Figure 3: Fields used for table identification in GenioWeb.

In Figure 2 and Figure 3 you can the see the following fields:

a. Table / Table Identifier is a unique 5 capital letters text field in the development environment. It will be used in the creation of the Table name of the Database of the developed system, unless you filled DB table field.
b. Domain is a field that only exists on Genio backoffice and represents the "type of table" you are creating in terms of intern organization of the DB.
c. DB table / Schema name it's an table optional field that represents the database name for the table replacing the table id.
d. Singular and Plural titles are designations used in interfaces. (Plural is optional).

Warning: Once the identifier is set and utilized in the development environment, it should remain unchanged. Modifying it can lead to adverse effects both in the development platform and the system's data.

In Figure 4, you can view the list of project tables, including the newly added table.
