The Detail View displays all fields available for capturing data related to the currently selected record. Double-clicking on a record on the list view grid will direct you to the detail view of that particular record.

1. Tabbed Layout

Some detail views are arranged into a tabbed layout to optimise the layout of all the available fields.

2. Detail View Nested Grids

In certain instances, it is necessary to capture multiple records of a specific field against the Detail View. In this case, you will find a grid embedded in the Detail View, allowing you capture multiple lines. For example, on the customer record detail view, there is a nested grid for Phone Numbers, allowing you to capture unlimited contact numbers for a particular customer.
