Documentation for Attribute Data Type Inference

on 02 Oct 2018

Hey, on this learning material https://www.outsystems.com/learn/lesson/874/modeling-data/

I attached the slide with "Attribute Data Type Inference" title which is very handy when creating entity/attributes. I haven't been able to find the specific documentation about that.

I suggest to have a specific doc about this so it can be referenced easily without going thru the whole PDFs/Videos from the Learning Path.

Would indeed be great to have this documented (including the bug that makes "Adress" a list of address :)).

Somehow the idea has zero likes, which shouldn't be possible. Reported to OS.

Perhaps I should explain it more obvious in the first place :p instead of just attaching the slide screenshot.

"Attribute Data Type Inference" is the feature of OutSystems to automatically suggest an attribute datatype according to the keyword name (ie. *Time, *Date, *On, Is*, Has*, etc.)

On our radar

Hello Imelda Nugraha,

Thank you so much for your idea. I’m marking this as “on our radar” since we think that our users would benefit from this. Still no date for a delivery, but we’ll keep an eye on it.

Best regards,
