Record types are information that you associate with objects that let you select some of the objects. For example, suppose you have "On the Road" and "In the Office" records types for a lead. Your
can use these values to select what other information it should display. If the record type value is "On the Road", you could have a picklist with values A, B, and C. If the value was "In the Office", picklist values could be C, D, and E.
