The columns in the Cloud Sheet directly mirrors the entry fields in the Orca Scan app, so we can remotely control which fields to appear in the connected devices. 

First thing first, we need to right-click the column that we want to modify, just as you see above.

Column types

Each column has different attributes. Number fields has plus/minus buttons and some of them has the auto generation feature like date, time, and GPS.

Column Settings

The settings and rules that we can apply to the fields control how they should behave inside the mobile app.

Readonly—allows us to restrict users from modifying the values in that given field. We might not want them to modify the lot number that we've already imported. 

Required—allows us to force the users to fill out the given field and make sure that the information we need is collected. 

Autofocus—let us decide where the keystroke marker should first lay focus after a scan. 

Auto select value—let us select the value to delete, replace, or copy quickly.  

Use value in list — Let’s us determine what the app will display in our list of items.
