Form Template Sections: Columns Tab

Administrators can create attributes for Supplemental Data Forms directly in the form templates, without needing to first create the attributes in Data Sets. The attributes will also be available in Data Sets.

Open a Supplemental Data form.

On the Columns tab, select the columns for the form. The system displays all columns of the Data Set that are not workflow columns.

To update the Columns tab:

  1. In New Form Template or Edit Form Template, select the Section tab.
  2. Click New, or select a section and click Edit.
  3. In the Edit Form Template section, click the Columns tab, and select or view the following columns:
