A list is a collection of data that is relatively permanent. It comprises reusable items that are referenced in other modules such as forms, works, customers, and employees.

Lists and List items are two different kinds of entities.

  • A list is a template where you can define the fields or data elements.
  • List items or records are the individual instances where you can define one or more fields/values to capture data.
Note: Even though lists are commonly referred to as masters and both the terms are interchangeable, in this document, the pre-defined lists bundled along with the product are referred to as masters, and the user-defined list templates are simply referred to as lists.
