The custom table (CUT) field type allows you to track multiple records within a permit or license and makes your data easier to view. Just like an excel table, you define the columns of data you want to collect, and your constituents can enter as many rows as they need. This field type is an elegant replacement for the ‘How many of X’ questions that trigger X number of additional questions to display when a number is provided.
A CUT field is a custom table within a table. It will give you greater access to track multiple records within a permit or license and make your data easier to view.
Here's an example of a standard field that tracks multiple records. First you select the number of items and then you fill out the fields for those items.
Here's an example of a CUT field that allows the same data to be gathered more efficiently.
Are you ready to get started adding CUT tables to your licenses and permits? Submit a support request and our team will work with you to identify the fields you'd like to convert to a custom table.
We'll convert the fields in our test environment first so you can see how they look and work. Once you're ready, we'll make the final conversion on your live data. Thanks for watching and stay tuned for next month's feature video.
