Sometimes you don’t want to set entity Name manually, but assemble it from several other fields. For example, for an Interview, you want to have a Name that consists of Contact Name and Interview Date.

There is a special action for an entity “Generate Name using Formula”. Click … in entity view and find it. Here is the flow:

2020-12-09 15.35.08

Note 🚨🚨: When you create a formula for Name, it will update all entities of this Database, so be careful.

You can convert the auto-generated Name field back to a usual Text field if you want - but it will not bring back previous values.
