In the Properties box of a FieldMaker field you can utilize two features that are very helpful for anyone entering data into the field. 

One property is called Tooltip. 
  • The text you place in this value will be displayed when a staff person moves the mouse over a field and hovers there. 
  • The text will pop-up. 
  • A Tooltip is helpful to explain in more detail what the field is used for.

The other property is called Help. 
  • The text you place in this value will be displayed at the bottom of the FieldMaker plus tab when the user has clicked into the field.  Help text is useful to explain what to enter and may be used to give an example for the actual data entry. 
  • For example, "Enter code x if xyz is true . . ."

Both texts could be used and have the same information, or you can put different information in each, which might be the case if a lot of help instruction is needed.
