Power Baseball League: Rollup Fields

Washington Nationals Park
This is a field that is not a Rollup field. Occasionally they may roll something out onto this field in case of rain. That is not the same thing.

Today on the Power Baseball League we are practicing our Rollup Fields. Plus we are going to talk about Calculated fields too.

Rollups and Calculated fields are smart fields in Dataverse that are set automatically by other data in the system. Rollup fields aggregate data from other related records. This aggregate could be a sum or a max or several other options. Plus you can also filter the records that you will aggregate. Calculated fields allow you to use formulas on one or more fields already in your data.

In this video, we walk through the step-by-step process to set up a Rollup field. Then we talk through some potential use cases for both types. Finally, we cover some limitations and best practices.
