How to Determine Sitecore System Field Names

If you want to find out the name of system fields in Sitecore, you need to open the Standard Template in the Template Manager.

Here are some of the available fields (obtained from version 5.2):

Workflow:
__Workflow
__Workflow state
__Lock
__Default workflow

Help:
__Short description
__Long description
__Help link

Publishing:
__Publish
__Unpublish
__Publishing groups
__Never publish

Tasks:
__Archive date
__Reminder date
__Reminder recipients
__Reminder text

Lifetime:
__Valid from
__Valid to

Statistics:
__Created
__Created by
__Revision
__Updated
__Updated by

Might be obvious, but I couldn’t find a list on SDN.

You can find the standard template field names by navigating to the standard template, or in 5.3, the section templates that make up the standard template or on the base templates tab in template builder for almost any template. Most or all of the standard template fields are identified in Sitecore.FieldIDs.

More information (not including the standard template field names) available here:
