Add new fields while creating your canvas app. While creating apps using the Common Data Service, makers select an entity as the data source and bind it with data controls.

This allows them to add fields in the selected data source to a gallery, data table, or form. This is good for fields that are already present in the data source. However, if there is a need to add an additional field, the maker would need to save the app, switch to the entity designer to add the additional field before returning back to the app. This results in unnecessary deviation from their original goal of making an app. In order to help the maker stay focused while building apps, we are introducing a new feature to create entity fields inline. Once a field is created, it gets added to the form automatically. The current release will allow adding primitive data types while working with Edit or Display forms.
