Customizing data fields

You can customize the options for a data field to suit your needs. For example, you might want to specify that a field must always be filled in, i.e. that it’s a Required field. Simply store this in the field settings.

In the same way, you can specify the

  • minimum or maximum length for an entry,

  • add general information, or

  • specify who should be able to see (or not see) a field.


In our example, let’s configure the Venue choice field as follows:

  • The field should be a Required field, i.e. it needs to be filled in.

  • You want it to be shown as a radio button.

  • You would like to add a Tooltip.

  • You would like to provide a list with a choice of 4 options.


Click Venue in the table settings. The field settings for the venue, a choice field, open.

Making a field a Required field

  1. Open the field settings.

  2. Under Required in the field settings, select Yes.

Showing the choice field as a radio button

  1. Open the field settings.

  2. Under Show as, click Radio buttons.

Adding a Tooltip

  1. Open the field settings.

  2. Click More options.

  3. Add your Tooltip (here: “Select the event location”)

Adding choice options

We’ve created the venue as a Choice field. Therefore, we will now add various options to the field, which you can then choose from.

You can, of course, add as many options as you like, but we will limit ourselves to 4 in the example.

  1. Open the field settings.

  2. Click + New option.

  3. Add an option and confirm by pressing Enter.

  4. Repeat point 2 and 3 until you have entered all 4 options.

  5. When you’re finished, click OK to return to the table settings.

  6. Click Save to save all your customizations to the table.

In the example, we’ve named the rooms after cities: Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, and Munich.

When you’ve finished editing, click OK to return to the table settings. Click Save there so that your changes aren’t lost!


After saving the changes, your table should now look like this:

Before we take a look at how to enter data, we’d like to show you a few more options for displaying the Choice field.
