Add existing default fields to other records


On the employee record there is a Department field. I would like to add this same field to other records such as Project records. Is there a way to edit and add this field to other records? Or must I create a new custom field that mimics this existing Department field?

Do you have a solution in mind?

Create a new custom entity field.  Type =list/record. List/Record = Department. Apply o project.  Make sure to Display on a subtab or it will default to custom tab.

Right, I know that is an option.

Per my question, I’m wondering if there’s a way to add the existing default field to another record instead of creating a duplicate custom field.

No.  You can only do that to custom fields.

Go to the created field and under the Apply section choose the record. Once you have done that Edit the record and make sure you actually locate the field and position accordingly to where you need it. Usually it would hide under the custom tab.
