Display linked data my way


I’m busy custom developing at document management system in Frappe.

I’m having some road bumps. After creating a doctype and populating it with data, I want to then link that data to another form/doctype and when I do it displays the series number instead of fields I want like name or occupation.

I can’t find anything in the documentation to help me. Been combing forever.

Can anyone help please

@Johannes_Maepa Sorry for poor developer documentation as we all must contribute to make it better.

Best start would be finding similar code in ERPNext repository, you will need server side (python) + client side (JS) mix to make your app link/validate. etc.

ERPNext repo: GitHub - frappe/erpnext: Free and Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Next time onward ask very specific questions with what you have done wrt. code & steps, so far and mind to dig in discussion forum as well for answered queries before posting new request.
