TaskIDMatchField is primary key of tasks. It is not necessarily required visible on the layout.
But if you want to see it just change to layout mode (Cmd-L), assure field picker to be visible (Cmd-K) and drag it from picker to layout. Back to browse mode (Cmd-B) and thats it!
Thanks. I can now see the active field and the #s, but I'm still a bit confused about the purpose of the matching fields. The portals/tables on this layout don't seem to connect or serve a purpose as far as connecting relational data... unless you create a Find, then I can see the point.... I'm not explaining my point correctly.... usually I've used portals on a table to link related data from another table... I don't see where the Tasks Starter Solution portals employ that. Maybe I'm missing something again?
Let's start with this question: What is the purpose of the TaskIDMatchField in this Starter Solution? Could it function the same without? Thanks.
Task ID match field is used to link a task record to:
- Assignees in the assignee table
- Other tasks in the tasks table
- attachments in the attachments table
On the Task Details layout, you have a portal to Assignees and a portal to Related Tasks. Both use the Task ID Match field but in different ways.
