Create a raw field

Create a raw field

A raw field is a custom field created by an administrator to show the original (raw) input in a field on a form after it has been normalized or transformed.

About this task

An administrator might add a custom field to a form to show the original, or raw, value of a normalized field.
This is a read-only field that might be called something like Raw CPU type or Original Name. In the following example, the CPU type field was normalized to Xeon from an original, raw value of Xeon L3350.
Normalized and raw fields


  1. In the form containing the field that is being normalized or transformed, right-click in the header bar.
  2. Select Personalize > Form Layout.
  3. Complete the Create new field form at the bottom of the page, and then click Add.
    • Name: Type the field label. In this case, use Raw + <field label>.
    • Type: Select a data type from the list for this field.
    • Field length: Select the character limit for this field. The default is 40.
  4. Move the new field adjacent to the normalized field using the direction arrows in the slushbucket.
  5. Click Save.
