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 and each list on the SharePoint Server has its own specific set of fields. You may add any field from this set. If this document library or list requires a set of mandatory fields, these fields will be assigned to the document or list item anyway. If the user has not specified the values of mandatory fields, they will be set to the default values specific to the document library or list.

Option Description
Name Enter field name manually or click the browse button (...) to select one of the fields specific to the document library or list in the opened Select Field dialog box. 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 or list, the error will occur at run time and the routed document or list item will be rejected.
Multiple values Select this check box if you want to enter multiple values for this field.
Note: There are four types of the fields where you can enter multiple values: Multiple lines of text, Choice, Lookup and Person or Group.

You may check this box only if there is no connection to the server at configuring. If the connection is established, then the component enters the values itself, depending on whether multiple values are possible for the working field on the server and disables Multiple values check box.

Value Enter field value either manually or click the browse button (...) to select one of values specific to this field in the opened Select Field Value dialog box.
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, 06-20-2010 or Jun, 20, 2010.

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.
