Interfaces determine how a field's value is presented or edited. For example, a boolean value might use a Toggle, Switch, Checkbox, Pill-Box, Icon, or even a Dropdown interface.
To get started, go to Settings > Collections & Fields, choose the Collection you want to add the field to, then click "New Field". The first choice you'll make is what type of interface you want to use — which then determines/limits the subsequent setup options.
Each interface works with one or more field types. For example, the Calendar interface works with the
date type but not
boolean. The Text Input is used as a fallback since it works with most field types.
Interfaces are highly customizable with options that allow you to tailor them to individual uses. These vary depending on interface complexity, with less-common options hidden within an "Advanced" accordion.
If you need to tailor an interface to your specific needs, or want something completely different, you can create custom interface extensions. Learn more about that here.
