The number with decimal field is similar to the number field. It is a general-purpose field type that can be used to store any fractional numbers for example height and width, ages, areas and so on.
You are able to configure different levels of precision for the numerical values that are stored in this field.
You can also set the field to allow negative numbers.
The Number with decimal field is particularly useful for performing certain arithmetic calculations, displaying data as either numerical values or visualized into charts on your apps frontend.
Please note, in the same way that the Number field might not always be the correct choice of field type, the Number with decimal field might not be the correct choice of field type. If, for example, you're looking to store durations, prices, percentages or whole numbers.
