Calculated Field

The calculated field is created by using a formula. The value of these fields is constant or depends on other fields. They cannot be changed from the edit screen


The currency field holds values for the currency. It is a numeric field that allows two decimal places to be entered (i.e., 120.00)


A date field shows up with a calendar icon. It can be clicked to select a date to insert into the field. Dates can also be added manually to the field using the “mm/dd/yyyy” format. Date fields are validated to ensure that actual date is entered.

Date Time

A date/time field is similar to a date field, with the addition of a time selector dropdown list.


A text field in which an email address is typed. It is validated to ensure that an email address is correctly entered.


A number that contains a decimal point. This field is validated to ensure only numeric value is entered.
