Managing Global Attributes


Navigate to: Admin > Global Attributes

Global attributes are custom data attributes that can be created and assigned to various entities (User, Store, and Account) in Znode. Znode comes with many default Global Attributes to get the store off the ground. Using this module, the Administrator can create/edit/delete attributes that can be used in User, Account, and Store entities. 

In the Manage Forms section of the CMS, Administrators can create custom forms that use the Global Attributes to build the individual parts of a form. Attribute Types determine what type of input to accept and, ultimately, how users will interact with the form and what data is collected. Attributes can be grouped together to better organize the form.
