Fields allow you to collect information about an application, a user, an attachment, or a contributor. There are four different field resources to choose from:
- Application fields — display on the application form
- User fields — display during registration and on a user’s profile
- Attachment fields — field to go with every attachment on an attachments tab
- Contributor fields — field to go with every contributor on contributor tab
Important: for some field types, once data has been entered to a particular field via the entry form or during registration, the field resource and field type can no longer be changed. These field types are checkbox, checkbox list, content, date, date-time, file upload, and table. You’ll need to create the field again and delete the original one.
Depending on the information you need to collect, there are numerous types of fields to choose from. Ranging from checkboxes and drop-downs, from a multi-line text input to URLs to a pre-filled countries list, check out the Types of fields available to suit your application.
