January 2017


Early in January we released summary fields. This new field type can be found on the form builder, and allows you to view summarized data about related child records, within the grid as well as on an individual record.

You can get the count, sum, average, minimum, maximum, or median for any field in a set of child records, including on a set of filtered child data. This field acts like any other column in Zengine - you can sort, filter, group, export, save it in a view, and even summarize it!
