What is the difference between Custom Fields and Custom Forms?

Custom fields are basically an element inside a custom form and are displayed throughout the system for informational purposes. 

Therefore it’s smart to first create required Custom Fields and then create Custom Forms after wards.

Where can I find Custom Fields inside the Forms Creator?

Custom fields are always stored inside the same type. You decide the object type already while creating the custom field. The corresponding type can be found inside the Forms creator. If you create a field with the type device, the created custom field device will be displayed under device.

  1. Click on the plus button  right next to the search bar to add a new custom field.
  2. Decide if your field should be visible after creation with the Active toggle.
  3. Insert a Custom field name for the custom field – the following criteria must be fulfilled:
  • Special characters are not allowed
  • Field names cannot contain the null character (also not the spaces)
  • You are not allowed to divide the name with dots
  • Max. length: 120 characters
  1. Select the object, where your custom field should appear, you have the choice between the objects described further below.
  2. You can now select between the custom field types described below.
  3. (Optional) While you setup your custom fields you have various Input field settings, depending on the field type you selected.
  4. (Optional) You can also add translations to other languages for your custom fields and info messages by hitting the corresponding Add label translation button.
    Deleting translations is always possible with the trash bin button.
  5. Click Save.
