As an App Builder there are a number of scenarios where you will need to find a Field ID. This could be so that you can reference the Field as part of an expression or to use in a keyword reference for a Word export template or Email.
Developer Tools allow you to inspect the HTML that makes up the web form that you are viewing. This example will run through how to find the Field ID in Chrome but all browsers have similar element inspectors you can use.
Find the Field that you would like to know the ID for in the Record in the Workspace. Right click over the Field and then choose the 'Inspect Element' menu option.
This will open the Elements Tab of the Developer Tools which shows the HTML for the element. There will be numerous places in here where the Field ID is referenced
You can then copy and paste this ID to use in your expression or keyword reference. If pasting into a keyword reference on a Word Export Template or an Email Template then paste as plain text to avoid conflict with any font styling.
