  • Phone field in custom entity

    Hi I've created several new entities but I can't add any phone (with the work, home, mobile options...) or email fields in thoses.
    Is there any way to add them?

    Hello
    If you create entity with type Company or Person - these fields are included.
    These fields are not available for creation in Entity Manager.
    You can do it only manually.
    use application/Espo/Modules/Crm/Resources/metadata/entityDefs/Account.json (or Contact.json) as example

          Do not copy all the file, because it contains own relations

                  I'm trying to do this with Opportunity, I Inserted the code the json file in the custom folder accordingly but the email field is not working.
                  I have cleared the backend cache, my local cache and restarted apache just to make sure to no avail. Not sure what I am missing.

                  "emailAddress": { "type": "email" },

                    The path of your file? Is json valid? Did you Rebuild EspoCRM in Administration?

                      I did the rebuild and restarted apache. I also had to remove the email field had originally created before finding this post.

                    I'm also trying this and running into a little trouble. I have defined two new fields on my custom entity and manually changed the type in the JSON file:

                    "leadDeliveryPhone": {
                    "type": "phone",
                    "typeList": ["Mobile", "Office", "Home", "Fax", "Other"],
                    "defaultType": "Mobile",
                    "required": false
                    },
                    "leadDeliveryEmail": {
                    "type": "email",
                    "required": false
                    }

                    The UI renders the fields properly but when I try to submit an edit nothing gets saved on the back end and there are no errors. No data has been put in entity_phone_number for this entity. Is it perhaps required that I call the fields emailAddress and phoneNumber for this to work correctly?

                      It looks like that might have been it -- when I use emailAddress and phoneNumber as the names it works fine. I'll work around this with labels, but it does appear you can only have a single email or phone field on an entity because of this. That won't get in my way but might be worth improving.
