Task Forms

Type” specific Forms can be presented for Tasks, so you can just include Fields appropriate for that circumstance, rather than using the full default Task Form, saving time and effort and ensuring that the correct data is recorded.

To make use of this feature your system must have the HouseForms Option.


You can create your own default Task Form with just the fields you want to use. Name this default Form Activity. If you have Tasks that require alternative data or information, then make a new Task Form. Give this Form the same name as the Task and it will be presented when using this Task. You can also specify the Task Form to use on the Task Definition using the Form drop-down. (As with other Forms, if you need more Fields, then these can be added using the Extra Fields) .

The form maintenance screens are accessed from the Settings Cog > Forms & Dashboards.
