Selecting fields on related tables using dot-walking

Selecting fields on related tables using dot-walking

Dot-walking provides access to fields on related tables from a form, list, or script.

If the current table contains a reference to another table, any field on the referenced table can be accessed using dot-walking.

Dot-walking references a field by building a chain of field names separated by dots (periods). For instance, incident.assigned_to.company references the company of the user assigned to an incident. The recommended limit for chain length is three levels.

Updates to site content will be made starting around 4am on January 17th (Pacific Time) and lasting approximately 6 hours.  This site may be intermittently unavailable.
