Calculated contact fields
Calculated field settings
The key component of a calculated field is the formula used to calculate its value:
You can also choose the format in which the value of your calculated field will be stored:
- Calculated fields are calculated when a contact is created or modified. If the formula uses a value from a field in a different object (such as system date) and the field in the other object changes, the value in the calculated field will not change. It will only be recalculated when a contact parameter is changed that calls the Contact modified event. You must keep this in mind when you use fields from other system objects.
- Your plan determines the maximum number of calculated fields you can add.
