Features

You can perform the following customizations with respect to the user experience of the currency field on a form:

Setting the currency type and display format

The Currency type property refers to the currency associated with the currency field, such as USD, EUR, AED. When your users access the currency field in a form or report, the corresponding currency's symbol is displayed. For example, when you set Currency type as United States Dollar (USD), the $ (dollar) symbol will appear in the currency field. Learn how to set the currency type

The Display format property refers to the format in which this field's data will be displayed in. Learn how to set the display format

  • In forms, your users will be able to enter formatted data in the currency field. When they enter unformatted data, its display format will automatically be applied.
  • In reports, the currency field data will be displayed as per its display format.
  • The display format will also be applied when you print a report or record, or export them as a PDF or HTML file.
  • When currency field’s Display format property is set with the value Default:
    • No formatting will be applied when your users enter data in the currency field
    • Formatting based on your user’s web browser’s language or mobile device’s locale, will be applied when your users view currency field data in reports

When you add a currency field to your form, its currency type and display format properties are set with appropriate values:

  • The Currency type is selected based on the Country set in your Zoho account’s profile. For example, currency type will be set as United States Dollar (USD) when the country’s United States of America; Euro (EUR) when France.
  • The Display format is selected based on the currency type. For example, the format 1,234,567.89 will be applied for USD; format 1.234.567,89 for EUR.

Setting the maximum number of digits and decimal points

  • The Max digits field property defines the maximum number of digits your users can enter in the currency field. Everything your users enter in the currency field: the negative sign, the digits before the decimal point, the decimal point, and the digits after it, will be counted and validated by the Max Digits value of that field.
