Overview

 It's quick & easy to build data schema in TitanCMS!  To help you get started, below are some questions to help you to think of what you might need for your new data site. Planning is key to make the building fun!

Steps
  1. Review the schema checklist to help determine what information you will need before you start building.
  2. For your data site, what information would you liked to gather?
  3. In what format do you need this information?
  4. Using the quick chart of columns & connections determine which piece of information is suited for which column type?
  5. Suggestions:
    1. Determine if the column should be linked to a Titan Property field and auto fill.  (Suggested connections)
      1. NOTE:  The Data Table and the data file must be configured with a column for the primary Name of the data record. We recommend using a column that is linked to either the "Workstation Name" or "Page Name" property. If not linking to an existing property, any column with a Data Upload Heading containing the word "Name" will suffice.
  6. Determine what Data Upload Heading or Label to use for the name that users will see in the Workstation and/or on the website.
  7. As you build the columns, there will be options available to configure that are used in blocks:
    1. Which columns will be for workstation only edit?
    2. Which columns will be for display only?
    3. Which columns will be for sorting?
  8. As you build the columns, provide help text in the Default Description section.  This information is accessible through the question mark in the workstation for users entering data records.
