This is a numeric field type. Its main use is to capture simple numerical values with no special formatting. If you need to have a field for a currency or a percentage, it is best to use those fields instead. You can learn more about them in the following tutorials:
Configuring a Number Field
Give your field a name and add a field hint if desired. You can then select the section in which the field will be created or keep the default option.
The field type must be set to 'Number'.
If desired, you can set a default value for all new records. Team members will have the option to override the default value if needed.
You can use the format mask to change the way the information is presented on your number field to look like currency, percentages, times, or even plain old numbers with decimal places, thousands, and abbreviations, these are the available options:
|1460||0 a||1 k|
Here is an example:
To remove the decimals of a number and add a thousand separators, 10000.23, you will need to input 0,0 in the format mask field. The result will be 10,000.
Even though it is a number field, it also accepts Time values. If you want to add a formatting mask for them, you have the following options:
Number fields can also be calculated. Just enable the 'Calculated' checkbox and add your custom code in the space available for it.
Enable the 'Required' checkbox if the information for this field is mandatory. It means that if you enable this option, every time a team member creates a new record, they will need to input a number for this field in order to save it.
If you enable the 'Lock After Create' as its name implies, the field will be locked once the new record is saved and the value of the field will not be editable afterward.
Once you are done setting your field, click the save button.
Note: All new fields are added at the bottom of the form.
