Deleting Fields

If there are Fields that are no longer required on a Table, they can be deleted.

Fields can be deleted from the Table’s Grid View or using the Explorer.

When you delete a Field:

  • All data in the Field will be deleted.
  • The Field will be removed from all Views.
  • Any Boards which have a column grouping by this Field will show as blank screens and require reconfiguring.

    If the Field is used for row groupings, then the Board row grouping will be removed.

  • Any Saved Filters which use this Field will be deleted

    Note that any Charts which use this Saved Filter will also be removed from the Dashboard View. The Chart will still show in Builder Mode to allow you to update the configuration.

  • Any Charts which are configured to group data by this Field are removed from the Dashboard view.

    Note that the Charts will show up in Builder Mode to allow you to update the configuration.

  • If a Record Grid Chart uses this Field as one of its columns, the column will be removed.
