Designing supporting document

Figure 1: Supporting document field properties

Supporting document field properties description

ID
is a unique field name. It may consist of letters and numbers, but must start with a letter.

It shall not contain spaces or special characters (e.g. hyphens, punctuation).

It shall be recorded in the database as a column name and shall not be visible to the user. Fields on the cover sheet must not have the id ‘ID’.

It is intended for integration, the back-end program reaches the value of this field in the cover sheet for the document it is processing via the Id.

Example: for Invoice reception date we can use: INV_REC_DATE

You can translate each caption to desired language. Click on 3 dots on the right to translate caption to any language in the system.
