Defining the fields in a data object

Updated on April 5, 2022

Define fields to structure the data that a form displays. You can add fields to data objects and specify the field type, such as Picklist, Boolean, or Text (single line). For example, to include a field that displays a list of available courses in an Onboarding application, you might add a Courses field to a data object, and then select Picklist as the field type.

  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Data.

  2. Click Data objects and integrations.

  3. Click the name of a data object.

  4. Add fields by repeating the following steps for each field.

    1. On the Data model tab, click + Add field.

    2. Enter the name of the field.

    3. In the Type column, select the type of data that you want to store.

  5. Click Save.

If you plan to collect user input in this field instead of connecting to a data source, you can control how users interact with the field. For more information, see Restricting user input in a field.
