Mapped vs. Unmapped Fields

Mapped Fields

A mapped field is connected to a corresponding field on a record in Slate.  This connection is made by selecting from the "System Field" drop down in a form field.

Unmapped Fields

An unmapped field is not connected to a corresponding field on a record in Slate.  When submitted, the data will not be stored back to a record, but will be stored on the form submission.

Form Fields

Form fields are data points collected on a form; these can be text boxes, prompt-driven lists, addresses, or many other types of data. Unmapped form fields can capture data that is not essential within the larger context of the person record as they will not store back to the record. Form fields mapped to system fields will be stored back on the associated record.
