Grooper uses the CMIS protocol to connect to a variety of Content Management Systems. This connection can be used to integrate data in powerful ways by allowing the collection of one (or sometimes many) fields of information within a model in Grooper (let's call it Field A), then leveraging that extracted data point against the column of like information in the Content Management system (called Column A) to then pass back other desired fields from other columns in the same row of information.
The most basic thing to understand about performing a lookup in Grooper is what the Lookup Field is and what the Target Field(s) is(are). The Lookup Field is the trigger, and the Target Fields are the result.
