How can I add an “other custom field”into a form.
I need to add an “other custom field”, an inbound shipment-related field to a custom form.
I can find a way to apply to a form as this is not an item field.
You can only add ITEM FIELDS to that form (because it is an item Form which is made for recording ITEM Records)
Customization > List, Records & Fields > Item Fields
you cant add OTHER RECORD Fields there, see screenshot that there is no option to apply OTHER RECORD Fields to ITEM RECORDS.
One way to not get confused on how to add fields to a specific form, is to load the Form itself, and on the top right hover to CUSTOMIZE, there is an option to ADD NEW FIELD. It will redirect you the appropriate page.
if you meant OTHER RECORD FIELDS… they are automatically applied to the RECORD TYPE that you choose
this is usually the first option you would see if you are configuring OTHER RECORD FIELDS.
You can additionally control the fields that shows up on your forms, through the CUSTOMIZE FORM page
Yes, it’s an “Other record field” I created a field called (expected receipt date). This is the one I need to include in a form.
“Other Record Fields” are meant for record types that falls outside Items/Transactions/Entity
Each “Form” have a corresponding record type.
You must know the corresponding record type for the form, and apply/configure the OTHER FIELD to show on that record type.
Can you share the record type, or the form that you are targeting?
For example, in the screenshot above, it is clear that the Form highlighted is for the type called INBOUND SHIPMENT.
I really appreciate your answer. Well, back to the drawing table then.
