Understand field name and field link name
- When a user accesses it from a web browser:
The field link name is the name with which a field is internally referred by Zoho Creator. It can contain letters of the English alphabet in both lower and upper case, numbers and underscore ( _ ). The first character in the field link name must be a letter. The field link name is unique for fields in a form, i.e., there cannot be more than one field in a form with the same field link name.
You will need to use a field's link name when you:
- Refer that field in a workflow that triggers a custom process
- Set values to fields (as query string in your form's permalink) when a user accesses your form to submit an entry
- Filter records displayed by a report by passing a criteria (as query string in that report's permalink)
