GoldMine : Changing Data and Label Colors

Did you know that you can change both the Data and Label color of any field on the Contact Record? This can help make "required" or important fields stand out for the end user. To do this;

(You must have Master rights)

1. Right-click on the field you want to modify.

2. Select Properties, go to the Color tab.

3. Use the "Colors" button to modify the Label and/or Data color.

(Expert users will notice that they can drive these values with xBase expressions - very cool)

4. OK you way out.

One of the more popular uses of this I've seen is to turn certain labels red to make them stand out as "required"*.

* - I put required in quotes because you can also set the field properties to be truly Required, but that is not impacted by anything listed above.
