1. Type "Text" is intended for a small description in one line.

For example, this type can be used to describe the composition of a product.

2. The “Multiline text (TextArea)” type differs from the “Text” type in that line breaks can be used in its content.

For example, this type can be used to additionally describe the product (how it is used, where it is used, washing rules, etc.).

3. Type"Checkbox" - multiple choice of certain properties.

For example, with this type, you can enter the size or color of the product.

4. Type “Switch (Radio)” - single selection of a certain property.

For example, this type can be used to indicate the presence of some function (“available” or “absent”).

5. Type “Drop-down list (Select)” - a single selection of a certain property. It differs from the switch in the form of display in the card settings.

For example, this type can be used to indicate the year of manufacture of a product.

For the types “Checkbox”, “Switch (Radio)”, “Drop-down list (Select)”, characteristic values are added.

To add a value, enter data in the "Cases" field.
