Adding or updating data for a data type

You can add or update data records for a data type by importing them from a .csv file or by using the record editor.

Note: If you are adding data to your data type for the first time and you want to import the data from a .csv file, you must configure your data type for local storage by adding the first data record in the record editor.

You can view the pages and properties that use a data type from the Data Designer.

    Note: Data records cannot be configured for cases.
  5. Enter the values for the first data record. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
  6. Click the + icon to add fields. Click the Delete icon to delete fields.
