Adding a field group to your data model

Add a field group to your data model to store the values of a group of related fields in a Skin form — Components tab — General — Page data structure. You can then reference this field on a form to collect values from users at run time.

Add a field group to your data model to store the values of a group of related fields in a single data structure. You can then reference this field on a form to collect values from users at run time.

For example, you can capture the first name, last name, and address of a person in the Prospective Client field group.

  1. Access the data model for a data object or a case type, based on how the field will be used in your application.

    • To view fields in a data object:
      1. In the navigation panel of App Studio, click the Data Data objects and integrations .
      2. Click the name of a data object.
      3. Click the Data model tab.
    • To view fields in a case type:
      1. In the navigation panel of App Studio, click Case types.
      2. Click the name of a case type.
      3. Click the Data model tab.
      4. Optional: To display fields that are inherited by your application, click Show reusable fields.
  2. Click + Add field.

  3. Enter the name of the field group.

  4. In the Type column, select Field group from the list of options.

  5. In the Options column, select a data object from the autocomplete field.

  • Adding field groups to forms

    Save time and create comprehensive forms for your case types by categorizing related fields in a single data structure. For example, you can capture the first name, last name, and address of a person in the Prospective Client form in a single field group, instead of several individual fields.

  • Storage and display of fields
  • Creating a data object

    Use data objects to simplify the organization of the information that your application needs to process a case. For example, configure an Onboarding application to provide orientation course suggestions to new hires based on department. In the Onboarding application, a Courses data object might include fields such as Course ID, Course Title, Department, Duration, and Description.
