TEXT ELEMENT

Text element allows to store the simple text, without borders in it and display it to the AppUser. Is usually used to deliver some info or request some info, for example Text Element can contain the greeting or the plea to provide some data. Can hold _hashtag_ reference.

For example if you want to show customer/object’s name:

  1. Create a column in Objects called Name
  2. Type in #name# to the text Property of the Element. When your customer/object logs in - the name will be shown.
