System Fields for Primary Tables

System fields for primary tables help ensure that the process you define is followed and that correct data is gathered as items move through that process. System fields also provide greater reporting and searching benefits than custom fields. For example, only system fields are available on Multi-table reports, which let users search for information across multiple primary and auxiliary tables.

Primary table fields are created in SBM Composer. However, you can configure specific field settings for projects in SBM Application Administrator.

On the General tab of the Property Editor for system fields, [System] is appended to the field type. In the table editor, you can show the optional System column, which displays Yes for system fields and No for custom fields.

Two types of system fields are provided for primary tables: those that are required and those that are optional.
