It's time for another new feature in 14, a global variable field.


This would be a global variable as we have now, but it would act like a field on a layout. Users could enter data into the global variable field as they would any field but instead of data in a table it's just a global variable. Imagine that we wouldn't need to create one or more global fields in the schema for:

  • ui value list pickers
  • temp data from a dialog box
  • any element now where we need to capture temporary user input.


Now if we can get the engineers to make it so!
