonly used configurations are shown on the Details tab.
Editing an Existing Field
To edit an existing field:
|1. Click the Database icon in the main navigation and select Fields.|
2. Select the desired form. The Edit Field popup appears.
3. Modify the configuration settings as desired.
When editing an existing form, note that the Scope, ID, Field Type, and Prompt values are not editable. This prevents changing field information that can be referenced by other parts of the Slate instance and inadvertently corrupting your data.
4. When finished editing the field, click Save.
If you have administrative access, an Unlock link appears in the lower right of the popup. Selecting the link causes a warning message to appear, notifying you of the risk of data corruption.
