What is…

What is a data field? What data fields are available in the visual template editor?

Data fields are information that the GT Backend makes available to the visual label editor during the label generation process. This represents all of the possible information from your GlobalTill database than can be used for printing.

With product labels for example, data fields are product attributes (such as brand, SKU, size, category) that you can use to create your custom label.

Fields and Lists

There are two types of data fields you can use in the visual template editor, fields and lists. Fields represent a single piece of data, for example the product name or category. Lists represent multiple pieces of data, for example, product images or product barcodes. Because each product can have more than one image or barcode, there is a special way that we need to access them in the editor using a container.
