Within the Modern UX, I see 2 stock fields with the same name.
Here are some of fields we see duplicated in the Modern UX in Staffing:
What is the reason for both fields?
Can we hide one of the fields with the same name?
There are 2 data types; a number (often referred to as a scalar) and a time-varying.
Within Studio, you can identify both fields by the Data Type.
We often use the term scalar in the context of comparing a number field to a time-varying (TSV) or per-period metrics field, to stress that it is just a real number.
This applies to stock fields that are separate fields and do not represent the 'Sum of Periods' or 'Grand Totals' of a TSV field.
The scalar field always represents the grand total amount as a real number.
Release 15.9.x, 16.x
Within the Modern UX, the Administrator has the capability to 'hide' the number (scalar) fields to reduce the confusion.
We recommend hiding the scalar fields due to some known issues with not being able to use them properly in filtering or widgets.
Here is a list of fields that are recommended to 'Secure' using the Modern UX, Administration, Attributes page:
