      When we have Group and record belonging to the Group, then Group must be first. after that record on the same line.
      Example: Sales Order line: Product group, next field is Product.
  • Element Description and Help must be ALWAYS filled
    • description is a short phrase describing the usage of the field
    • help is a long description trying to explain the functionality. Help should anticipate what trouble the user is having. Help can describe some example and also include tips to avoid troubles.
  • When adding a column, verify that the element description and help is correct for the column you're adding - if it's not then you must add a new element
