Fields allow you to collect information about an application, user, attachment or contributor. There are four different fields to choose from:
- Application field — displays on the application form
- User field — displays during registration and on a user’s profile
- Attachment field — field to go with every attachment on an attachments tab
- Contributor field — 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 dropdowns, from multi-line text input to URLs to a pre-filled Countries list, check out the Types of fields available to suit your application.
