**Number Fields **are the most basic form of number type fields.

- The
**Name**for your number field will help define what this value represents. **Descriptions**can be a good tool to keep track of further information to describe the field.**Decimal Place**values can be configured to show the specified number of digits after the decimal in your fields.- The
**Thousands Delimiter**can be configured to show the specified symbol to separate groups of thousands. - You may define whether the value of this field must be
**Unique**per the records in this table. - A
**Placeholder**can be configured to show text in a form field without populating the field with a value.**Placeholders**are only visible when no text is entered in the field. - The
**Default Form Value**can be configured as well. Unlike**Placeholders**, this value can be set by default to submit on a form. For the**Number**field, only digits can be set for this value.

**Decimal Places** can be configured for your field to show up to 10 digits.

If **None **or **0 **is selected, only whole digits will appear in your table components. Some specific behavior to note is that, if a decimal value is submitted on a form for a **Number **field configured this way, rounding will not occur and the digits after the decimal place will not be stored.

The behavior with one or more **Decimal Places **configured is slightly different in that the digits after the decimal place will be stored and rounding occurs. For example, let's say that we have **Decimal Places **configured to **1 **and I enter the following value in a form.

With the current configuration, the value appears rounded to the nearest **1 **decimal place.

If the **Number **field is updated so that **Decimal Places **is **2**, the value does not need to be rounded and the original value submitted on the form can be observed on table components.

The **Thousands Delimiter **determines what symbol separates groups of thousands when viewing the values. This setting does not affect how the values appear in forms. There are currently 4 options as follows:

By default, **None** is configured. Numbers will appear as-is with this setting.

Pictured below are samples of the non-default configurations in the same order as listed above.

**Comma**

**Period**

**Space**
