Could someone please help me understand the difference between data Sync and immediate data sync for record type.
I was referring "https://docs.appian.com/suite/help/20.4/Record_Type_Object.html#data-sync
Under "Data sync" the below criteria is given:
You should only enable sync for your record type if:
Where under the topic "Updating synced record types" it talks about immediate update?

Thanks for the clarification! Luckily I think you should be able to meet that use case with the upcoming features in 21.2 for related records and custom fields!
Yes. I saw presentation on related records and custom fields in Appian world .That might help. But not sure in that case we need to create the multiple records and then only we can do relationship among records not directly on tables. This may end in creating unnecessary records (with single table as source) just for relationship.
I don't see these as "unnecessary" records at all - it's just a different approach to using data . Think about CDTs, you have a CDT for every single table you need to query, right? Why not do the same with record types? You can decide which record types are exposed via Tempo or Sites, so record types that are only used for reference data don't need to be exposed to users. Think of the record type as both a mechanism for building record lists / views AND a way to model and access your data.
Thanks Peter, this is exactly what I currently try to wrap my head around regarding impact of new records on my solution designs.
Yes I am agree Peter. It is going to be new approach to solution design.
