Applications → Working with Forms → Customizing Forms → Managing Form Maintenance → Updating Fields on Multiple Custom Forms
You can add, remove, or reposition fields on multiple custom forms at once, with one click of a button. This simplifies the task of updating forms, because you do not have to perform the action manually on each individual form. For example, suppose you add a field to the primary table in a process app, and that field needs to be on all state and transition forms that are based on that table. The field is not automatically added to custom forms, as it is for quick forms. This feature allows you to quickly and easily add the field to selected custom forms in the location you specify.
A list of all custom forms based on the containing primary or auxiliary table is presented in the field Property Editor. After you select an action (add, remove, or reposition), a dialog box opens. The list of forms in the dialog box is initially filtered according to the action. For example, if you want to add the Severity field, the list includes only those forms that do not already contain that field. For "add" and "reposition" actions, the list is filtered again after you select an adjacent field. For example, if you want to place the Severity field next to the Business Priority field, the forms that do not contain the Business Priority field will be disabled.
