Organizing Columns into Groups
Groups are used to organize object columns and configure how columns display for data entry. Groups are useful to logically define, group, and display values for objects that have a large amount of attributes or columns. Groups can be collapsible, and group order can be configured for groups that have already been allocated to objects.
Organizing groups into columns is a multi-step process:
*Create a group.
*Assign the group to an object.
*Assign the columns to the specific groups.
