In this lesson, we create a Lookup relationship field on our custom Project object. The purpose of this Lookup field is to store Project Manager data on projects, and we set the field to lookup to the User object.
Lookup fields are not required, unlike Master-Detail fields.
In this lesson, I create several custom fields. I first create a couple of date fields, one for Start Date (including a Default Value formula for today) and an End Date field for our projects. I also include a Currency field for Budget as well as a Long Text Area field for the project Description.
