We've Got
The Basics Covered

We’ve got you covered with all the commonly used field types - you’ll use these on pretty much everything you do.

Start by adding Basic Fields such as Text, Date, Number, Single and Multiple Select lists, Files and Images, and more. 

Each field comes with validation - for example, if you try to enter a date in the wrong format, we’ll call you out (nicely). Maintain quality data for quality decisions.

It’s your Google Docs, Microsoft Word, WordPress editor, Evernote and more—all combined into the ultimate SmartDoc! Get in there, Hemingway...but maybe hold off on the bourbon until after hours.

Creating Connections
By Linking Solutions

Linked fields are the magic behind your workflows, creating connections between everything in the platform, so data can be shared without duplication. Relate contacts to accounts, features to products, logos to marketing materials, and on and on. Linked fields save you, so, so much time. 

Checklists make sure the details are managed

Check Off The Details
With Checklists

Like a to-do list on steroids, checklist fields allow you to create collaborative tasks lists to knock out the little details on the path to an excellent broader scope of work. 

We’re not saying you have to completely get rid of that paper notebook you’ve been building out to-do lists in, but we do offer color coding as well.

Use Sub-Items to track task details and deliverables

Sub Items: Building Blocks
To Powerful Projects

Build your projects however you would like! We know you’re going to love our field types, so we thought you’d like to build more records in your records. We offer full customization. Just select the fields to display, apply filters and sorts, link related records, and more. Great for prepping and checking off the sub items that have to be accomplished for a larger deliverable.
