Small icon for popup next to fields (instructions, notes) for entering data
Sometimes fields and field labels do not the give user enough information on what or how to fill in that particular field when entering data. First, I see this as a checkbox "option" when creating/editing the field in the Configurator. This would add a small "?" icon next to that field. When the user clicks the "?" next to the field, a small "notes" box would popup giving the user further details about that field.
Moreover, there could be two types of notes: One for "entering" data and one for "viewing" data. The "viewing" notes would appear if the user clicks on the column header for that field when using the Main View.

Thank you very much for your suggestions.
In Configurator for each entity field there is a box "Description". Our developers suggest to use the entries of this box as hints for "editing" and "viewing". When a user sets a cursor to the field, a hint taken from "Description" is shown up. What do you think about it?
