The data model list view shows all the models within your data model in alphabetical order. When you first open the data model, the role and user model are available in the Model List view. You can use the buttons (A) to navigate between the Model Schema view and the Model List view.
a. The NAME column displays the unique name for each model in alphabetical order. Click on the arrow buttons (↑, ↓) to sort the list in ascending/descending order.
b. The Description column contains any additional information that has been added to support explaining the purpose of the individual model. This information can be changed and updated in the model settings tab that is available when you click on a model.
c. The model is treated as part of your applications settings when this is enabled (via the Settings tab when you click on the model). This ensures a consistent environment across all stages of your application from development to production. This is because the records for a settings model are overwritten to all Sandbox(es) when merging environments. This setting indicates that the model contains fixed information, for example, for countries or languages.
Note: Sandboxes are copies of an application that can be used for making and testing changes before an application is finalized and released for use.
