When creating a new collection, some fields are automatically assigned to your items. These can also be customized in the collection settings.


Editing field properties

To edit the field properties, open the collection settings by clicking on the collection name within your open collection. Then select "Fields" in the "General" section. 



The primary field in Zenkit is always a text field (for example title or notes). It is used as the name or title of an item. It appears on top of an item in the details view. Each text field can be set as a primary field.



Various actions are available for each field. Within a project, you can use bulk actions to adjust the field of all items or duplicate the field. Some fields offer an additional option.


You can also use label fields as headers for Kanban lists.



For date fields, decide whether to include time by default, add the current date to new items, or highlight overdue due dates.

Default reminders can be added to date fields.



With member fields, you can choose to allow members to add additional users or to use the field as a kanban list header.



Additionally, for number fields, select the default value and specify a format.



Similarly, for subitem fields, you can choose to display the path, allow selection of existing items, and allow tasks to be linked by default.



With reference fields, decide whether to allow the creation of new items, selection of new items, and the referenced collection.
