Commitments List – Layout and Navigation



Each time the Commitments List is displayed, user defined settings can be applied to show what information displays. Some of the settings can be changed directly on the form as well (they just won’t be saved for the next time the form is opened). 

The settings that can be changed are the:

Filter to apply – to show only Commitments with a certain Status and Type

The number of rows (i.e. number of Commitments) which will display per page

The columns of information which will display 

The Filters to Apply and the Number of Rows is a default setting and can also be dynamically changed on the form itself (although those are temporary settings and won’t be saved when the form is exited and re-opened – the default settings would be applied again). See General Navigation for Lists

Columns can not be changed dynamically. They are only changed through Commitment Settings and will apply each time the form is opened.



With the Commitment List displayed:

1)     Click the Form Settings button (the black gear button on the top right of the form).
