Creating the form

    Select template
    Select template

  2. The customer data fields from the template Customer data are automatically integrated in the form. To facilitate the data entry for the date field, change the input type of the field firstcontact to datepicker. (1) Then, click Save page (2).

Now the form is available for data entry. It can be found in the namspace Form.

Using the form

When we create a new customer page, we can now use the form page to create the page and to automatically include the customer data template in the page. The form page has the name Form:Customer data.

  1. To create a customer page, enter a page name in the form field (1) and click Create or edit (2).
