To enter configuration mode you must use the DFFS button in the list view toolbar

Select which form to configure

On this form you will see the license information and can select with form to configure. You can use the toggle in the top left corner to select production mode or development mode.


This is where you build your form. When you first open the form it will by default contain all fields in the list. You can remove the fields you don’t need in the form by deleting them from the configuration.

You can also use tabs to arrange fields in groups to make the form easier to navigate.

The top row contains a menu where you can switch between forms, or browse earlier restore points saved for the current form.

To build the form you drag and drop elements from the toolbar in the top. You can add multiple columns to have fields or elements side-by-side and you can configure the layout for different screen sizes.

Use the menu on each item to access more properties.

Preview your form while you work

You can click this tab to preview your form without exiting the configuration.


This tab lets you add rules to make you form dynamic. This rule will set some fields as required and prepare an email if the ticket status is New. You can select different triggers and also combine multiple triggers to create more complex rules.

Please note that you must configure both the “If yes” and “If no” to ensure the actions are turned off again if the rule is not evaluated as true.
