The Percent field is a numeric field type that holds numerical values that are formatted as percentages. Simply type in the whole number you wish the percent to be and it will automatically create it as a percent value (no need to type decimals).
For a more standard number field, use the Number field type.
Adding a Percent field
From the field modification settings, there are several options for customizations.
Solution Manager can select the precision to display in numeric fields. The default precision is ".00".
You can also choose to allow negative values and/or require an entry in the number field.
Example of Use
SmartSuite recognizes Percent field values in Saved Views, Formula, and Rollup fields - all useful in summarizing data. Take a simple example - Rollup individual grades from linked courses to calculate a current grade average.
