About Fields

Data collection is the cornerstone of your business processes, which depend on accurate and complete data being gathered, stored, and shared.

SBM uses field data to provide:

Fields are stored in primary and auxiliary tables, but are presented to users on forms. Users enter data into fields they submit, updated, and transition primary items, also referred to as work items.

Fields are also used to gather data for items in auxiliary tables, which support a workflow process. Typically, fields in an auxiliary table store related data, such as customer information. To help support your workflow process, you can use Single Relational and Multi-Relational fields to pull this static data into primary items.

SBM Composer provides many types of fields, most of which have sets of properties that define the behavior of the fields. These fields can be customized to meet the data collection requirements of your business process.
