So i'm just begining to create a site in my company. the purpose of this internal website is to reference all setup we have in the company and i have to do it on drupal 8.

In order to do this i am creating a content type where i set all the field required. But i would like to have a specifique field for the screens of company users, because everyone can have 1, or even 3 screen to work here.

That's why i try to create a field "screen" which contain other fields like "serial number", "constructor", "user name" etc... but i would like to have this for each screen.

So if a user have 3 screen he should be able to have 3 fieds "screen"

but i do not find the way to do it ... someone can bring me a piece of solution please ?

  • Are you talking about monitors (computer screens)? You want the site to stretch over 1, 2 or 3 monitors? UPDATE, I understand you want to keep track of all screens in the company. Jul 19, 2017 at 9:28

If I understand your question correctly, the Field collection module offers the functionality you need:

Provides a field-collection field, to which any number of fields can be attached.

However, on the Field collection page it is stated:

Paragraphs is likely to replace field collection for Drupal 8. Field collection is on its way to being deprecated. It is recommended to use paragraphs instead of field collection for Drupal 8 projects.

I would recommend to check out the Paragraphs module, so that the content editor on your site is able to provide the different content (i.e., serial number, constructor, user name, etc.) per screen.
