Grouped Fields

What are Grouped Fields?

Grouped fields can be used to concatenate multiple fields from a form into a single field for instance...

work_area,work_prefix,work_suffix = phone_work

This means anytime someone post either of those three fields, we will store them to your phone_work field in CAKE.

Implementing Grouped Fields

Double click on the field you want to add group fields to. This makes the field editable, once the field pops, you can input your parameter names you want to group.

*Make sure to click update to save changes.

If you wish to add multiple Grouped Fields, you will input each parameter in a comma separated list. In this example I added email_address,e_mail to the Email Address(email) field.

Grouped Fields Scenario

With group fields, you can correct mismatched post parameters.

Example: If your affiliate is posting e_mail, it would NOT be stored.

So rather than having the affiliate update their post method, you can add e_mail as a group field to correct this without any cooperation from the affiliate.
