Zoho Creator Field Types

Zoho Creator supports 24 different types of fields. Each field type can accept a certain "type" of data. For example, a Date field type will accept a date value. An email field type will accept an email address. The different field types are displayed on the left, and can be dragged and dropped onto the Form editor. Each field type has its own set of properties that can be configured to suit your requirement.
