In Steedos, fields (also known as columns) are the fundamental elements for storing data within custom or standard objects. Each field has a specific type, which defines the kind of data it can store, such as numbers, text, dates, or relationship links.
📄️ Field Attributes
Each field has a set of properties that define the behavior and appearance of the field:
📄️ Basic Field Types
Steedos supports many different field types. Pick the right type, or convert an existing one.
📄️ Auto Number Field
Automatically assigns a unique number to each record. The maximum length of any auto-number field is 30 characters, 20 of which are reserved for prefix or suffix text.
📄️ Roll-Up Summary Field
A roll-up summary field calculates values from related records, such as those in a related list. You can create a roll-up summary field to display a value in a master record based on the values of fields in a detail record. The detail record must be related to the master through a master-detail relationship. For example, you want to display the sum of invoice amounts for all related invoice custom object records in an account’s Invoices related list. You can display this total in a custom account field called Total Invoice Amount.
📄️ Object Relationship Fields
Create relationships to link objects with each other, so that when your users view records, they can also see related data. For example, link a custom object called Bugs to cases to track product defects that are associated with customer cases.
