Business Background

Use the Metadata options to more accurately and efficiently categorize relevant data. There are different metadata options available per element, and the options will help track information provided for the input fields.

Titan Solution

Please see the below table for some Metadata examples and how they are used in Titan Web.

Name Use
Field ID A unique Field ID is automatically assigned for each element. This also assists with mapping.
Parent ID The Parent ID is the Field ID of the element, which contains the current element.
A basic element, such as a strip, which has no parent element, will not contain a parent ID.
Type The type of the element is shown here, for instance, Text, Input Fields, or Button.
Tag Tags are used to internally identify elements. Tagging an element is highly recommended since tags help identify the element in Salesforce mapping, conditions, layer list and search.
Comment Comments can be used to explain, to anyone with access to your project, the meaning of the element. Comments are optional.
