Edit link field


Via relation links, a dropdown field can be created in which a data record from another module can be selected (linked).

As soon as a relation link field is created, the module to be linked ("relation") must first be selected.
Next, at least one "Relations Name" must be selected.
Relation names are the values ​​of the fields of the relation that are displayed in the dropdown window.
If, for example, a "customer" is linked to a "company", it makes sense to select at least the company name as the relation name.

Links are the same as relation link fields, only that several elements of the linked module can be selected here (multi-selection dropdown).

# User selection

Users can be selected and linked. It can be a single or multiple selection. If necessary, selected users will be informed by email about the link to a data record.

# Slider


Sliders are simple checkboxes through which truth values​​ (true / false) can be set.
These are shown in the list view with a red X or a green tick.

# Option group


Option groups form several checkboxes through which, however, only a maximum of one value can be selected.

# Define elements

As soon as an option group is created, the selectable elements (checkboxes) must first be defined.
These are created by clicking on "Elements" in the pop-up window that appears by clicking on "+".
Several elements for German ("de") and English ("en") language can be created.
