Type represents data you want to have in Fibery: Task, Feature, Project, Vacation, Meeting, Asset, etc. Imaging that Type is a template with some data stored in Fields.
Fibery can’t work with just tables, like Excel. To add something into Fibery you have to have Type for that. For example, if you want to add some products with details like Name, Effort, Risk, etc, it is required to create Product Type in some App and add the relevant Fields.
