    Dear Jesùs,
    thank you for your request. We would appreciate if you could participate in providing a more up to date documentation. If you could add documentation at, then we could also add the more advanced feature documentation.

    I have installed Datalynx (v2.2-DataMystery 2021102102) on Moodle 3.9.
    I don't find documentation on how to link "Fields" to "Behaviors" and to "Renderers". Official documentation makes no mention of it. Is there any help?
