Status

The status of the dealer, for example, Active.

The parent dealer of the current dealer record.

Currency

The currency of issue.

Ranking

The ranking of a dealer relative to other dealers, typically for sales or service purposes. Limit of 22 characters.

Owner

The owner of the dealer record.

Generally, the owner of a record can update the record, transfer the record to another owner, or delete the record. However, your company administrator can adjust the access levels to restrict or expand a user's access.

The value in the Owner field affects which records are included in reports that you or your managers run from Reports and Dashboard pages.

Depending on the record ownership mode that your company administrator sets up for the record type, you might see the Owner field, or the Book field, or both of these fields on the record Detail page, and one or both of the fields might be blank. For more information about record ownership modes, see About Data Access, Record Sharing, and Record Ownership.

Stage

The phase of the application and contracting process for the dealer. Default values are: Active, Application Pending, Candidate, and Contract Pending.

Custom Fields

NOTE: Company administrators, whose role includes the Customize Application privilege, typically create custom fields.

Any custom field that is created in an Account record appears as the same custom field in the Dealer record, because a Dealer record inherits a custom field in an Account record. However, any custom field that is created in a Dealer record does not automatically appear in the Account record.

If you want to see the same custom field in both the Account view and the Dealer view, your company administrator can create the custom field in the Account record, and make it visible to both the Account view and the Dealer view.

If you do not want to see the same custom field in both the Account view and the Dealer view, your company administrator can create the Account-specific custom field in the Account record, and make the custom field visible only in the Account view.

For more information on custom fields, see About Custom Fields.
