How to group custom fields


How can you group custom fields - Field Groups and Categories

If you create a custom field you will see the fields tab when you create an article or a contact or a third party extension that supports custom fields. Do you want to create many fields and want to make everything clear? Then you should classify the fields into groups and categories.

You can assign a field to a field group and apply it to all categories

If you do assign a field group but no category to your field, it appears when you create a new article or create a new contact in the tab of the field group. It appears regardless of the assignment of a category.

If you do assign no field group but a category to your field, it appears when you create a new article or create a new contact in the tab "Fields". But it appears only if the article belongs to the category. If you create an article in other category you do not see a tab for managing custom fields.
