How to clear a text field
I have 2 fields -- The first is an editable text field called journal entry & the second is a computed field called journal. The journal field takes the text in journal entry & concatenates it with existing journal text. I would like to automatically clear the journal entry field when user hits save or apply (& it's been copied to Journal). How do I do that?
I'm using 5.4 SP1.
I'm not sure you can for a free form text field (values list, date, etc. you could). Is the same if you wanted to populate a text into a text field, since you can not use action via a rule you don't have many options.
You can blank a field out using datafeed though, you just need to get a condition to check for. Have it run every 15 mins or less to clean out the text in that field. You'll also want the feed to reset a value so it doesn't overwrite data you want to keep.
