It allows to create, edit and delete data fields. Only fields created by a user can be deleted. The checked fields become visible in the table. The order of the columns in the table corresponds to the order of the fields in the list. The actions Move up or Move down as well as dragging fields allow to change the order of the fields in this list. The action Restore restores standard order and visibility of the fields.
