Add, edit and manage fields of data list

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

In a data list, the columns which are called fields hold individual pieces of data that make up a record.Fields display data and help you categorize, group and track information.


The fields management will be your first-step to build a data list. Yeeflow offers a quick way to add and edit fields.

Refer to the intro of fields before your starting. 

When you created a new list, the "Title" field will be created automatically by default.


1. Add Field(s)

Click the New column button, you can add more fields per required and you can see a right pop-up windows.

Define the field type firstly then set up the corresponding properties. Please note that once you finish setting the field properties, it's not allowed to change the field to another type which is completely different. E.g. A text box can be changed to a Text Area, but can not be changed to a number/currency...


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.

  • "Unique Value" means that duplicated value is not allowed if it's ON.

  • "Placeholder" will be displayed when it's blank.

  • "Multiple" means you can add one and more values in this field.

  • "Required" means that it will be mandatory to fulfill if it's on the form.

  • "Add to Index" is important and a must to turn on if this field will be a conditional basis.


2. Edit Field(s)

Normally we have 2 functions to take a quick edit as below:

2.1 Single Edit
