Difference between Form and DocType

I have following queries,
1.What is the difference between Forum and doctype?
2. How Customising the form is different from doctype?

It’s the same thing. A doctype is a form in the Frappe Framework. Would recommend you to check out the developer training manual at frappe.io


  1. DocType defines what fields go into the form.
  2. When you Customize DocType, it only affects your account, you should not edit DocType, ideally.

when Iam customising the form, the same changes are not getting reflected in my production. But When i edit doctype and the changes are reflected perfectly.

If you customize form then you need to export the customizations into your custom app using the export fixtures button. Only then the customizations will reflect.
