Tabbed view for viewing the submitted eForms

A new tabbed view is added to view the eForms submitted data. Earlier the submitted eForm was opened in a popup, switching between different submissions was hard. Tabbed view provides an easy way to open multiple form submissions and switching between them.

On the eForm Dashboard, click in the View Data


This will open the submitted eForms data in Grid. Click on the edit icon to view the submitted form data:



The tabbed view has a MAIN tab; this is the parent view from which the eForm is opened. Every submitted eForm data now has it's now tab like #7 above.


Attaching Metadata to File

Metadata can be attached to a file by creating eForm data for a file in the user account.

On the My Document view we have a menu option on file/folder Create eForm Data.

Uponselecting this menu option an eForm selection window is displayed to the user. User then selects the eForm to be linked to the file and enters metadata for the file.


Earlier, the select form window used to be displayed in the modal window

it is displayed in a tabbed view.

Redesigned the Linked files view

The files linked to the eForm were displayed at the top on the edit data window as:

 These were listed at the top with clickable links so that users can download them. However, no file operations were possible on these linked files.


A new Linked file view is added to the eForms view data. In the tabbed view itself, if there are any files linked to the eForm, they will be displayed at the right panel.

Users can now link files in the account to eForm by clicking Link Files button.

Users can also link new files by clicking Upload Files button and uploading new files. The uploaded files will be automatically linked to the eForm data.


A drilldown menu is added to each linked file. By clicking the cogwheel icon, users can perform various file operations which are available in the My Document view.



Send Submit Details Email

A new feature has been added whereby a user can send an email notification to the specified email addresses in the Send Submit Details to: textbox.

Whenever any changes made to the eForm are submitted an email notification will be sent to the configured email addresses.

User can specify multiple email addresses separated by space, comma or semi-colon.
