You can customize the label of any system field globally, across all forms and data views, or locally, for a particular view. For fields of the Reference type, you can also configure a filtering condition that list items must satisfy to be displayed in the field.
To customize a system field’s label:
Go to General > Fields > [Object Class].
Alternatively, you can access fields of a particular object class under Workflow and Business Logic (Workflow and Workflow and Business Logic > [Module] > [Object Class] > Fields) .
Double-click the system field whose label you want to customize. The Field Properties window appears. The window has two tabs:
TIP: To access classification and reference tables, go to Classification and Reference Tables (General > Fields > Miscellaneous > Classification and Reference Tables) . To access fields of Activity Log records, go to Miscellaneous > Object Activity (General > Fields > Miscellaneous > Object Activity) . To view all fields in the database, go to All Fields (General > Fields > Miscellaneous > All Fields > By Table Name/By Field Name/List) .
The General tab contains all field's properties, including its customizable label;
The Usage tab displays the list of workflow items and components (such as Actions, Forms, Functions, Macros, etc.) that use this system field, i.e. have placeholders for this field's value.
If you want to change the field label globally (both on forms and in data views), type in a new label in the Custom Label field and proceed to the Step 6.
NOTE: If you have already modified this field label on a particular data view level, the global change will not affect such modifications. To view or change the field label on a data view level, proceed to the next step.
If you want to change the field label on object forms or in a particular data view containing the field, click Advanced. The list of data views is displayed. Do one of the following:
To use the default label in a particular view, clear the Label field in the respective row.
To change the label for a particular view, type in a new caption in the Label field in the respective row.
To change the label in object forms only, type in a new label in the Custom Label field above and clear all of the Label fields for all views.
For Reference fields, which appear on an object Full Form as drop-down lists where the user can select a single value, you can specify a filtering condition that drop-down list items must satisfy to be displayed in the field. To do this, click the Filter button . The Build Expression window opens. There, you can choose a filter template and assign values to its parameters. Alternatively, you can enter your custom filtering expression in the form of a SQL “WHERE” clause.
NOTE: This filter applies only to the object Full Form. For fields that are displayed on Action Forms, you can specify a separate filter. For more information, see Form Field window - Filter.
Click Save on the Standard toolbar.
