Fields
Fields offer Pipeliner users the opportunity to add detailed information to the Entities - for example, Account Name, Address, Website, Phone numbers for Accounts and Opportunity Name, Close Date, Value for Opportunities. Learn more about how to manage fields in Pipeliner
Manage fields in Administration -> Fields & Forms -> Select Entity -> FieldsS
To view fields inside Pipeliner Interface, you need to move the field to the Entity form.
System & Custom Fields
System fields are automatically included in Pipeliner. These fields can´t be deleted.
Custom fields are defined by business/user. The business can create the fields based on their needs in the Administration.
Field Properties
  • Api Field Name - API name of the field. When working with API this is the name of the field, that you will use in the request/response
  • Type - Pipeliner supports several field types (dropdowns, date fields, line inputs etc.)
  • Field name - Name of the field in the Pipeliner Application

Creating & Updating Custom Fields
