In some cases, your collections can contain fields that are not part of the structure. When you create a new field in the Data Manager in the Sandbox Database, the field is added to the structure. When you publish your site, the structure is copied from your sandbox collections to your live collections. Syncing a collection's data does not sync the collection's structure.
The structure isn't something you can view. It's something that the system uses to help the different features know what kind of data is in your collections and what options to make available to you.
Structure is used when you connect your collections to page elements and when creating URLs for your dynamic pages. Because the dataset only contains fields that are part of the structure, you can only connect page elements to fields that are part of the structure. Also, you can only use fields from the structure when constructing a URL for your dynamic page. The structure is not used to validate that the data being added to the collection is of the right type or belongs to an existing field. You can add data of any type to any field.
Non-structure fields are fields that are displayed in your your collection but are not actually part of your database. This can happen if you roll back to a previous version of your site. When restoring a previous version of a site, the previous structure is restored, but data remains the same. So you could have data in your collection without the structure for that data.
In the Data Manager in the Editor and in the Dashboard, these fields appear with a warning icon, indicating that the field isn't defined yet.
If you are working with Corvid by Wix
To add non-structure fields to the structure:
Go to the Content Manager and click the name of the field.
In the dialog that opens, select a Field Type for your field and Save.
