Summarization type

Values in numeric columns (those kept in the same units) in all lists in eWay-CRM can be averaged or otherwise summarized - please, read more on functionality in the article Summarization bars. Summarization type can be predefined even for your custom fields - just choose one of the options from the menu Summarization Type at the Custom Field dialog (see picture above).  Each user can change the summarization type according to their needs directly in the list of a particular module (without change touching other users). Changing the type of summarization is also described in the article Summarization bars.
