Add Additional Fields to the Time Layout

This Time object includes a customized Visualforce page that cannot be modified using standard page layout additions.  So to add a field to the Time object, you will need to utilize the fieldSet capability. 

Time has 2 fieldSets:

  1. fieldSet_Time
    • Used to add any custom field to the Time object.
  2. fieldSet_TimeRate
    • Used to add only these three fields related to Rates:
      1. Rate
      2. Rate Amount
      3. Total Amount

Please take note:

The same field should not be added to both fieldSets and fields from other related objects should not be added to the fieldsets.

Add a Field to a Field Set

To add field to field set:

Navigate to one of the following options on the FieldSets related list for the time object - by clicking Edit link on the left.
