Add/Edit Field Dialog Box

In this dialog box you can add a new field to the fields list or edit the properties of the selected field.

Each document library has its own specific set of fields. You may add any field from this set. If this folder requires a set of mandatory fields, these fields will be assigned to the document anyway. If the user does not specify the values of mandatory fields, they will be set to the default values specific to the folder.

Option Description
Name Enter the field name either manually or select the name from the drop-down list of the fields specific to the document library. The names of the mandatory fields are marked off with '*'.
Note: You can enter any custom field name, but if the entered name is not specific to this document library, the document will not be routed and an error message will appear.

The components supports only the following types of fields:

  • Single line of text
  • Choice
  • Number
  • Currency
  • Date and Time
  • Yes/No
  • Person/Group
  • Hyperlink
Value Enter field value either manually or select it from the drop-down list of the values specific to this field.
Note: If the specified field points to a user, you can enter the value of this field in one of the following forms:
  • Login name, for example, mydomaincom\johns or johns;
  • Display name, for example, John Smith;
  • E-mail, for example, johns@mydomain.com.

If the specified field points to a date, you can enter the value of this field in one of the server locale supported date formats; for example, 06-20-2007 or Jun, 20, 2007.

If the specified field points to a hyperlink, you can enter the value of this field in one of the following forms:

  • <http://somelink> or <https://somelink>
  • [http://somelink] or [https://somelink]
  • http://somelink or https://somelink

You can use one or several available RRTs to create field values.

Note: You cannot use ~SPS::Counter~ to set the value of the schema.
