Within this documentation, it is the same as Business Object.
This term also overlaps the object-oriented programming terminology, where an object is defined as a self-contained entity that consists of both data and procedures to manipulate the data.
A specification of all properties of a System Object or Custom Object. After fully defined, it can contain all details regarding the object, from its name, icon, categories, and custom fields, to the way its record and search screens look, wizards that can be used for creating its Records, naming and numbering patterns for (custom object) records, and rules that are triggered when users are working with the object records.
The architecture in which data exists in TeamConnect. In the user interface, it is represented in the form of tables that hold information about objects and Records in the form of Attributes. Object Navigator allows you to navigate through these tables to select attributes when you are creating Rules, Wizards or Templates, or possibly when you are defining the naming convention of an object. The object model is fully documented in Object Model: Read This First and the additional reference tables it points the user to.
A tool that allows you to traverse through the tables of the Object Model to select Attributes. This is necessary when creating rules, templates, wizards, and possibly when defining the naming convention of an object. Using Object Navigator, you create a Path that identifies an Attribute. For details, see Using Object Navigator.
A specific layout of tabs, sections, blocks, and other user interface elements on the screen that can be assigned to users or groups, which you can customize by adding/removing system and custom Blocks in the tabs as desired. In each object definition, several Object Views can be created so that different groups of users see the information that is relevant to them.
A specific action that allows you to manipulate and assign values to fields in templates and wizards. For example, set to value of path sets the value of a field to the value specified by the Path.
