Feature Improvements

Numbers Field Input Now Support Commas for Improved Readability 

■ Saving Comma-Separated Numbers Without Making Any Changes

You can input numeric values with commas as thousands separators to make it easier to read and understand.
When you copy a number with commas from elsewhere, you can paste and save it as is without deleting the commas.


The mobile view currently does not support inputting numbers separated by commas.

■ Comma Visibility on the Edit Page as Well as After Saving the Record
Before, commas were only visible on the page after saving the record, but now they can also be seen on the edit page.



  • The "Use thousands separators" option must be enabled for the comma separator to appear.
  • The comma separator is not currently displayed on the mobile view's edit page.

Quickly Open the Datasource App via Lookup Settings
You can now access the Datasource app directly from the Lookup field settings.
When setting up or reviewing the Lookup field, you can quickly check associated fields and records in the Datasource app.
