Adding Additional Fields to the Time Layout

In order to add additional fields, to the Time objects layout, you will need to utilize the fieldSet capability.

* This is because Time object includes a customized Visualforce page that can not be modified using standard page layout additions.

There are 2 fieldSets in Time with our package:

  1. fieldSet_Time
  2. fieldSet_TimeRate

One thing users need to make sure is that, they should not add "same" field to both FieldSets and they should "not" add fields from other related objects into the fieldset.

FieldSet [1], is used to add any custom field which user has added to Time and want it shown on our VF page.

FieldSet [2], is used to add only these three fields related to Rates: (Rate, Rate Amount, Total Amount).

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.

  • fieldSet_Time
  • fieldSet_TimeRate

FieldSet [Time], is used to add "any" custom field which user has added to Time and want it shown on our VF page.  FieldSet [TimeRate], is used to add "only" these three fields related to Rates: (Rate, Rate Amount, Total Amount).
