Group and Sections
Groups and sections are actually very similar entities. They are both used to contain folders and cards.

The difference between them apart from the way they look is that a Group can be expanded and collapsed to hide its contents whereby a Section is permanently expanded and its contents cannot be hidden.

Because of their design, Sections can be used as a header for groups. They do not have to contain anything.

Groups and Sections can be named and also can have an identifying icon.

Collapse/Expand
Folders
Folders work very much like a folder on a computer. They can contain other folders or cards.

There is no limit on the number of levels deep a folder can be.

Folders can be named and also can have an identifying icon (Which does not necessarily have to look like a folder)

Collapse/Expand
Cards
A card is a container for fields and displays its fields as a list.

Fields
There are many field types.

For example, a "Plain Text" field can be used to store any text at all (such as a password).


Most fields are quite similar in that they store information and only really differ by how the data is displayed, edited or whether an action can be performed on it.
