In Forest Admin, a Field is a fundamental component that defines the structure and content of your Collections. Each field represents a specific attribute or piece of information related to the records within a Collection. Fields have types, each corresponding to a specific data format, allowing for diverse representations of information. The available field types include Boolean, Date and Time, Enum, JSON, Number, String, Uuid.
Additionally, each field type can be represented by a widget, determining how the data is displayed and interacted with in the admin panel. Widgets include options such as text area, image viewer, file uploader, checkbox, and more. This combination of field types and widgets provides a flexible and customizable framework for accurately representing and interacting with data in Forest Admin. Understanding and configuring these aspects are integral to tailoring your admin panel to accurately represent the data from your underlying database tables.
