Find What You Need in Form Settings
Personalization, customization, flexibility… we love it! These great functions help us to “feel at home” and adjust the software to our specific needs. Take the “Form Settings” windows for example. It enables each user to choose which columns would appear in a document or report table, in what sequence and in many cases which ones should be editable and which in “read only” mode. This set of columns is then saved for you until you decide to change it again.
