      Example: decimalSeparator String No "decimalSeparator": ","

    • isYearEndFiscalYear - For date fields only. Indicates whether the fiscal year is the year in which the fiscal year ends or begins. Because the fiscal year can start in one isYearEndFiscalYear Boolean No calendar year and end in another, specify which year to use for the fiscal year. If true, then the fiscal year is the year in which the fiscal year ends. The default is true. If false, then the fiscal year is the year in which the fiscal year begins.

      Example: "isYearEndFiscalYear": true - This field is relevant only when fiscalMonthOffset is greater than 0.

    • firstDayOfWeek - For date fields only. The first day of the week for the calendar year and, if applicable, fiscal year. Use 0 to set the first day to be Sunday, 1 to set firstDayOfWeek Number No the first day to be Monday, and so on. Use -1 to set the first day to be January 1. The default is -1.
