User-like entities are used to map WordPress users to WPAS entity records. One user-like entity record is related to at most one user. You can configure a user-like entity by creating a user list attribute.
Globals are app-wide tags which can be used in your view layouts. In contrast to entity attributes, users can set the global value in the plugin settings page, thus applying to all entity records.
You can use WPAS tag functions for displaying date and time information in your view layouts. Some of these tag functions may accept additional parameter called a format string to determine how the date is going to be displayed.
