A data field is the basic unit of a data list. Each field in a data list or form holds an individual piece of that data.

Adding a field

To add a field (column) to your data list, simply scroll as far right as you can on your data list, then click the "+ New column" button. Note that we only support manually adding one field at a time.

Select the type of data that will be stored in the new field. Give the new field a descriptive name. Then set the properties related to this field, and click "Save" bottom to save your settings. You should now be able to see the new field in your data list.

You can also add a new field by clicking on a field header, then selecting the "Insert left" or "Insert right" option.

Note: if you do not have creator permissions, you will not be able to add any new fields.

Different field types have different properties for settings, you can refer to this article to check introductions for different filed types: Control and fields. Besides, there are some common properties among different fields.
